RIP Steve Jobs, A man who truely changed the world

Post by BIT0112-Rokon on Thu Oct 06, 2011 11:50 am

Steven Paul Jobs died today after publicly fighting advanced pancreatic cancer since 2004. He was 56 only. The Apple Board of Directors wrote:
We are deeply saddened to announce that Steve Jobs passed away today.
It’s simply a great loss. May Steve Jobs rest in peace.


The notes I just got immediately after Steve Jobs passed away:


Bill gates:

I’m truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs’ death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work.
Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives.
The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come.
For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely.

Larry page:

I am very, very sad to hear the news about Steve. 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. He was very kind to reach out to me as I
became CEO of Google and spend time offering his advice and knowledge even though he was not at all well. My thoughts and Google's are with his family and the whole Apple family.


Sergey Brin:

From the earliest days of Google, whenever Larry and I sought inspiration for vision and leadership, we needed to look no farther than Cupertino. Steve, your passion for excellence is felt by anyone who has ever touched an Apple product (including the macbook I am writing this on right now). And I have witnessed it in person the few times we have met.

On behalf of all of us at Google and more broadly in technology, you will be missed very much. My condolences to family, friends, and colleagues at Apple.


Mark Zuckerberg

Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you.

হঠাৎ করে মনে হলো কিছু একটা ফুস করে গায়েব হয়ে গেছে। বুকের ভেতরে খালি খালি লাগছে।

(আজব তো! আমি এখানে এখন পর্য্যন্ত তিনবার কমেন্ট দিয়ে ব্রাউসার বন্ধ করলাম, আর প্রত্যেকবার এসে দেখলাম আমার কমেন্ট পোস্ট হয় নাই Mad Mad এবারে না হইলে আর দিমুই না কমেন্ট Mad )
