Apple.com is my default landing page when I open my web browser.  Why?  Because what Apple has done with technology and marketing, inspires me daily, about the possibilities of innovation and entrepreneurship.  What popped up today was expected, but yet still quite sad.

Today, Apple lost its visionary.  The man who made it all happen.  Steve Jobs.

The man was meticulous.  His vision cutting edge.  I heard that when they were putting together the first concept store for Apple, he had the marble flown into his office so he could inspect the veining for imperfections.  Its only with that attention to detail, building a team of world class professionals and unparrallel marketing, was he able to build one of the world's most valuable companies.  

Here are some excerpts I picked up:

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.

Jobs was known and respected for his business acumen and an almost mystical ability to predict where tech trends are headed.  CBC

Beyond his measurable successes, though, Steve Jobs claims one spot in history above all others: He realized what we wanted before we understood it ourselves. REUTERS

Was he inventor? Salesman? Entertainer? Visionary? Those questions miss the point. Like his devices, Steve Jobs was a medium that led us to other destinations — the ones of our own choosing. That's what made him different. He's gone, but the future he saw is still, quite literally, in our hands.  TED ANTHONY

Here is an insightful video by Steve at the 2005 Stanford Commencement:

 

 

 

Thanks for the inspiration Steve!  Rest in Peace.
