Being in the dark day (a day like every machintosh and iphones displays are off), am very much honoured to post this as a tribute to the great “iCon”. As there are tons and tons of posts being published on Steve Jobs' loss, I would to like keep this a short one. With just two things that strike to me on about Jobs' life,
- · Take necessary risks
- · Keep working for perfection wherever you are
First, Steve who has been studying in college for six months had seen no value in the money he spends on it (like most of us realise :P). So he decided to take a risk, ie, to drop out of college. He says this as “one the best decisions he had ever made”.
Secondly, when Steve got fired from his own company Apple Inc., He didn’t stop his visionaries. He started an animation company “Pixar Animations”. And worked hard on it and made “Toy Story” which is the first ever recognised animation movie at that time. That means his work perfection, even after returning back to Apple that made all today’s gadgets a real, escaping from his vision.
Why the name “Apple”? (A funny thought*)
Everybody would have thought someday or other why Jobs named his company as “APPLE”. This thought would have circled in your(my) mind for long time. I couldn’t stand anymore with this confusion and so convinced myself with the following reason,,
Jobs would have thought in his mind for a reasonable name that would have made some major change in human life. From the origin of human race, fruit apple has made two serious changes in human lifestyle
One, the apple, Adam gave to seduce Eve.
Other, the apple that had fallen in front of Newton, leading to discovery of Gravitational Force.
So, Steve would have decided to name his company as “Apple Inc.,” :D.

It’s been a pleasure always to have a thought about this man on our minds. This changed my mobile desktop for this man as below,,
But am sure that one day, our primary school will include a inspirational lesson about him in the curicullum!!
Signing off this post with a thought
“ As long as the letter I refers urself,, So longer will the Man be remembered”
