What kind of gadget blog would this be if we didn’t pay respects to one of history’s all time gadget masters? I am of course talking about Steve Job’s recent resignation as CEO of Apple.
In the land of technology, gadgets and business, Steve Jobs is on the top of my list of people who I look up to. In his illustrious career at Apple, there are two things that stand out most and have been incredibly inspiring: firstly, his coming back to Apple and transforming the company from just another tech business into the world’s most admired company and secondly, his vision and drive to continually be innovative and courageous in the technology space.
As a result, he has changed the way we use technology, for the better.
The other main thing I like about Steve Jobs is that he is a good guy who finished first – without knowing him personally, he presented himself to the world as a man of character – humble, hard-working, honest and genuine. Not to mention having a good sense of humor.
So, from me and many others, well done Steve. We applaud you and your career. You deserve your rest, and we are very glad that you’ll still be at Apple in some capacity!
To end this small tribute to Steve Jobs, I end with one of his quotes which very much applies to life:
“I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”
