Steven Paul Jobs has passed away today, Wednesday October 5th, 2011.
Known as Steve Jobs, he was the CEO of Apple from 1997 until 2011. One of the best innovators out there that I think should be remembered. He had touched so many lives with his invention and ideas.
I feel like he deserves an entry. He impacted on a lot of people, one of them being myself. I grew up with his inventions of the iPod, which what made Apple hit it big. Now, I own an iPod, iPod Touch, iPhone, and a Macbook. Jobs has literally changed our lives in the technology world and he wouldn't stop until all his consumers are content. Yesterday was the Apple Conference, where the new CEO, Tim Cook, which Jobs had appointed took the stage and introduce the new Apple iPhone that everyone was waiting for. No one knew that Jobs would pass away the day after the conference. Did Jobs hold on for that extra day to see how his successor would do? It was all a coincidence, or was it?
I respect Jobs and he's the first person (celebrity-wise/extremely well known) that died which I had shed a tear for. A tear worth shedding.
Wherever he is now, I hope he knows that he's done his job. He made a huge change and certainly impacted everyone's lives. Ask yourself, how many people own an Apple product and you'll know how much Steve Jobs had done.
RIP Steve Jobs, 1955-2011
