Steve Jobs: In Loving Memory

1955-2011

Just one day after the new iPhone 4S was released, we are just hearing the news of Steve Jobs’s passing. At just 56, his life was cut short after a long battle with cancer, and he retired just a few weeks back to “focus on his health.” This news comes as a shock to us at AppRecap, as this web site would not be here without his ingenuity, creativity, and limitless imagination. He leaves behind the company he co-founded, tech behemoth Apple. As Steve Jobs said in his speech at the Stanford Commencement Ceremony in 2005:

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.

Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of Steve Jobs in their time of loss.
