Many people reacted about the unpleasant and shocking news of death of Mr. Steve Jobs. This are some of the statements of well know and brainchild of todays society.
President Barack Obama statement:
Steve was among the greatest of American innovators – brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it. 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.
Bill Gates released a statement saying:
I’m truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs’ death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work. 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.
Walt Disney president Bob Iger said in regards to Jobs:
Steve Jobs was a great friend as well as a trusted advisor. His legacy will extend far beyond the products he created or the businesses he built. It will be the millions of people he inspired, the lives he changed, and the culture he defined. Steve was such an “original,” with a thoroughly creative, imaginative mind that defined an era. Despite all he accomplished, it feels like he was just getting started. With his passing the world has lost a rare original, Disney has lost a member of our family, and I have lost a great friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Laurene and his children during this difficult time.
Mark Zuckerberg wrote on his Facebook page
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.
As an addict fan of Apple, i was shocked by the news, cause way back months ago Steve Jobs resigned and now his dead. As of now he is trending in twitter and we all wish the he may rest in peace and e may continue his works in heaven. Some say he will create iHeaven in earth sort of a joke but nobody knows if this is possible. I honestly cried #iCry, saddened by the news #iSad, and as well mourn for his death #iMourn. But as he said on his well known quotes like this:
”Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma”
“Death is the destination we all share and that is as it should be because death is very likely the single best invention of life”
”Remembering that your going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose”
”Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown you out your inner voice. Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition”
Rest in peace Mr. Apple Maker, we salute and admire your amazing works. If your invention and amazing works were not here and the world wouldn’t change. You made this world more easy for us, and you made the world a better place. #RIPSteveJobs
Congratulations too for iPhone 4s, even though it’s not released yet it is surely a great hit to everyone.
