In Memory of Steve Jobs

“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.”

(Steve Jobs, The Wall Street Journal, May 25, 1993)

The world has just lost its spark of talent, Steve Jobs has passed on after losing his battle to Pancreatic Cancer. The news of his passing saddened most of us, he has touched a lot of people by his visions and products. Nearly everyone all over the world has been exposed at one point or another to an Apple device may it be an iPod, iPad or an Apple computer. His devices revolutionized the technology industry. Apple lost a great leader and visionary.  May he rest in peace and have mercy on his soul.
