Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs, has passed on at the age of 56 after a long and public battle with pancreatic cancer.
Here are some tributes that have been pouring in from around the world.
Larry Page, CEO of Google: “He was a great man with incredible achievements and amazing brilliance. He always seemed to be able to say in very few words what you actually should have been thinking before you thought it. His focus on the user experience above all else has always been an inspiration to me.”
Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder: “People sometimes have goals in life. Steve Jobs exceeded every goal he set himself.”
Paul Allan, co-founder of Microsoft: “We’ve lost a unique tech pioneer and auteur who knew how to make amazingly great products. Steve fought a long battle against tough odds in a very brave way. He kept doing amazing things in the face of all that adversity. As someone who has had his own medical challenges, I couldn’t help but be encouraged by how he persevered.”
Steve Case, Founder of AOL: “I feel honored to have known Steve Jobs. He was the most innovative entrepreneur of our generation. His legacy will live on for the ages.”
Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook founder and CEO said on Facebook: “Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you.
We at eheheheh are truly saddened at the passing of such a great mind and his legacy will continue through his innovations
Heres a quote from an address Steve gave in 2005:
“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.”
Tech it or leave it
