Steve Jobs spoke truth, He will always be an inspiration.

3 days ago we all heard the news, I didn't have much of a recollection of who he was but I knew very well his achievements and how his innovations have made it to my fingertips for the past 5 years or so. 
Recalling making my brave decision to convert back then...
An unforgettable first experience. I returned home and planted myself on the carpet of my studio apartment with my very first mac book. I felt so unsure.. will I be able to handle this.. what am I gonna do without no right click! *nonsense to me now* haha. I remember unravelling it's perfectly green and protective packaging... realizing how neat it was and how much thought was put into it. This is ridiculously AMAZING! A little white manual hidden inside greeted me with a "HELLO" in friendly bold font and as my beautiful new mac keys lit up.. I heard it... "Dwing!!!" Cheerful, ready and powerful! My heart raced in excitement, I've never experienced anything similar switching on an electronic device! Haha It was my window to everything APPLE. I felt confident I was never going to miss windows; this is easy! This laptop is so smart! It's keyboard is so perfect!
At the back of my mind I thought to myself, this is genius!! Mr Jobs inspired and drove these amazing innovations to our door steps... Genius. 

“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.”

Almost everything–all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure–these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.”

“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 other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” 

He's awaken the lazy giant in me. Delectable can always be better.. and I should always move forth.
He has mentioned never to hold on to a good idea and dwell on it too long, ... the next question should be "What next?"
So What next SU!? Enough with just concentrating on making birthday and wedding cakes every weekend. INNOVATE. NOW! *heart races with excitement*

- R.I.P Steve Jobs.

While Steve was inspiring it is funny because I had three Macs in a row and finally switched to an Acer early this year.

I got fed up with all the problems i had on my G5. I was surprised too I thought it would be a great computer.
