RIP Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple and incredible technological visionary has died at the age of 56

We here at iCreate would like to express our deep sadness at the passing of Steve Jobs. While we never had the fortune of meeting him in person, like the rest of the Apple-loving community, he was a source of constant inspiration. Our thoughts go to his family and friends in this time of great sadness.

It is also our wish to express just how influential Steve Jobs has been to all of us here at iCreate. His philosophy towards technology and how it sat at the crossroads with the liberal arts is one that iCreate has taken as it’s inspiration from day one, seeking to help others understand and embrace the creative power that Apple computers are able to give to people.

It is incredible to think that Steve Jobs had the vision in 1976 to know just how the world would grow to love the technology he was building, and then to continue predicting, anticipating and creating products that would not only be successful, but would become cultural icons.

The thing we will miss the most about Steve is the clear passion he had for the products, things like watching the gleam in his eye as he reveals he has an iPhone tucked in his pocket or the sheer amazement of seeing him pull a computer from an envelope. It’s unlikely that we’ll see another leader of his ilk in our lifetime.

Thanks for everything, Steve, you will be sorely missed.

From his 2005 commencement address at Stanford…
“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.”
The full speech can be watched below, and even if you’ve seen it before, we think you should watch it again:
