A tribute to Steve Jobs

Icon 3 Comments
As I sit here writing this post, I know that far better writers and mightier titans of industry have said it so much better. But I write this post on my infrequently updated blog to mark this day, to be remembered forever by me, as the day Steve Jobs passed away. To be honest, its very difficult to imagine a world without Steve Jobs, which only goes to show the impact of this one man had on all of us.

I've only owned one Apple product, a recently purchased iPhone 3GS since the price for this model went down after the 4GS release was speculated. But what is most amazing is that, even if you've never owned an Apple product (or owned only one like me) - you've followed Steve Jobs, his life, his triumphs, his failures, his charisma, his launches. I know I have. I witnessed them all and I was always in awe. Here was one man, who did unequivocally, change the world. For creating new markets for tablets, for portable MP3 players, for taking on IBM with a different architecture, for going head to head with Microsoft on almost everything, for truly believing in minimalistic UI's, for ushering in a new era in Smartphones and for so much more, he is the definition of a visionary.

I can't really imagine what a loss it would be for his family and friends, but what is truly a testimony to his greatness is that techies all over the world are deeply moved and shocked on this sad day. It really makes me wish there is a rebirth quota in the heavens above, because Steve Jobs deserved more time on this earth and even more we all truly would be blessed to have him around changing the world again.

Thank you Steve, for everything. We're grateful for your life and for giving us the opportunity to one day tell the coming generations, we lived in the time of Steve Jobs.

I don't thinking anyone could say it better. Accomplishments that are not his get attributed to him, but he doesn't need extra things in his resume. Few to none have affected the world so profoundly. I say this as one who has never owned an Apple product and who has frequently criticized Apple. (I did use a NextStep while in grad school. That showed me the future of computing.)

I would have just edited it, but whenever I hit the 'edit' link, I get this error:

From a technological, design and marketing perspective, he surely did change the world.

But don't be so quick the praise the man himself, as if you ever read anything about the man, or any of the autobiographies of anyone who worked with him, well frankly he was a complete @#$ing dick. From the 3rd party narrative I have read he was pretty much a sociopath.

So, while I will praise his accomplishments, I surely won't praise him.
