Today, the world lost one of its most prodigious visionaries.
Steve Jobs was a rare breed of innovator – insightful enough to believe he could change the world and courageous enough to actually do it without sacrificing his integrity.
With the Apple II, he brought personal computing to the masses and at NeXT he proved you couldn’t keep an innovator down. He helped visualize our dreams as the head of Pixar, and over the past decade, redefined how each of us interacts with technology and the world around us.
His legacy won’t be embodied by the sprawling campus he leaves behind or the impact he’s had on millions of lives around the world; it’s the seed of innovation that’s been planted in everyone who’s ever held an Apple product or heard Steve Jobs speak.
Everyone at Mobclix would like to extend its condolences and best wishes to Steve Job’s family, friends, and colleagues and we remain optimistic that Job’s insatiable hunger for innovation will continue to impact our lives through means not yet seen and for generations to come.

“We met Steve Jobs on a couple of occasions, but we’ll never forget a chance encounter at Fraiche in Palo Alto. We were gobsmacked when we walked in and saw him just hanging out, enjoying some froyo, reading a newspaper. Mobclix was only a few months old at this point, but he knew exactly who we were and was surreally convivial.
A few minutes with Steve Jobs and you begin to realize the consequences of pursuing your passion – a lifelong pursuit of excellence and at-one-with-your-self-ness.” – Sunil and Vishal
“His well-measured words carried the weight of his ingenuity. As a CEO, he was unrivaled in his approach and unwavering in his commitment to his principles. I don’t know a single person that hasn’t used a Steve Jobs’ quote in a memo or presentation, and I think that’s a testament to how true he remained to his own beliefs.” – Sumit
“As a designer – less was more. As a business leader – simplicity was elegance. As a pioneer – passion was paramount. The world will seldom see a creative genius like Steve Jobs, and I can genuinely say that I’m thankful to have experienced his genius first-hand.” – Krishna
