Steve Jobs

Whether you like him or hate him...

Whether you are Microsoft or Apple fan...

Whether you own an Apple device or not...

There's no denying that Steve Jobs was a one of a kind! 

A brilliant and revolutionary man who has contributed immensely to our present lives...
But also to our future!

You might even call him... one of the "good apples"!

With his passing, we can expect a lot of tribute messages, feature articles and long hour shows on Jobs life, from a personal and professional stand. 

From his childhood memories, going on to his university days, where he spent most of his hours locked up in a garage in California, trying to come up with new devices, we are bound to get a more close and accurate retrospective of all his life steps until reaching his prime at Apple, a company that he began out of nothing and that now enjoys the status of being a ground breaking brand that offered comfort and quality, while at the same time setting high standards for others to be inspired from.

After seeing my Facebook wall this morning and watch nothing but comments (from friends but also admirers like Google, Barack Obama, YouTube, and so forward), pictures, quotes and videos towards Mister Jobs, I felt the need to share some of it with you readers... 

Let me leave you a few articles, videos and quotes all related to one of the most influential and remarkable men of our generation!


"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. There is no reason not to follow your heart."

“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” 

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your 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."

"I believe life is an intelligent thing, that things aren't random"

 “My job is to not be easy on people. My job is to make them better.”
