Apple - Rocked to the Core

Steve Jobs - Visionary

October 5th, 2011 – just an average day for most of us. We woke up, hopefully showered and shaved and headed off to work. Little did we know that on this day we would lose someone who many consider one of the greatest visionaries of our time.  A man whose fresh and innovative ideas may very well have changed the world as we know it. The world will miss Steve Jobs.

Jobs was the co-founder and CEO of Apple. He created everything from computers and laptops to iphone, ipads and ipods. He was the “I” in inspiration and innovation. Jobs was a great orator and he shared his ideas and visions with students who he saw as our future.  This was a very wise business move.

Jobs was perceived to have the Midas touch – anything that he worked on turned into gold. The truth is that he worked hard to make all of his projects not just good, but great. He made it his life-goal to make technology something that people wanted to touch. He thought outside of the box to make his products fun, colorful, innovative and cutting edge. Jobs was a master designer who believed that design was more then just the way things looked – it was how they worked that was truly important.

Steve Jobs once said, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.” Job’s profession was truly his passion. This was proven day in and out. Apple has been rocked to the core – but the real question now is what will Apple do now that the founder has passed on? Only time will tell for this rapidly expanding company. Hopefully, it just works!
