Say what you want about Apple and their products, however, you cannot deny the tremendous and incredible influence of Steve Jobs in modern-day technology. There are very few people in the world that leave behind such a strong impact in the technology world. When the history of technology innovation is written, his name will be on the final exam.
One of, if not the most influential person in marketing, design and innovation of consumer electronics and the entire technology world as a whole. If it had not been for Apple’s innovations, we could well possibly be still using flip phones, with no such device such as tablets.
He remained committed till his last days for his company, paved its way to continue its success and never lost focus of what he truly wanted. He had a clear point. He wanted to create products that changed the world. Not make money, and this might well be one of the biggest reasons for his success.
He leaves us on this sad day with memories of countless product introductions in his classy black shirt and jeans. The same attire he always kept in his product announcements that impressed all of us. He does not go unforgotten by his peers.
“I will miss Steve immensely.”
— Bill Gates (Microsoft)
“Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you.”
— Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook)
“He was a great man with incredible achievements and amazing brilliance.”
— Larry Page (Google)
“Steve, your passion for excellence is felt by anyone who has ever touched an Apple product (including the macbook I am writing this on right now)”
— Sergey Brin (Google)
You can’t also forget what he’s done with Pixar studios: 12 movies, 26 academy awards, 7 golden globes & 3 grammy awards. There are few people that know about Pixar’s story and how it would have not been where it is at today, without Steve Jobs. For those with Netflix, The Pixar Story is a movie available on Netflix Instant documenting their start and Jobs’ involvement.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma â€” which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.“
— Steve Jobs, Stanford Commencement Speech, 2005
