Steve Jobs is dead, the spiritual foundation of Apple Computers, has sadly passed away.
The World has lost a creative genius, a visionary, and all-round amazing human being.
Here is Steve Jobs’ thoughts on how to live your life before you die:
Apple didn’t specify the cause of his death. Steve Jobs had battled pancreatic cancer and several years ago received a liver transplant.
During his more than three decade-long career, Mr. Jobs transformed Silicon Valley as he helped turn the once sleepy expanse of fruit orchards into the technology industry’s innovation center. In addition to laying the groundwork for the modern high-tech industry alongside other pioneers like Microsoft Corp. co-founder Bill Gates and Oracle Corp. founder Larry Ellison, Mr. Jobs proved the appeal of well-designed intuitive products over the sheer power of technology itself and shifted the way consumers interact with technology in an increasingly digital world.
Unlike those men, however, the most productive chapter in Mr. Jobs’ career occurred near the end of his life, when a nearly unbroken string of innovative and wildly successful products like the iPod, iPhone and iPad fundamentally changed the PC, electronics and digital media industries. The way he marketed and sold those products through savvy advertising campaigns and its retail stores, in the meanwhile, helped turn the company into a pop culture icon.
Aww, RIP Steve Jobs: visionary, genius, husband and father; the World will miss you.
