Steve Jobs : A legend who will never be born again

It’s been sad few days all around the world after the untimely death of Apple’s CEO, Steve Jobs. Throughout his life, Steve Jobs had really struggled both in personal and professional context. He has faced a lot of difficulties, failures and  rejections to reach where he is today. Many people idolise him and want to be like him, but the true fact is that no one knows what it actually takes to be on par with a man of his caliber.

Steve Jobs has dedicated his life to Apple and their products, with his focus on always giving the best of what the user wants. Even though Apple products are overpriced, the quality and uniqueness of their devices forced people into buying it. Everytime Apple releases a new product, we always get to see umpteen number of people waiting at the store to get their hands on the device. Such has been the influence of Steve’s company on the people. It’s of no marvel that Apple managed to make it to among the most valuable companies in the world. Truly world class work on building world class products.

Steve Jobs’ official biography is set to debut October 24, as publishers race to print stories of Jobs’ life after his death. When asked why he sanctioned such a candid biography, Jobs , replied, “I wanted my kids to know me. I wasn’t always there for them, and I wanted them to know why and to understand what I did.”

Apple has thus proved that it is not only the most valuable company in the world in terms market and stocks, but also Number One in the minds of people who have ever set their eyes and hands on any of their products.

  Thank you Mr.Steve Jobs. You have been such an inspiration and a living example of a person who has shown people all around the world, how it feels like to dare to live their dreams. On behalf of the entire Human Community, I sincerely wish to see you back with your charisma and enthusiasm 🙂 

Tim Cook, the new CEO of Apple

Tim Cook, the man who was recommended by Jobs to take over, has had a very long history with the company. Cook, who has served as Apple’s chief operating officer for seven years, was named as its new chief executive today with the resignation of Jobs, the iconic co-founder of the company. Cook, long considered a front-runner to replace Jobs, has filled in for Jobs during his three medical leaves of absence.

Cook, 50, joined Apple in 1998 as a senior vice president of worldwide operations and was promoted to chief operating officer in 2004. Before joining Apple, Cook briefly served as an executive at Compaq and spent 12 years at IBM, where he ran manufacturing and operations for the company’s PC business. Cook earned a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering from Auburn University and an MBA from Duke.

Cook’s profile has grown steadily in the last few years. He has served as Jobs’ right-hand man at shareholder events and has completely handled earnings calls with analysts for last few years. Recently, he has played a more prominent role at product launches.
