This quote from Steven Jobs:

"Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything—all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure—these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked.")
Okay, oddly, I just posted his quote earlier today in Person24's "How do you stay positive" thread. The collective subconscious is an amazing thing.

A life well lived that changed the world. RIP to a man I admired and respected.

Re: Steve Jobs Dies: Apple Chief Created Personal Computer,

Mr. Jobs was the Gutenberg/Edison of our time.

Born almost exactly 10 years after Steve Jobs, I was an early-adopter of his first Apple creations. Like many others I carry the latest iPhone with me today. He was responsible for moving the power of the computer from the laboratory to our laptops. His work enriched my abilities, my productivity, my philosophies and my life in general... As Apple's tribute reads, "The world is immeasurably better because of Steve."

It must have taken a virulent cancer to claim a man with such resources.

Thanks for all you did for mankind Mr. Jobs. We salute you.

Re: Steve Jobs Dies: Apple Chief Created Personal Computer,

This news hit me real hard - in part because he was such an innovator - in part because I so admire his courage, staying at the helm until almost the very end...

in part because one of my on-line friends started chemo for a brain tumor today, and this morning a colleague was called back to the doctor's office to check out a mass on her liver. Right now it just feels like cancer is winning.




Thank you, Steve Jobs.

He was a visionary and a genius. The ipod and itunes revolutionized music players, the iphone pretty much started the smartphone craze (there was Blackberry, but those were more for business users than "regular" people until the iphone came along), and the ipad brought the tablet back from limbo (remember the stylus-based tablets from a few years ago?). Except for my ipod classic, I'm not an Apple user (die-hard Android devotee), but I admire him for his undeniable contributions to technology. We've lost a great mind.

Re: Steve Jobs Dies: Apple Chief Created Personal Computer,

I just learned of Steve Job's passing in the last few minutes, also with this article:

http://www.cnn.com/2011/10/05/tech/innovation/steve-jobs-philosophy/index.html?hpt=hp_t1

My older son had heard it earlier today.

It's been said that life, and perhaps death with it, is like illusion. And, for some, this is like a super-illusion. Such it is for me with Mr. Jobs.

Here's a second rememberance just shared via e-mail with me...

his "think different" video.

Rest in peace,

I knew this was coming, his resignation from Apple told me that but it was still a shock. He truly changed the world, certainly my world. I wasn't an early adopter of Apple products, but once I bought a first-gen iPod there was no turning back. His determination to make tech products that were both beautiful and easy to use was singular in an industry that cared about neither.

Re: Steve Jobs Dies: Apple Chief Created Personal Computer,

He is the reason I do what I do for a career, admittedly a poor choice as far as making a comfortable living lol

He is the reason I do a lot of things, risks taken, etc. The dude was the man, a god, a BRILLIANT inventor. He fought like hell. It sucks that even having all the money and resource on earth, sometimes the human body has other plans.

Re: Steve Jobs Dies: Apple Chief Created Personal Computer,

Another excellent article:

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/10/06/business/steve-jobs-of-apple-dies-at-56.html?pagewanted=1&_r=1&hp

included there:

If he had a motto, it may have come from “The Whole Earth Catalog,” which he said had deeply influenced him as a young man. The book, he said in his commencement address at Stanford in 2005, ends with the admonition “Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.”

“I have always wished that for myself,” he said.

I was saddened to hear this. What a brilliant person, and how interesting he seemed to be from some of the quotes I've seen. It is a loss for this world. My he rest peacefully.

My parents bought our first mac in 1985, that tiny black and white screen brought the world to our fingertips. We will surly miss you Steve. We already do! 316954_10150851908355302_740105301_21129170_1093964179_n.jpg
