Pendiri Apple Steve Jobs Meninggal Dunia

Jakarta - Kabar mengejutkan datang sehari setelah Apple merilis iPhone 4S. Salah satu pendiri Apple Inc, Steve Jobs, dilaporkan telah meninggal dunia.

Dikutip detikINET dari Washington Post, Kamis (6/10/2011), kabar ini langsung datang dari Apple.

“Kami sangat berduka untuk mengabarkan bahwa Steve Jobs telah meninggal dunia hari ini,” demikian bunyi pengumuman resmi Apple.

Sosok yang bernama lengkap Steven P. Jobs ini merupakan seorang visioner yang disanjung lantaran mampu menghadirkan gadget dan teknologi inovatif melalui Apple.

Beberapa waktu belakangan, Jobs memang sudah meninggalkan kesibukannya di Apple untuk menjalani pengobatan kanker pankreas yang dideritanya.

Namun sepertinya perjuangan sang legenda dunia IT itu harus terhenti setelah menghembuskan nafas terakhirnya pada Rabu waktu Palo Alto, Calif, Amerika Serikat di usia 56 tahun.

Selamat jalan, Jobs…

Pendiri Apple Steve Jobs Meninggal Dunia

Inilah sosok paling inovatif, visioner sekaligus ulet dalam sejarah enterpreneur di Amerika! Sosok seperti ini sulit dicari tandingannya! Gua ikut sedih! Hiiks! :’(

Turut berduka cita sedalam dalamnya.

Manusia mati meninggalkan karya yang dihasilkannya. Steve telah membuktikan, bahwa selama hidupnya dia telah berinovasi sangat mengagumkan. Mulai dari Apple Computer, MAC, IPod, IPhone, hingga IPad, selalu menjadi trendsetter dunia IT.

Selamat jalan sahabat, ditunggu email nya tentang keadaan di sana.

Moga2 Steve Jobs bawa IPhone nya ya bro, biar bisa kabarin kita gimana kondisi disana… Eh, omong2 si Jobs ini percaya Yesus ngga?

Kalau Iphone nya sih kemungkinan dia bawa bro. Tapi pertanyaan anda membuat saya terpikir, iya memang betul namanya Steve, tapi Kristen atau bukan? Coba saya google deh.

Setelah googling sana sini, malah terdampar pada situs ini, dimana Steve Jobs menuliskan ini :

My second story is about love and loss.

I was lucky — I found what I loved to do early in life. Woz and I started Apple in my parents garage when I was 20. We worked hard, and in 10 years Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage into a $2 billion company with over 4000 employees. We had just released our finest creation — the Macintosh — a year earlier, and I had just turned 30. And then I got fired. How can you get fired from a company you started? Well, as Apple grew we hired someone who I thought was very talented to run the company with me, and for the first year or so things went well. But then our visions of the future began to diverge and eventually we had a falling out. When we did, our Board of Directors sided with him. So at 30 I was out. And very publicly out. What had been the focus of my entire adult life was gone, and it was devastating.

I really didn’t know what to do for a few months. I felt that I had let the previous generation of entrepreneurs down - that I had dropped the baton as it was being passed to me. I met with David Packard and Bob Noyce and tried to apologize for screwing up so badly. I was a very public failure, and I even thought about running away from the valley. But something slowly began to dawn on me — I still loved what I did. The turn of events at Apple had not changed that one bit. I had been rejected, but I was still in love. And so I decided to start over.

I didn’t see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. 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.

During the next five years, I started a company named NeXT, another company named Pixar, and fell in love with an amazing woman who would become my wife. Pixar went on to create the worlds first computer animated feature film, Toy Story, and is now the most successful animation studio in the world. In a remarkable turn of events, Apple bought NeXT, I returned to Apple, and the technology we developed at NeXT is at the heart of Apple’s current renaissance. And Laurene and I have a wonderful family together.

I’m pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn’t been fired from Apple. It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.

My third story is about death.

When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: “If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you’ll most certainly be right.” It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: “If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?” And whenever the answer has been “No” for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.

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. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.

About a year ago I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a scan at 7:30 in the morning, and it clearly showed a tumor on my pancreas. I didn’t even know what a pancreas was. The doctors told me this was almost certainly a type of cancer that is incurable, and that I should expect to live no longer than three to six months. My doctor advised me to go home and get my affairs in order, which is doctor’s code for prepare to die. It means to try to tell your kids everything you thought you’d have the next 10 years to tell them in just a few months. It means to make sure everything is buttoned up so that it will be as easy as possible for your family. It means to say your goodbyes.

I lived with that diagnosis all day. Later that evening I had a biopsy, where they stuck an endoscope down my throat, through my stomach and into my intestines, put a needle into my pancreas and got a few cells from the tumor. I was sedated, but my wife, who was there, told me that when they viewed the cells under a microscope the doctors started crying because it turned out to be a very rare form of pancreatic cancer that is curable with surgery. I had the surgery and I’m fine now.

This was the closest I’ve been to facing death, and I hope it’s the closest I get for a few more decades. Having lived through it, I can now say this to you with a bit more certainty than when death was a useful but purely intellectual concept:

No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don’t want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life’s change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.

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.

When I was young, there was an amazing publication called The Whole Earth Catalog, which was one of the bibles of my generation. It was created by a fellow named Stewart Brand not far from here in Menlo Park, and he brought it to life with his poetic touch. This was in the late 1960’s, before personal computers and desktop publishing, so it was all made with typewriters, scissors, and polaroid cameras. It was sort of like Google in paperback form, 35 years before Google came along: it was idealistic, and overflowing with neat tools and great notions.

Stewart and his team put out several issues of The Whole Earth Catalog, and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue. It was the mid-1970s, and I was your age. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous. Beneath it were the words: “Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.” It was their farewell message as they signed off. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you.

Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.

Thank you all very much.

Ok, thanks for the information bro

orang yang sukses berhasil dalam melewati segala kegagalan yang dialami.
orang yg inspiratif,inovatif,kreatif,intelektual…sekilas sejarahnya dia meninggalkan kuliahnya untuk membuat teknologi apple ini bersama temannya,hingga terbangunlah Product Apple.
di masa mudanya sudah menjadi Bilioner man.

Dan hingga sakit menderanya, dia tetap bekerja, baru beberapa bulan terakhir dia mundur dari CEO. Memang contoh luar biasa bagi yang ingin sukses.

emang waktu launching produk baru apple , dia udah kurus banget.

tapi masih semangat buat bicara didepan audience

salut ama semangatnya, walaupun sakit keras, dia gak mau memperlihatkan keorang2 kalau dia itu sakit.

Kita harus mencontoh Steve Jobs. Saya baca di koran, dia habiskan waktu setiap hari 2/3 nya buat kerja. Jadi dia kerja 16 jam sehari! Adalah sudah sewajarnya dia menikmati kesuksesannya saat2 terakhir ini. Terlepas dari dia seorang Buddha.
Pertanyaannya: Berapa jamkah kita kerja setiap harinya? Kalau sekarang keadaan kita masih seperti saat ini, pantaskah kita menyalahkan Tuhan?

wah pantes aja dia sakit2an wong kerjanya 16 jam sehari…

yah balik lg sih bro apa prioriatas kita…kejar uang atau kejar Tuhan?
ada yg uda kerja sampe peras keringat, banting tulang, banting apa lagi dah. kerja dari pagi sampe pagi jg ada tp hasilnya biasa aja…

ini hidup dbawah hukum taurat…

kl hidup dalam kasih karunia itu beda…

Matius 6
(31) Sebab itu janganlah kamu kuatir dan berkata: Apakah yang akan kami makan? Apakah yang akan kami minum? Apakah yang akan kami pakai?(32) Semua itu dicari bangsa-bangsa yang tidak mengenal Allah. Akan tetapi Bapamu yang di sorga tahu, bahwa kamu memerlukan semuanya itu.(33) Tetapi carilah dahulu Kerajaan Allah dan kebenarannya, maka semuanya itu akan ditambahkan kepadamu.

di awali dengan hubungan pribadi dengan Tuhan dan mengandalkan Tuhan dengan sebagai dasar motivasi adalah menyenangkan hati Tuhan bukan mencari keuntungan dan cari kekayaan, lalu bekerja efektif, pergunakan waktu yg ada, di akhiri dengan ucapan syukur apapun hasilnya…

Turut berduka…dunia kehilangan salah seorang terinspiratif di bidang teknologi…

sptnya pada akhirnya bill gates lah yg menang krn dia menikmati hidupnya alias masih hidup walau mgkn penemuannya gak sehebat jobs…hehe

benar saudaraku ^^…
feel lost about steve…

Bill Gates dicurigai terlibat Freemansory/Illuminati. Tapi kalo Steve Jobs kok kayaknya dia gak terlibat organisasi terlarang yah?

ga tau jg deh…kl amrik mah bener2 gak jelas, mereka anggap agama cm hal biasa, bahkan buat kepentingan pribadi sptny kampanye, naekin pamor, dll. dan dari bnyk mereka yg pindah agama krn sayang skali mereka tidak bener2 mencari Tuhan dengan sungguh2…dan lebih mencari kedamaian semu di dunia ini…

Apa Freemansory dan Iliminati itu masih eksis ya? Jangan jangan cuma muncul dalam bentuk science fiction dan thriller aja.

just refresing…
Steve Jobs Arrives In Heaven :
