This morning I woke up to the sad news that, Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple past away on the 5 October 2011 at the age of 56. I remember when I was still young and I first laid my eyes on computers it was a apple computer that one of my friends owned. Though My parents didnt have the money to buy me one and I had to go the other route of normal PC’s. Apple Computers was always considered by me one step above the normal Pc’s.

When I got my Macbook Pro it was like a entire new world. Short on that followed my iPhone and on that my iPad and on that Apple TV and to be honest those products changed the entire way I lived. It made everything easier. Listening to music, tracking my exercise sessions, following the news and in so much more ways.

Steve Jobs I think is a great inspiration for alot of companies, his love for his products and his passion for the awesome simplistic UI we have today will always stick and will be remembered for ever.

If companies had the passion and drive that he had for his company I think we will see a lot more great companies. I look up to him, I am honored to be able to tell my kids one day, that I lived in the era of Steve Jobs.

Rest In Peace Steve Jobs. Thank you for all the great products you have brought us so far, and I support Tim Cook as the pressure on him just got a whole lot more.
