the news on my iPhone...

Cancer takes another life.

It is not discriminatory, it doesn't matter if you are young or old or the girl next door or the greatest visionary of our generation.

As I read the news last night on my iPhone, it made me angry. Why does someone so brilliant have to die at 56?

The answer is cancer.

If only Steve Jobs' brilliance was in the medical research field, maybe there would be a cure.

Besides inventing some pretty awesome stuff, he also had some pretty inspiring things to say:

“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 work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.”

When presenting a new product, he liked to say, "But wait! There's more!"

Not this time.

rest in peace

and thanks for everything
