To the Modern Day T.A.Edison.. RIP Steve Jobs.

Steve Jobs. You are one of the greatest innovators of all time. You absolutely remind me of Thomas Alva Edison. To the world that thought you are gone, to the world that thought that you are insanely insane, to the world that hated you. Look at what you have done. The man who removed the word complacency from the dictionaries, now God has given you a chance to innovate the afterlife of human being. This blog with fullest respect and adoration, I, dedicate to the modern world Thomas Alva Edison who thought the world how to think out-of-the-box. I would be proud to tell the coming generations that I grow up watching 'Steve Jobs' evolving the world. Tech Legend. Salute! Rest In Peace Steve Jobs!

Statements on Jobs' death by famous personalities:

Excerpts from President Barack Obama's statement:

Steve was among the greatest of American innovators — 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. By making computers personal and putting the internet in our pockets, he made the information revolution not only accessible, but intuitive and fun. And by turning his talents to storytelling, he has brought joy to millions of children and grownups alike. Steve was fond of saying that he lived every day like it was his last. Because he did, he transformed our lives, redefined entire industries, and achieved one of the rarest feats in human history: he changed the way each of us sees the world.


Bill Gates released a statement saying:
    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.

The Walt Disney Company's CEO Bob Iger:
    Steve Jobs was a great friend as well as a trusted advisor. His legacy will extend far beyond the products he created or the businesses he built. It will be the millions of people he inspired, the lives he changed, and the culture he defined. Steve was such an "original," with a thoroughly creative, imaginative mind that defined an era. Despite all he accomplished, it feels like he was just getting started. With his passing the world has lost a rare original, Disney has lost a member of our family, and I have lost a great friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Laurene and his children during this difficult time.

The Nokia Corporation, CEO, Stephen Elop:
"Steve's passion for simplicity and elegance leaves a legacy that will endure." He said the thoughts of all at the Finland-based cellphone maker are with Job's friends and family.

Steven Spielberg:

"Steve Jobs was the greatest inventor since Thomas Edison. He put the world at our fingertips."

Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen:

"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." 

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