What Steve Jobs Taught Me

October 5, 2011

Looking back, I  used to think of myself as a Commodore guy, then a UNIX guy and then a Windows guy. At some point, I decided I was no longer going to be religious about operating systems and technologies. Steve Jobs helped me realize it isn’t the technology in itself that’s important. The most important thing is the customer experience and no one executed on it better than Steve Jobs and Apple. From Apple products, I learned it’s not just about features, it’s about the value the product creates for the customer. Sometimes less is more. And yes, design and aesthetics count. It’s the total experience that matters.

Lots of times during projects, I’ve used the words, this has to be “insanely great”, borrowing from Steve’s famous Macintosh presentation. He’s given us all something to aspire to. For that, I’m thankful.
This man has been an inspiration to us all. Just like Steve Jobs, live every day to the fullest. Think Different. Change the world. 
To quote Steve Jobs from the original iPhone launch, “Every once in a while a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything.” I think that every once in a long while, a revolutionary person comes along who changes everything.
