Loss of a visionary, Steve Jobs


Yesterday evening when I came back from the Pottery Studio, 
Gaurav told me about the crazy shooter roaming in Bay Area 
killing and injuring people since morning. 
To update with the latest news about the same we tuned to CNN
But the shocking breaking news was flashing there 'Steve Jobs Dies'. 
World has lost a visionary. 
This post is the tribute to a great man. 

"Steve Jobs - a man who made this planet an iPlanet", says a friend on Facebook.

" The world has lost a visionary. 
And there may be no greater tribute to Steve's success than the fact that 
much of the world learned of his passing away on a device he invented." 
- President Obama on the passing of Steve Jobs


CNN and ABC were giving special report on Steve Jobs since yesterday when I came across this video via Stanford University 

Steve Jobs' 2005 Stanford Commencement Address

Pictures to tribute the Visionary Steve Jobs via friends on Facebook and Blog World.



notice the Jobs's face outline in apple,
this apple can be the new logo fro Apple and it will be a big tribute.

Thank you Steve Jobs for all you gave to the world
RIP Steve Jobs
