I don’t know if this is the right place to do this, but I think that a great man has abandoned this world.
As this is a place to learn English, I’m going to leave you some links for you to know who this sir was and what he did in his life.
I strongly recommend you to see the following video from 2005 at Stanford University. He was invited to give a commencement speech and his words are now part of history. During his speech he talked about his life and his career and gives us some good advice on how to follow your dreams. He also believed that learning should never be disregarded, as you never know how you can get to use that knowledge.
Today I’ve read many articles about this creator, but this is the one I’ve enjoyed the best. In it, David Pogue (for The New York Times) compares Mr Jobs with Walt Disney or Leonardo da Vinci among others. I don’t know if it might seem exaggerated, but I really think that he was unique and that we can learn a lot from him.
Mashable, a blog about technology has also included several posts about this issue today. Undoubtly this is the most interesting one, where they collect the 13 most inspirational quotes from Steve Jobs. Read them, they are really worth it.
Finally, if you wish to know more things about Steve Jobs, don’t miss what the Wikipedia says about him.
RIP Steve Jobs.

In my opinion, Steve Jobs is a little bit overrated. I don’t think that he was an inventor or he changed the industry. Probably, his best quality was his power to create needes and sell overpriced products. No matter if the specifications wasn’t quite good or you can buy another brand item with simiar or better specifications (and a lower price), everybody LOVES and NEEDS Apple’s items.
Undoubtedly, Jobs is a pioneer about branding. But nowadays, everything is invented. He only mixed up several technologies previosluy developed by another people.
Anyway, RIP Steve Jobs.
Thank you, Besay. As you may imagine, I don’t agree with you. But this space is open to all opinions. Thank you for reading our blog, I hope it’s useful for you.
I think that Steve Jobs is a very special people. When I listened his speech, I felt identified with him about his hard childhood. I was crying a lot during the video.
Steve knew how we should feel our profession. Furthermore, he thought that the different ways which we choose o we meet along our professional life, it can help us in order to achieve the objective set.
The university should begin the class presentation with this speech, because is necessary for all take his advices before looking for them ways in the professional life.
Finally, whatever advice isn´t useful if we don´t reflect about them. Many people prefer gossip this type of reflections before they self criticism to improve like people in their life.
I choose the positive self criticism for me.
