RIP 1955 - 2011

What I admire about Steve Jobs the most is that he was an inspirational capitalist.

Jobs shunned an invitation to be part of the hand-wringing, grandstanding wealth apologists that formed The Giving Pledge, founded by Bill Gates and others to persuade the nation’s multimillionaires to give away their fortunes.

Jobs was often criticised by the left for his apparent lack of philanthropy and reluctance to be lured by the silly new-age corporate trend of turning businesses into a social service adjuncts. Thank goodness he didn't deviate.

Jobs singlemindedly devoted all of his energy and time (to the very last) into elevating Apple from a struggling enterprise into a formidable kick-ass company, creating thousands of jobs and changing the lives of millions of people. Not only is Jobs a hero of American capitalism, he is one of the modern-age's greatest contributors to society.
“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” Steve Jobs
