“I believe Apple’s brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.”
That was the piece of Steve Jobs’ resignation letter from Apple, the brightest company he had built and I can also say the brightest company by far. And by now, he got his new role.
Yesterday the world cried. “Steve Jobs Has Passed Away”. It was the headline in every media, an obituary that we might avoided the most. At least for this very day. Steve died at age 56 in California because of his pancreatic cancer. He has been diagnosed that he has tumor in his pancreas since mid 2004 that he had to resigned from Apple on August 24th 2011.
But the thing is, his innovations live with us. People always talk about the Apple products; Mac, iPod, iPhone, and iPad. Its sophistication and friendly use features have made our life easier, funnier, and cooler, indeed. Yes, he made a lifestyle.
I do believe that creating lifestyle is the most important and incredible innovation invention invasion. His innovation to make a new concept of good design, a music player and manager, a touch-then-voila! devices, also the only-batman-who-used-to-owned-this-telephone things are yet the best of human could do. Then I do believe that you’ll automatically feel the sense of prestige by using Apple products. Creating a lifestyle is creating a new mindset. And Steve has totally nailed it.
For me, innovation can be considered as an innovation if it could be useful for the perpetuity of our everyday life. Steve has been the leading actor in this scene. He could continually create innovations because he just kept doing what he loves. He once said
“And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle.”
How we love you Steve.
Ehm. Hello Steve, here I want to say thank you so much for every invention you made, and tell you two things also. First, without you, my friends and I wouldn’t feel so good in playing Fruit Ninja in your iPod Touch and iPad products. That what we call relieve. Second, if you read my old post about my name, you would’ve known that my name is Ica (re : ee-cha). As you always put an ‘i’ in your products, I hereby declare that you (and only you) could call me with a special name, iCa (re : ahy-cha).
Would you “Call it Crackpot” up there, Steve?
