Steve Jobs the former CEO of Apple passed away yesterday. My husband is a pretty big geek and changed his career path to be an IOS (apple) developer. We have 3 apple computers in the house, about 5 iphones (they are for testing), 2 ipads, an apple tv, and I am sure I am forgetting something. I remember the day my husband was talking to me about wanting a mini mac (apple's cheapest computer) and I told him he already has a computer but if he wanted it- he had to promise me he was going to make something. It took him about 6 months, but he made something. He made Robotvision, which was one of the first augmented reality application on the app store. It was featured in Tech Crunch, Wall Street Journal and the list goes on.. it also led to some really fun projects like a Paris application with the french government. The app is called Culture Clique and it's an application that gives you all the facts about Paris with all of the historical data and my husband did the augmented reality portion for the app. I am very proud of my husband for following his dreams and doing what he loves. Steve Jobs changed my husband's life and he never met Steve Jobs. Thank you Steve Jobs for inspiring my husband and inspiring me. My favorite speech of his is this Stanford one because he talks about how important it is to lead a life of passion. If you have time and haven't seen it- I promise you it is inspirational.
“Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.” -Steve Jobs
