Our world molded by technology and embraced with wonder for change. Steve Jobs leaves his historical mark on our world. A man of remarkable vision, looking far beyond the future to a time when space and reality created fusion so hot that it melted our hearts. The world mourns the loss of a remarkable soul. He changed our lives.
Raised as an adopted child in San Francisco this youngster came across his first computer at NASA at the age of 11 and started working at HP while at high school! The mark of an advanced soul!
Yes, Steve Jobs was a college dropout who then worked at Atari video game maker when his interest in computers developed further to that momentous scene of him working in his parents garage developing Apple Computer Inc with Wozniak in 1976.
The world would never be the same. I still remember whipping out my first Ph.D. thesis on the quaint little Apple computer in my campus room in the USA. Yes I did it all on my little Mac Intosh desktop publishing computer when no one thought I could. All due to that little Mac!
Steve's astute quick mind saw the computer light years ahead of its time connecting people, creating fun and with that pique of curiosity for young and old across all cultures around our planet.
The mind of a genius, the passion of a God!
An unparalled human being...we will never see anyone like him ever again in our lifetime.
Without Steve Jobs where is the excitement going to come from in this industry? I fondly remember the day when the "Mac spoke for itself!"
Who will stride across that stage with sheer excitement of making technology fun.
The Leonardo of technology who transformed technology from hard core science to sheer ease and FUN FUN FUN.
Steve's story from garage to world leader in technology is one of the reasons that so many millions of people are loyal to his products. He made people happy! He created happiness in so many lives. Millions are thankful to Steve for bringing happiness into their lives.
Alas he was struck with a rare form of pancreatic cancer and given 6 months to live. Only to find out thereafter that surgery would prolongue life. However beset with hormonal imbalances Steve's health was poor. Neuro Endocrine cancer typically has a 5 year survival rate of 50%. As we all know Steve Jobs fought it like crazy for five years with the mental capacity to work and continue to create. For five years he led a low profile from the media.
So what drove Steve Jobs to innovate? His excitement to create and share with the world the things that he loved to use himself personally that brought immense fun and happiness in his life. He believed so much in his vision of technology. It seemed like he could see the future and everyone else was behind.
So we remember Steve Jobs words:
"Death is the single best invention of life: Your time is limited so do not waste it by living someone else's life. Do not let other's bad opinions dictate your life and drown out your inner voice. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. " Steve Jobs, Founder & Head of Apple Computer, Inc.
"The last week was a very tough one for me at our Company. Yesterday I chose to stand up for my rights and my cherished values deeply rooted in my memories and legacy of my Father. Today as I watch the news and hear the words of Steve Jobs I am reminded of the fragility of life and I now have the renewed energy to make the needed changes to uphold my vision for my Company Dr. Vie against all odds because I passionately believe in the power of preventing illnesses and creating happiness." Dr. Vie.
May your visionary soul rest in peace Steve.
With love, deep admiration and infinite awe.
Dr. Vie, Scientist & Founder
