One year after Jobs: How the world misses one of it's best entrepreneurs!
Innovator, Inventor, Visionary, Technologist and Futurist, all these terms are synonym to the man who changed the the world of technology with his sheer brilliance, Steve Jobs.
On this day, last year, the most amazing entrepreneur that the world has ever seen, died after his long battle with cancer and some other health issues.
Since then, the Most valued company in the world, Apple has missed his presence, big time. In the Era of Steve Jobs, Apple was The Innovator! Apple would show something new to the world, and then everybody else played catch-up.
But, since the past one year, Apple hasn't met the standards Steve Jobs once set for the company. No strikingly distinctive products, criticism for new services(Apple maps, anyone?) and uninteresting press releases. All this, and a few other factors has led Apple to lose some of it's shine.
There's no doubt that Apple's boat is still being propelled by the momentum it got from Steve Jobs, but the big question here is, for how long?
The Street says, "If Steve Jobs Were Alive, He Would Fire Tim Cook."
Though, the company's sales have been at an all time high, still, one surely misses the innovation and perfection that Steve Jobs brought to Apple's products.
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything, all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. Stay hungry. Stay foolish.”
- That ladies and gentlemen, was Steve Jobs.
