An interesting article about Steve Jobs, Apple and its future

This is perhaps one of the most interesting sort-of articles that I’ve read about Steve Jobs. Just the amount of articles and news about Mr Jobs resignation speaks for significance of Steve Jobs and Apple in the lives of tech-savvy people all over the world. This article also gives a GPS idea of where Apple is headed in the coming years. I urge everyone to read this:

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 🙂 

Steve Jobs steps down as CEO

Apple’s Board of Directors announced the resignation of Steve Jobs as the CEO, and the board has named Tim Cook, previously Apple’s Chief Operating Officer as the company’s new CEO, effective immediately.

Apple was once on the brink of extinction when Steve Jobs had resigned earlier. But the return of that dynamic and visionary man brought the leadership and innovation required to make Apple reach where it is today. He has made immense contributions to making Apple, a brand of quality and innovation. In his new role as the Chairman of the Board, he will continue to serve Apple with unique insights and contributions. Jobs submitted his resignation and strongly recommended that the board name Tim Cook as the new CEO.

With the stepping down of this legendary man, Apple’s fans and users are struggling to decide whether or not to hold their faith in the company and their products. It’s clear that there is no one like this man, with a larger and broader influence on the company or their industry. It is well known that the stepping down of Jobs in the early 90’s was owing to health problems and it appears that the reason for his stepping down today, remains the same.

The news has really hit the Tech Industry hard. Earlier today, Apple’s stock had gone down by 5%, revealing that Wall Street has their doubts whether the new CEO can live upto the caliber of Steve Jobs.

Well this news has really been disappointing all around the world and devastating for the Apple devotees, but the question remains….Will Tom Cook lead Apple into all its glory like Jobs did ??? Will Apple keep us it’s standard ??

Success and Failure

Doesn’t it happen very often that we’re faced with a really big challenge in our life whether it be issues with your education or career or love or marriage or with friends/relatives, and we suddenly sit and think ” Why GOD ??!?! Why me ?!?!”. I know that this situation would’ve happened atleast once or more in everyone’s life.

I recently faced challenges regarding my career, wherein i felt like i lost everything. I’m really obsessed with having a good career and taking care of my parents and living a dream life along with them and my most cherished friends. When i was faced with this challenge, i used to constantly keep thinking about how my life would be in the future if i was unsuccessful in achieving those dreams that kept me sleepless. But when i calmed myself down and start to take things in a positive way and with a good spirit, i realised a very important lesson which i would love to share here so that i can hope to influence millions of people to start thinking the same way.

It so happens that when we face success or a triumph in our life, we get so overjoyed about it that we don’t even think about what all difficulties we had faced to get that success. A student who studies day and night is definitely not doing any easy task, but when he gets a really good grade, he does not even think for a moment about the hardships or the tension involved. And since you’re happy and your mind is happy as well, you suddenly feel open to loads of opportunities and you feel so blessed to have all that in your life.

Now if we take the scenario where we are faced with a big challenge. We sit day and night thinking about the issue rather than what can be done hereafter to prevent the particular scenario or we sit and think all the possible negative things about the future that we possibly could !!! As a result our mind weakens, and since our mind and body are one, our body feels weak as well. Then we start feeling sick and blah blah blah…..GOSH !!!!….I feel bad even writing about it !!!!.

When faced with success, we easily forget all the failures and rejects that we underwent to get what we have. But when we faced with a challenge/failure, we forget that we are blessed. When we think that life is over, we forget to realise the fact that we are blessed with wonderful parents, supercool friends and supernice people around us. We forget to realise that we are blessed to wake up everyday alive in the bed, while thousands of people die in their sleep. We forget to realise that we have the privilege to have education, money, and wealth in our lives when there are millions of illiterate people across the world. We have the privilege of having teachers and mentors in our lives who guided us to the right path when we drifted towards the wrong one, while there are so many people who follow the wrong path and end up dead. We forget that we are so blessed that there are people out there who always keep us in their prayers and send all their love through prayers. We forget that we are so blessed to have all these things in our life !!!!!!!

  With every failure there is a success hidden and so is failure within every success. So when success is common in both cases, why do we all keep thinking about our failures ???
