This early morning after waking up I turn on the T.V. and switch to CNN channel I was totally shock about the breaking news that Steve Jobs CEO and Co-founder of Apple past away. I already heard the news that he have cancer but I am not expecting that he'll gone this soon. As I remember it was September when he announced his resignation as CEO of Apple.

Steven Paul "Steve"Jobs(1955-2011)
When ever you heard the name Steve Jobs of course the first thing you think of is Apple and Mac.
Born in San Francisco on February 24, 1955 Jobs grew up in Cupertino, California. He was a multimillionaire by 25, appeared on the cover of Time magazine at 26, and was ousted at Apple at age 30, in 1984.
Jobs had more success when he bought Pixar Animation Studios from George Lucas before the company made it big with "Toy Story." Jobs brought the same marketing skill to Pixar that he became known for at Apple. His brief but emotional pitch for "Finding Nemo," for example, was a masterful bit of succinct storytelling.
In 1996, Apple bought NeXT, returning Jobs to the then-struggling company he had co-founded. Within a year, he was running Apple again -- older and perhaps wiser but no less of a perfectionist. And in 2001, he took the stage to introduce the original iPod, the little white device that transformed portable music and kick-started Apple's furious comeback.
Thus began one of the most remarkable second acts in the history of business. Over the next decade, Jobs wowed launch-event audiences, and consumers, with one game-changing hit after another: iTunes (2003), the iPhone (2007), the App Store (2008), and the iPad (2010).
Steve famous words:
"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do"
