Steve Jobs' death is very personal for me...

I don't want to write about his life and accomplishments, the story will be repeated in every media channel hundreds of times for the days to come.

I wanted to say that I have been a die-hard Mac user since about 2001, in fact, this statement does not start to describe it, so I will provide the following statistic: since 2001 I bought two PowerMacs, one Mini, two PowerBooks, three iPhones and couple iPods, and all this does not include the phones and tablets I got from work. 

I have read three biography books about Steve and countless articles -- I spent a lot of time re-thinking his management style and choices he made and I can honestly say that for me he was the most important and most visionary person in my professional field.

 

I am very sad that he is gone and despite I've got Android as my platform of choice, I will really miss him pushing the boundaries of what we should expect in product design.. sheer quality that nobody was ever been able to match.

Very sad news indeed..a true iCon
"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." - Steve Jobs
I read about him when my dad gave me article about him last year .. Amazing person . He lived a really inspirational life. We all are gonna miss him and his creations .
