Remembering Steve, who would have turned 60 today. "The only way to do great work is to love what you do." pic.twitter.com/0YD0gZ7jvm — Tim Cook (@tim_cook) February 24, 2015Happy Birthday Steve.
If lived, Steve Jobs would have celebrated his 60th birthday today, i.e. 24th February. However, after a long and hard battle against cancer, it was not meant to be. He was instantly honoured with titles such as "visionary" and "father of the digital revolution." On the first anniversary of his death, Apple dedicated the home page of their website to Jobs, complete with a video tribute to the company’s former CEO. Steve Jobs is widely credited with turning a sinking Apple (in the late 1990s) into a multibillion dollar powerhouse by launch of products like iMac and iPad. He has also been credited for revolutionising music through iPod and even films through another company he co-founded, Pixar. Yes, the very same Pixar that gave us unforgettable movies such as the Toy story, Monster Inc, Finding Nemo and Cars. In Apple's early days, they relied on celebrities for selling their products. But soon, the charismatic and attractive personality of Steve Jobs was brought to attention and he became the public face of the company. It was a win-win situation, as Steve Jobs could speak the language of engineering as well as dumb it down for the general masses. It was he that convinced us to buy his products. As he famously said, "I don’t believe in market research. People don’t know what they want until we show it to them." Tim Cook also took to twitter to commemorate his former boss.
