Apple also made the following announcement:
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.
I only hope that he knew the impact he truly had on the world!
Steve Jobs effected the tech world in more ways than most will ever realize.
He also was a great inspiration to anyone, no matter your passion!
He taught us so much:
1. LOVE WHAT YOU DO
2. FOLLOW YOUR PASSIONS
3. BEING WEALTHY ISN’T THE MOST
“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me.
Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful,
that’s what matters to me.”
4. TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS
5. BE YOURSELF
6. KEEP THE FAITH
7. FOLLOW YOUR HEART
8. LIVE LIFE TO THE FULLEST
THANKS FOR STAYING HUNGRY
STEVE JOBS… YOU WILL BE MISSED
