I have been away from my computer all morning and I just got the shock of my life, I heard via radio that Steve Jobs former CEO and Co-Founder of Apple has died today. Steve Jobs was battling pancreatic cancer and just recently stepped down as the CEO of the Apple company due to poor health. I think we all had that horrible thought in the back of our minds when he resigned, we had just hoped that he would bounce back like he has before. It is a strange feeling when you feel sadness when there is a loss of someone you don't actually know, but I guess that is human nature. Today the world lost an amazing business man and creative thinker that was full of passion and above all a hard worker.
I personally remember the brand Apple as chunky big computers that I used at school. They seemed to fade away for a while there but then had a resurgence. Now most people I know own at least one Apple product and if you don't own one then secretly I think you want to!
Steve Jobs, you made a real difference in people's lives through many of your creations. I loved to watch your presentations as you spoke with such passion and I always felt truly inspired by you.
I wish your family, friends and co-workers peace during this hard time and I hope now you will be at peace and no longer in any pain.
You will be remembered as a truly innovative and inspiring man, even now in your death as sad as it is we can all see that with a dream, passion and a lot hard work anything is possible to create. We can be 'INSANELY GREAT' too!
RIP Steve Jobs 1955-2011
Has Apple touched your life in some way? Do you own an apple product?
