  1. Hello steve jobs, I read ur article. Made me to cry. The three stories u said at standford. Each and evry word I loved it. Ur the person with whom I spend time will see the drastic change in me. But ur too far from me and I wish a person like you near bye. What to do, though optimistic and always wish to dont settle down. Its in my nature, I never get satisfied. Feel like everyone should ask me, how do to this and how to do that…very aggressive. Oops this is vasudev deshpande working as a testing engineer in INDIA. Nixce to read ur article, which inspires me alot. Hope one day would meet you….u plz take care. Follow indian auyervedic dont go for allopathic as it may cause side effects..take care and love you for ur innovation and everything…

  2. Hi Steve!
    I am an ardent fan of yours and it’s not bcoz I am an engineering geek or so,but bcoz I like your visions.Your ability to see things that everyone else has seen but never thought of. The never say die attitude that defines you and the guts to stay away from the herd.I’ve closely followed your life & times .Be it the “APPLE COMP”, the “NEXT COMP” the “PIXAR LABS” or the “INDIA VISIT”.Everything there is so motivating. I’ve even lectured on ” Apple culture” to my classmates here in India as a part of our academic course.

    It’s not just your products that are unique but also the ads that introduce them. I liked the immense creative appeal of the ” 1984″ ad. The other day I was just thinking on one of your ads when this idea suddendy ran across my mind. It deals with the way I feel apple shapes our life and I guess with a little change it can convey the required message as an ad.

    “It’s the EDEN GARDEN” where ADAM tries out to reach for the forbidden fruit (definitely apple) and embraces the lovely reality of being human. It’s then that a message flashes across the screen.—- “APPLE MADE YOU HUMAN , AND THE TRADITION STAYS “. I guess it’ll be awesome.

    I just wanted to suggest an idea bcoz I admire you a lot. I feel you are one of the very few people who are more gigantic than the organisations they have built.I’ll be happy if you someday write a book on your ideas and values.I’ll love it.

    Thanks a lot for inspiring millions of students like me. Take care. You require a greater concern for your health after that surgery.If someday you find time ,do come to India. There are lot’s of places here which’ll inspire you both intellectually and spiritually.You know that well. BYe and take care.

    Lots of love to everybody in the Apple family…………
