October 5th is going to be a sad day to technology lovers. As you all are aware; Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple Inc. has passed away at the age of 56 on 5th October 2011. As common to everybody, he also did not have a smooth flow of nicely organized stages in his life; but Steve was praising that as the most important part that created the path to his innovations. One such example is the tragedy of getting fired from the Apple company which he co-founded. You already know this fact, but how would you have responded?

You will survive, if you are fired from the company that you work for!! right? But what if you are fired from the company that you built from the scratch; and interestingly by the CEO recruited by yourself? Do you have the strengths to survive which Steve had?

Steve explained this situation later as;
The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.
Many people would explain this as "by the sadness of being a looser", but Steve said "lightness of being a beginner again".

Young Steve Jobs introducing the Macintosh

After getting fired from Apple, he founded NeXT Computer Inc. which Apple Inc. happened to buy after another 11 years because NeXT was doing so good; and Steve became the head again. At NeXT so many innovations came out; like an email where images and videos can be shared, a web framework called WebObjects which was later used in Apple applications like Apple Store. Most importantly NeXT's NeXTSTEP evolved as Mac OS X.
Under Jobs guidance, Apple created so many attractive items like iMac, iPod, iTunes Store. The revolutionary invention of multi-touch display iPhone changed the mobile phone industry dramatically.

Does "i" stand for Innovation?

According to Apple, "i" was initially used in iMac which stands for Internet. Later Apple used it for branding all consumer machines. However I prefer to consider this "i" to stand for "Innovative"; where iPhone would mean Innovative phone.
With the death of Jobs, people has started using "i" in front of the word sad (as iSad), does it make scene?

Stanford Commencement - The great speech

Let me finish this tribute with a quote from the Stanford Commencement Speech.

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Since this genius is a Buddhist, may Steve attain Nibbana.
