Steve Jobs als Sprecher der ersten Think Different-Werbung, die so nie ausgestrahlt wurde

Der Apple-Mitbegründer, Ex-Konzernchef und Visionär Steve Jobs erlag am Mittwoch im Alter von 56 Jahren einem Krebsleiden. Eine Netzschau

'You've got to find what you love,' Jobs says, Steve Jobs, Stanford University, 2005

“No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true. Your time is limited, so 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 others' 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.”

Remembering Steve, Tim Cook, Apple

“Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.”

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life, Wil Wheaton, WWdN

“I feel so weird about Steve Jobs' passing. I never knew him, I never met him, I don't think I was ever in the same place with him... but he had such a huge impact on my life, I can honestly and without hyberbole say that I wouldn't be where I am today without him.”

"He changed the way each of us sees the world.", Barack Obama

“By building one of the planet’s most successful companies from his garage, he exemplified the spirit of American ingenuity. By making computers personal and putting the internet in our pockets, he made the information revolution not only accessible, but intuitive and fun. And by turning his talents to storytelling, he has brought joy to millions of children and grownups alike. Steve was fond of saying that he lived every day like it was his last. Because he did, he transformed our lives, redefined entire industries, and achieved one of the rarest feats in human history: he changed the way each of us sees the world.”

Post on Google+, Sergey Brin, Google

“From the earliest days of Google, whenever Larry and I sought inspiration for vision and leadership, we needed to look no farther than Cupertino. Steve, your passion for excellence is felt by anyone who has ever touched an Apple product (including the macbook I am writing this on right now). And I have witnessed it in person the few times we have met.”

“I Will Miss Steve Immensely”, Bill Gates, Microsoft

“Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives. The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come. For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely.“

Remembering Steve Jobs Via My Consumer History, Carles, Hipster Runoff

“I was dating this girl who had an iPod mini. I told myself that it was 'the right product for me'. I vibed on it. This was probably one of my most meaningful eras of music. Right before the MP3 was 'completely devalued'. I thought that little machine was a 'box of buzz magic.' It was probably also one of the first 'expensive things' I bought 'without my parents money', so you probably feel a little bit more proud of it. [...] U changed my life. U changed the way I consume. U changed the way I compute.”
