In Memory of Steve Jobs 1955-2011

Steve Jobs' commencement at
Stanford 2005:

"Your time is limited,   
don't  waste it living
someone else's life".
"Don't be trapped by dogma -
which is living with
the results of other people's  thinking.
Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out
your own inner voice.
And most important, have the courage to follow
your heart and intuition. They somehow already
know what you truly want to become.
Everything else is secondary".

 I personally found Steve Jobs to be an inspiration.

He was a true visionary! Inventing the iPad and the iPod, we had never seen anything like this before. I hope Apple continues to keep the integrity he gave it. People are saying he was our Thomas Edison. He did change the way we saw the world. Time magazine stopped their presses for the first time in twenty years, to put his picture on the cover. Funny, he created the iPhone, iPad, and iPod, yet always used the word "we".

No doubt, he was a brilliant man. One of the online news outlets had a headline that read....iSad.

Ginny mentioned all the "i" inventions but the first computer I ever touched was an Apple Macintosh back in the '80's.

The world has lost a great man.

A brilliant man who's time ended far too soon. I love the commencement speech. That pretty much sums it all up doesn't it. A very nice tribute

Me too - they never said - but I hope he was a Christian too. He had some brilliant ideas for sure. sandie
