In Memory of the Apple Genius: Steve Jobs

In Memory of the Apple Genius: Steve Jobs

Thanks to Steve Jobs for bringing innovation in the computer industry that changed the world. In how we work, how we think, and how we create everything we do from the written word to photo manipulation to basic communication. Of course, others are responsible for the software with which we do these things and deserve their own credit, but for the creatives especially Steve Jobs brought us a system that works the way we think.

I was very late to the Mac world, only joining the club in 2006, but once I did it changed my life and how I do my work. I swear my Macbook is my best friend, probably even before my sweet Kobi in some ways.

About the image: I started with a simple photo of the illuminated logo on my Macbook. I manipulated Jonathan Mak’s* image with Steve Jobs’ profile in the Apple that is going viral. Then I added Pixel Dust textures Impressionist Music and Drops of Jupiter. Quite appropriate I think.

I think we should all write to Apple and request that Jonathan’s original image be the new Apple logo.

I am working on a series of painted old Mac’s … if you are a fan of Apple machinery you know who those two blokes in the image are — if you don’t you probably won’t care anyway.

There are a few more models to come.

ps: I am still looking for a apple monitor from around 1991 — if someone in Melbourne has one standing around catching dust I would love to take it in my trusty hands and say thanks with a little piece of art.

Here Steve Jobs’ best quotes over the year

“I’ll always stay connected with Apple. I hope that throughout my life I’ll sort of have the thread of my life and the thread of Apple weave in and out of each other, like a tapestry. There may be a few years when I’m not there, but I’ll always come back”

Steve Jobs’ best quote on Apple

 

“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me… Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.”

Steve Jobs in The Wall Street Journal, May 25, 1993

“That’s been one of my mantras — focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”

Steve Jobs in BusinessWeek interview, May 1998

“There are downsides to everything; there are unintended consequences to everything. The most corrosive piece of technology that I’ve ever seen is called television – but then, again, television, at its best, is magnificent.”

Steve Jobs quote in 2003

“A lot of times, people don’t know what they want until you show it to them.”

Steve Jobs quote in 1998

“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 … Stay hungry, Stay foolish.”

Steve Jobs gave a speech in his commencement in graduation from Stanforn University in 2005

“When you first start off trying to solve a problem, the first solutions you come up with are very complex, and most people stop there. But if you keep going, and live with the problem and peel more layers of the onion off, you can often times arrive at some very elegant and simple solutions”

Steve Jobs quote in 2006

“Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while.”

Steve Jobs’ view on creativity

“I’m sorry, it’s true. Having children really changes your view on these things. We’re born, we live for a brief instant, and we die. It’s been happening for a long time.”

Steve Job’ quote on life

“My model for business is The Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other’s kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That’s how I see business: great things in business are never done by one person, they’re done by a team of people.”

Steve Job quote on business in the interview with “60 Minutes” in 2003

“We’ve kept our marriage secret for over a decade.”

Jobs talked about the “greatest misunderstanding” in Jobs’ relationship with Bill Gates

“We’re not going to be the first to this party, but we’re going to be the best.”

Jobs shared during Apple event for iPhone OS 4.0, April 8, 2010

“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful — that’s what matters to me.”

“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 other’s 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.”

“I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next.”

“You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down.”

“Quality is more important than quantity. One home run is much better than two doubles.”

“My model for business is the Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other’s kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other, and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That’s how I see business: Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.”

“Do you want to spend the rest of your life selling sugared water or do you want a chance to change the world?”

“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me. Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.”

“Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your owner inner voice.

“Sometimes when you innovate, you make mistakes. It is best to admit them quickly, and get on with improving your other innovations.”

“That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”

“I think we’re having fun. I think our customers really like our products. And we’re always trying to do better.”
