R.I.P. STEVE JOBS- THE END OF AN ERA


Steven P. Jobs, the Apple Inc. chairman and co-founder who pioneered the personal-computer industry and changed the way people think about technology, died Wednesday at the age of 56.

I'm a big fan of this very great soul, who changed the world and made us all believe in the innovative technologies. Mr. Jobs had battled pancreatic cancer and several years ago received a liver transplant. In August, Mr. Jobs stepped down as chief executive, handing the reins to longtime deputy Tim Cook.

A college drop-out and the son of adoptive parents, Jobs changed the technology world in the late 1970s, when the Apple II became the first personal computer to gain a wide following. He did it again in 1984 with the Macintosh, which built on the breakthrough technologies developed at Xerox Parc and elsewhere to create the personal computing experience as we know it today.

The rebel streak that's central to his persona got him tossed out of the company in 1985, but he returned in 1997 and after a few years began the rollout of a troika of products -- the iPod, the iPhone and the iPad -- that again upended the established order in major industries.

The whole world has gone into a state of shock after hearing the news of the death of Steve Jobs. The is the message on the Apple.com, the company that Steve Jobs founded –
 

There are so many companies around the world who develop iPhone/iPad/Mac applications and their business started just because Steve started Apple. Here is tribute from one of such company called- Panic


 


Steve Jobs is a great inspiration to everyone and I cannot forget his speech at the Stanford University few years ago.
