The passing of an icon . . . 

Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple passed away yesterday, Oct 5, 2011.

I have read numerous biographies about him and had concluded that while I was a huge fan of Jobs (much more than Apple, as a company) I wouldn’t necessarily want to work for him – he was extremely meticulous, argumentative and once he set his mind on something, could be really difficult to sway. Having said that, he was mostly right on most things – he had vision and he almost single-handedly made those visions reality.

He will truly be missed and Apple as we know it, will never be the same without him.

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. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About 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 people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. – Apple Inc.
