Apple have just announced the passing of Steve Jobs (1955 – 2011). This man founded two hugely successful businesses that have changed the face of technology and the way the world works. He was an inspirational leader and a visionary of the highest order.
The Board of Apple have said the following:
We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today.
Steve’s brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives. The world is immeasurably better because of Steve.
His greatest love was for his wife, Laurene, and his family. Our hearts go out to them and to all who were touched by his extraordinary gifts.
This beautiful speech by Steve Jobs in 2005 at Stanford University gives an insight into his life and shares some of his wisdom and vision.
My favourite Steve Jobs Quote: ‘I just want to put a ding in the universe.” He most certainly did that.
