Steve Jobs passed away today. I have never met or seen him but strangely enough, it felt like loss of a relative, a neighbor, a friend or a head of state. He was none. There are a few people in my generation who have made as profound impact as he did. His legacy lives in the hands of the people of over 100 countries where IPhone sells and in billions of conversations we have on touch screen phones everyday. I remain astounded by the fact that how can a person make so many right decisions one after one.
Steve has been criticized for advocating the sales of so many electronic devices that inherently are not green. But I think he thought about the environmental damage. His statement at http://www.apple.com/hotnews/agreenerapple/ mentions what he was trying to reduce the footprint of the devices. Apple needs to continue to follow his lead. I have always been a fan of innovation and the word Innovation lost an alphabet today.
