Wow. Steve Jobs just resigned as Apple’s CEO. Biggest news of the day, by far. That earthquake on the East Coast yesterday? This is an earthquake for the West Coast. Tim Cook becomes Apple’s new CEO while Jobs transitions his role as Chairman of Apple’s Board.
The WSJ has a nice list of the best Steve Jobs quotes over the years, such as this one:
These technologies can make life easier, can let us touch people we might not otherwise. You may have a child with a birth defect and be able to get in touch with other parents and support groups, get medical information, the latest experimental drugs. These things can profoundly influence life. I’m not downplaying that.
But it’s a disservice to constantly put things in this radical new light — that it’s going to change everything. Things don’t have to change the world to be important.
And oh, this is my favourite Steve Jobs video. A must-watch, if you’ve never seen it.
Apple at the core…Its core value is that we believe that people with passion can change the world for the better. That’s what we believe.
