I was going to finish up my 30 day blog challenge, but I feel that this is more important. I feel that maybe some of you are tired of hearing about it, but it's time to bring up Mr. Steve Jobs.
Yesterday, this news hit me really hard. I wasn't sure why at first. I continued to read articles, and I became more inspired than anything else.
Have you ever read anything about Steve Jobs? Let me give you a basic, quick timeline.
1976-Steve Jobs is 21. He drops out of college and starts a computer company in a parent's garage with Steve Wozniak. The first Apple computer, also known as the first personal computer, is born.
By the time Jobs was 25, he was already a multimillionaire, with his computers being distributed all over the world.
By 26, he was on the cover of Time magazine.
By 30, Jobs was fired from Apple.
If you get time, I highly recommend you read up on Steve Jobs. His story is amazing, and inspiring.
I read articles where they call him a genius, compare him to Edison, and say that he's had the biggest impact in the world of computers. All of this, and so much more is true.
Yesterday, the world lost the most creative person that the world has seen in a very long time. Jobs once said that he believes the outside of their computers should be as beautiful and aesthetically pleasing as the hardworking hardware and software inside. Marketing genius, brilliant, amazing, revolutionary are just a few words I would like to use to describe him.
And so, as I sit here on my Macbook, with my iPhone next to me, and even using my Apple router, I would like to thank Mr. Jobs.
Mr. Jobs, you will FOREVER be remembered. You've created such amazing inventions as iPods and iTunes, which has changed the way the world listens to music. You had the drive that most people can only dream of. You had the skill, technique and knowledge to literally change the world. I truly hope that he knows the impact that he had.
RIP Steve Jobs. Your long battle is over. My condolences go out to his family and friends.
Sent lovingly from my MacBook.
