The movie is quite promising, can’t wait till August 16 when it’ll be released. By then, you will understand why I regarded Steve Jobs as one of the most important humans ever. Check the trailer

“Excerpts from President Barack Obama’s statement:
Steve was among the greatest of American innovators – brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it. By building one of the planet’s most successful companies from his garage, he exemplified the spirit of American ingenuity. By making computers personal and putting the internet in our pockets, he made the information revolution not only accessible, but intuitive and fun. And by turning his talents to storytelling, he has brought joy to millions of children and grownups alike. Steve was fond of saying that he lived every day like it was his last. Because he did, he transformed our lives, redefined entire industries, and achieved one of the rarest feats in human history: he changed the way each of us sees the world.
Bill Gates released a statement saying:
I’m truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs’ death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work. Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives. The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come. For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely.
Walt Disney Company president Bob Iger said in regards to Jobs:
Steve Jobs was a great friend as well as a trusted advisor. His legacy will extend far beyond the products he created or the businesses he built. It will be the millions of people he inspired, the lives he changed, and the culture he defined. Steve was such an “original,” with a thoroughly creative, imaginative mind that defined an era. Despite all he accomplished, it feels like he was just getting started. With his passing the world has lost a rare original, Disney has lost a member of our family, and I have lost a great friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Laurene and his children during this difficult time.
Mark Zuckerberg wrote on his Facebook page:
Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you.
American director Steven Spielberg said: “Steve Jobs was the greatest inventor since Thomas Edison. He put the world at our fingertips.”
Microsoft Co-founder Paul Allen said: “We’ve lost a unique tech pioneer and auteur who knew how to make amazingly great products. Steve fought a long battle against tough odds in a very brave way. He kept doing amazing things in the face of all that adversity. As someone who has had his own medical challenges, I couldn’t help but be encouraged by how he persevered.”
Apple Co-founder Steve Wozniak said : “People sometimes have goals in life. Steve Jobs exceeded every goal he set himself.””
Correre contro i sensi di colpa spremendo maniglie dell’amore, alla ricerca della costanza, col personal trainer che ti gasa. Vediamo dove si può arrivare, cerchiamo di essere costanti. I primi 50km sono andati. Ancora si rotola e rimbalza, presto si comincia a correre!
Riding guilt holding steady onto love handles, looking for pace, with a cheering electronic personal trainer. Let’s see where to from here. The first 50 km are gone. It’s still a rolling and tumbling affair, but soon it’ll be about running!

“Apple – you guys were the rebels, man, the underdogs. People believed in you. But now, are you becoming the man? Remember back in 1984, you had those awesome ads about overthrowing Big Brother? Look in the mirror, man! …It wasn’t supposed to be this way – Microsoft was supposed to be the evil one! But you guys are busting down doors in Palo Alto while Commandant Gates is ridding the world of mosquitoes! What the fuck is going on?!
…I know that it is slightly agitating that a blog dedicated to technology published all that stuff about your new phone. And you didn’t order the police to bust down the doors, right? I’d be pissed too, but you didn’t have to go all Minority Report on his ass! I mean, if you wanna break down someone’s door, why don’t you start with AT&T, for God sakes? They make your amazing phone unusable as a phone! I mean, seriously! How do you drop four calls in a one-mile stretch of the West Side Highway! There’re no buildings around! What, does the open space confuse AT&T’s signal?!
…Come on, Steve. Chill out with the paranoid corporate genius stuff. Don’t go all Howard Hughes on us.”

“Apple – ragazzi eravate i ribelli, cazzo, i cospiratori. La gente ha creduto in voi. Ma ora, state diventando “l’uomo”, i pedanti, i dittatori? Ricordate nel 1984, gli ads impressionanti contro il Grande Fratello? Guardatevi allo specchio adesso!! Non doveva finire in questo modo – Microsoft avrebbe dovuto rappresentare il male! Voi ragazzi sfondavate le porte a Palo Alto, mentre il comandante Gates libera il mondo dalle zanzare! Ma che cazzo sta succedendo?!
… So che è un po preoccupante che un blog dedicato alla tecnologia pubblichi tutte quelle cose sul vostro nuovo telefono cellulare. E non avete ordinato alla polizia di sfondare la porta, giusto? Sarei incazzato anch’io, ma non era il caso di fare come Minority Report contro Jason Chen! Voglio dire, se proprio volete sfondare la porta di qualcuno, perché non iniziare con AT & T, per l’amor di Dio? Rendono il vostro stupefacente telefono inutilizzabile come telefono! Dai, sul serio! Come si fa a perdere quattro chiamate in un tratto di un chilometro e mezzo sulla West Side Highway! Non ci sono senza edifici intorno! Lo spazio aperto confonde il segnale di AT & T?!
… Dai, Steve. Smettila con la roba da paranoico genio aziendale. Non fare l’Howard Hughes su di noi. “
