Thank You Steve

We were shocked by news from Cupertino that ex-CEO of Apple Inc, Steve Jobs had left us on 5th October 2011. He died at the age of 56.
This day come as a very sad day for each individual all over the world. Coincidentally, the disastrous news came a day after Apple releases the next generation iPhone 4S. This goes to show that probably Steve had hold on till the very final moment in which he manages to see his last solid contribution to the iPhone family. Some dubbed the iPhone 4S = iPhone 4S-teve.

The picture above shows the tribute of Apple Inc towards the legendary Steve Jobs for his everlasting contribution towards man-kind. News spread all over the world through some of the technology that Steve invented with his teams of experts in Apple. The whole micro-blogging service, Twitter was flooded by tributes to Steve on the day the sad news were released.

Pictures of all over the world were seen paying tribute to Steve, mostly at the nearest Apple Store that one could find.

Below is the statement from Steve's successor, Tim Cook:


I have some very sad news to share with all of you. Steve passed away earlier today.

Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being. Those of us who have been fortunate enough to know and work with Steve have lost a dear friend and an inspiring mentor. Steve leaves behind a company that only he could have built, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of Apple.

We are planning a celebration of Steve's extraordinary life for Apple employees that will take place soon. If you would like to share your thoughts, memories and condolences in the interim, you can simply email

No words can adequately express our sadness at Steve's death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much.
