You lived. You really, really lived.
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do,” he told the Stanford grads in 2005.
“If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on.”

i just seen it,its really steve’s apple…..
The day the music died….RIP Steve Jobs (1955-2011)
Gone. Too soon.
He changed all of our lives. Design, interfaces, communication. He rewrote all of it.
Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.
Amen to that.
A goodie is a goodie is a goodie…
I never met Steve but I feel like I’ve lost a friend. RIP.
same here!! Dont know why? maybe because what he created and sttod for, really connected deep
Well said. beats all that “we’ve had this article ready for 4 months” shit i keep seeing on the net.
…the man died but the legend lives on
thank you for not trotting out a canned obit for a genius.
a hat tip, a pause, a heartfelt thank you… and make something wonderful happen.
Please, nobody write “first!” as a comment.
I love this quote….
I want to put a ding in the universe. – Steve Jobs
…and he did…
… and he inspired millions to live … to rise from the mundane …. the world is a sadder place without him..
“I’d rather be a pirate than join the Navy.”
my favorite steve jobs quote.
And you gave us great insights on how to live. Wish I’d spent my 62 years half as wisely as you spent your 56. RIP Steve.
Its not the days in your life, but the life in your days. Steve, no one will fill the big boots you have emptied. RIP
he said he wanted to “put a ding in the universe” and I think he succeeded.
Thank you Steve!
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.” _Steve Jobs http://pic.twitter.com/QtnJRgk2
Today we loose a Visionary! A Legend!
RIP Steve… U teached me how to think :(
But apparently not to write.
sad sad day. RIP
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve
ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because
almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of
embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of
death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are
going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you
have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not
to follow your heart.”
— from his 2005 commencement address at Stanford
Sad to see such a great mind and great entrepreneur to die so young at 56 years old. The world has lost today one of the greatest visionaries! Steve was one of the few who could bring the future into the present. RIP
There. That’s exactly what defines Steve. He brought the “future to the present”.
…if you have a dent in the universe – you will feel the earth shake…
He was a true visionary. His story of struggle, success, failure and finally unfathomable life changing innovation and achievement is an inspiration for anyone with a heartbeat. Rest in peace Steve. You’ll be missed, especially by this guy named MG who’s currently weeping over a Macbook Air.
RIP Steve! Today we all lost a great visionary, innovator, and leader in the world or technology, education, and entertainment. I am grateful to have met one of the founders of Apple and even more grateful to be able to enjoy all of its great products. My thoughts are with you and your family.
i got emotional after a long time :(. Steve Jobs.. you changed the way we view and live with technology.
iSad !! He is the person who has shown all of us how a smart phone should be like..
Rest in peace, Steve. We will stay hungry, we will stay foolish, don’t you worry.
He said : This changes everything. And it did when apple launched products. Steve is no more. But this doesnt change anything , he will be remembered everytime someone uses an apple product. Much respect and R.I.P
The light that burns twice as bright burns for half as long – and you have burned so very, very brightly, Steve.
I never tear up when people who are famous die but damn if I didnt over this. He’s on the list of people I wish I knew personally. He’ll be sorely missed all.
I became an entrepreneur largely because of Steve’s inspiration. He showed me that the careful combination of creativity, arrogance, and self-awareness are the three most important characteristics of a successful entrepreneur. Sound about right, Mike?
May be one way to appreciate his and your/our live/s and work – is to accept the process of reinventing and rethinking yourself and/or your way of life – to reflect, rethink and recover and change – instantly…;-)
Stay hungry, stay foolish!
Been dreading this day… doesn’t make it any the less sad :(
A true visionary…. Thank you, Steve…
I got into tech because of this man. I didn’t go into it to make money: I got into it because he convinced me that I could change the world. And he was right. And we are all changing the world, right now, because of this man.
I’m not the only one crying at the Starbucks today.
Shining days – do not cry because they are over – smile because they happened.
Steve, we love you.
Steve, your genius is forever!
His contributions to the world will be around for many generations to come.
Its a sad day, cant remember too many business people that have ever inspired so many
This is like losing John Lennon, Elvis, and Michael Jackson all on the same day – he transcended pop culture, music, entertainment, technology, and entrepreneurship like no one before him.
Very sad day.
Some people just live, other people really make a difference and leave a legacy behind. To the family left behind our prayer are with you. He lived an amazing life. D. Guzman
Sad. May the force be with him and his family.
In history, the first Apple that comes to mind is that of Adam & Eve. The second Apple derives of Newton’s Law of Gravity. The third is Steve’s Apple Computer. His legacy is forever immortalized. He will not be forgotten. RIP Steve Jobs.
Accurate history doesn’t acknowledge Adam & Eve, as the event never happened.
Rip Steve! Job well done.
Farewell, Steve. You are in our hearts. In our devices. Everywhere we see excellence, we shall find you there.
He lit his torch, he carried it all the way, and he showed us how to do it too. That was the holy trinity of his great achievement. May he live on through it forever.
RIP Steve Jobs
Where would we be without you?
RIP, you did great things.
He’s an example of the corporate greed Obama and the protesters on Wall Street talk about. Amassing vast wealth exploiting third world labor and on the backs of thousands.
Flying high above the rest of us on his private jet.
Time for Eric Holder to grab our fair share of his ill gotten gains and give it back to those if us in need.
Hillarious, a parasite claiming his undeserved slice of pie that able minds created.
It’s you who’s greedy, wanting something you don’t deserve.

He truly lived!
REST IN PEACE
Steve’s effort makes Apple famous in the world
Steve, you have come to the last step of your thousand mile journey but you have carved a new path for others to walk through. Great menand women will now lead by following this path. RIP
iPhone 4s = iPhone for Steve (cit.)
Without the iPhone’s revolution I wouldn’t be surprised if we are still using fanciful iterations of candy bar, flip and stylus- dependent touch phones. Steve’s iPhone came to knock the mainstream phone makers to sit up and, up till now, most of them are still playing catch up. The iPhone Revolution is not just in hardware but in software and a whole ecosystem of business model. This space is not enough for me to talk about the equally revolutionary nature of the other iDevices (iPod, iPad, etc). I pray that with Steve’s absence, the tech world would not enter into another Dark Age of Innovation…
RIP, Dear Steve Jobs.
… Your physical absence at Apple prior to your demise probably explains the delay in the release of iPhone 4S and the apparent mixed reception it is having now…
“Damirifa due, Oberima Steve! Onipa abeyeebi na woanbeye ne nyinaa…” (The quote is in my mother tongue, Ashanti)
The quote literally translates “Man came to do something, and not everything.”
An inspiration and a change agent. Much admired, loved and feared. You must be visionary and stubborn to affect change. RIP Steve Jobs.
what does “t” stand fro here ?? any guesses….
We miss you Steve
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”-Steve Jobs..
Bold enough to believe he could change the world & talented enough to do it
Gaymeter: OVER 9000!!!
Rest in Peace Steve Jobs!
So so so saddened.. :(
No other name will be able to become a synonym of Apple..
You’re wrong. He not only lived. He will live.
RIP Steve… :-(
Such a sad day.
About to give up everything and start pursuing ideas and dreams!!! :phttp://uncrunched.com/2011/10/05/goodbye-steve/#comment-form-guesthttp://uncrunched.com/2011/10/05/goodbye-steve/#comment-form-load-service:Facebook
Truly a genius. Wish we could have seen more of his innovations! RIP Steve.
Will miss Steve Jobs, forever.
Steve really put a dent on the universe!
people are sharing a lot of images.. we created a wall to view them:
The world was a better place because of Steve Jobs was in it! Technology is where it is today because of Steve Jobs and his visionary spirit and talent! I thank him for all that he contributed to this world! And will forever be grateful to him and remember him fondly! Love A Apple Fan And User For Life!
RIP Steve Jobs you are truly an inspiration!
RIP Steve. It’s a very sad day for the world.
He was somebody whose judgement you could trust and believe in.
My inspiration. I will miss you Steve.
