• Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish...Thanks Steve.

    I think Steve Jobs said it right when at his Stanford commencement speech in 2005 he made the statement “Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish” a quote he had seen earlier in his life on the back of a final edition magazine.

    It is strange to think of the Apple brand without Steve Jobs at the helm or anymore in the background, because it was his vision that has shaped the way we integrate with a large portion of technology everyday. My condolences and thoughts are with his family, friends and staff today.

    The way I have always seen and admired the Apple brand and Steve Jobs is that it was never necessary to be the first to the field, but when you get there, be sure to provide the best. His devices weren’t the first touch screens, MP3 players, phones, computers or tablets. But they became the ones we wanted.

    Their popularity, their ease of use, makes Apple what it is. Steve Jobs was the mind behind it, maybe not all of it, but he would stand up and be counted, for his products were ultimately only as good as his words.

    Our daily interactions, the way we process, read and share information has changed and in large part, thanks to this one man’s vision. 

    Steve Jobs to technology was like the Beatles to music, without one the rest could not simply follow.

    Every adjective has been used to say what a visionary, thinker, inventor, designer, guru, legend he was, and I can’t add to it, all I can say is; thank you Steve.

    “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
