Wednesday, October 5, 2011

Larry Page, CEO of Google

"He was a great man with incredible achievements and amazing brilliance. He always seemed to be able to say in very few words what you actually should have been thinking before you thought it. His focus on the user experience above all else has always been an inspiration to me."

Steve Wozniak, Apple co-founder:
"People sometimes have goals in life. Steve Jobs exceeded every goal he set himself."

Paul Allan, co-founder of Microsoft:
"We've lost a unique tech pioneer and auteur who knew how to make amazingly great products. Steve fought a long battle against tough odds in a very brave way. He kept doing amazing things in the face of all that adversity. As someone who has had his own medical challenges, I couldn't help but be encouraged by how he persevered."

Steve Case, Founder of AOL:
I feel honored to have known Steve Jobs. He was the most innovative entrepreneur of our generation. His legacy will live on for the ages

Phenomenal Speech by Steve Jobs


Story from
Steve Jobs' death on Wednesday triggered an outpouring of emotion around the world, as admirers paid tribute to the man who helped shape the digital age.
His death sparked tributes from all quarters - heads of state to technology workers, colleagues to competitors, celebrities to everyday users of his company's products.
"Steve was among the greatest of American innovators," President Obama said in a statement. "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."
In Cupertino, dark clouds gathered over Apple headquarters at 1 Infinite Loop, where the flags flew at half staff Wednesday.
A steady stream of visitors flowed through Jobs' Palo Alto home throughout the drizzly day. Security guards stood sentry outside the corner house on Waverly Street, which soon became lined with cars.
As word spread of Jobs' death, police arrived and barricaded the street. Neighbors and others began dropping off flowers at the corner of Waverly and Santa Rita Avenue, while a child rode by on a bike, filming the scene on his iPhone.
Among those paying their respects was a man who declined to give his name but called himself a longtime neighbor.
"Steve was always a good neighbor," he said. "On Halloween, he'd open up the inner courtyard of his house and have a cauldron bubbling with dry ice, and as the kids came in, he'd reach in and pull out boxes of apple juice. That was one job he never delegated."
Another neighbor, Brandy Faulkner, said she felt compelled to come, as she placed a bouquet of flowers at the corner. Faulkner said she loved that Jobs lived in the neighborhood, in a regular house with orange flowers out front and not in some sculpted manor. He seemed like a regular guy, she said.
California Gov. Jerry Brown hailed Jobs as a native son.
"Steve Jobs was a great California innovator who demonstrated what a totally independent and creative mind can accomplish," Brown said in a statement. "Few people have made such a powerful and elegant imprint on our lives."
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg called jobs "a mentor and a friend," thanking him on Facebook "for showing that what you build can change the world. ... I'll miss you," Zuckerberg said.
