"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 praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward. Maybe they have to be crazy. How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that's never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels? We make tools for these kinds of people. While some 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." - Steve Jobs, Apple Computers.


Steve Jobs' 2005 Stanford Commencement Address - YouTube

Unbelievably remarkable individual.

RIP Steve Jobs

CNN, CNBC and MSNBC devoting the evening's coverage to the passing of Steve Jobs.

President Obama's statement:
Quote:
Michelle and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Steve Jobs.

Steve was among the greatest of American innovators - brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it.

By building one of the planet’s most successful companies from his garage, he exemplified the spirit of American ingenuity.

By making computers personal and putting the internet in our pockets, he made the information revolution not only accessible, but intuitive and fun.

And by turning his talents to storytelling, he has brought joy to millions of children and grownups alike.

Steve was fond of saying that he lived every day like it was his last.

Because he did, he transformed our lives, redefined entire industries, and achieved one of the rarest feats in human history: he changed the way each of us sees the world.

The world has lost a visionary.

And there may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented.


RIP, Steve.

Everyone who's close to me know how much I admire(d) this guy. It feels like a lost for me personally too. His legacy will be remembered and there probably won't be another 'Steve' in our generation. Love him or hate him he changed the way we 'connect' Just think if there was no iPhone. . .

Anyways RIP steve you'll always be one of my idols.

Default Quite a tragedy

Very sad indeed. Jobs' genius impacted the high technology world and improved the lives of billions. May he rest in peace.

Shame that we can spend trillions of dollars fighting a "war on terror", when the "war on Cancer" is one that human beings are being annihilated in. Even more pathetic is that a billion dollars has to be raised to keep a President in office who is far more likely to invest in the level of medical research desperately needed to beat this disease.

Time to adjust our priorities. We lost a giant today.
