Steve Jobs Dies at 56: 1955-2011

2011 was a good year for Apple. They launched a few new products and became the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer. But at the same time, Steve Jobs was having a rough 2011 in terms of his health. He was not regular to Apple from January and recently, he stepped down from the post of Chief Executive Officer(CEO) of Apple, naming Tim Cook as the new one because of his health.

On 5th October 2011, Wednesday, just one day after the launch of Apple iPhone 4S, Steve Jobs died in Palo Alto in California. When he died he was surrounded by his wife and family.

Apple announced the death of Steve Jobs raising silence and sadness in the world. Apple changed their homepage, giving tribute to Steve Jobs. The co-founder of Apple, who gave you iPhone, iPad, iPod has finally ended his life. Here is a famous quote from the man.

“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because 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. … Stay hungry. Stay foolish”

Steve Jobs was the co-founder of Apple with Steve Wozniak. They founded the company in 1974. They invented a few PCs which gave success to Apple. In 1985, he was fired from the company. Apple witness a fall in their numbers and in 1997, he was brought back. Later that year, he was made the CEO of Apple. The launch of iPhone in 2007, gave the company a real boost and Steve Jobs never looked behind after that. Success never stopped for Apple but Steve Jobs was having some problems with his health. On 17th January 2011, he gave a leave because of his bad health condition. On 24th August 2011, he retired as CEO of Apple and finally on 5th October 2011, he died due to his health.

Sadness may not stop for days. Steve Jobs was a man who revolutionized the tech world. For me, since I came to know about the tech world, iPhone or any Apple gadget has been a dream for me. Even though, I haven’t got one yet, I will very soon get it.

Do you remember the fall Apple experienced when Steve Jobs retired as the CEO of the company in August? The fall was pretty small. But after the death of Steve Jobs, what will happen to the incredible creation of his? Who knows…

Rest In Peace Steve Jobs

ColorWare: Custom Paint for iPad 2, iPhone 4 and More

There are many websites out there that say that they’ll modify your mobile device and make it look unique, but not all of them do a good job. To help all those people customize their mobile device, specially the very delicate Apple iPhone 4 and the iPad 2, ColorWare has come out with a custom paint job service that will really make you happy. I’m not saying that because I’ve used their service, but many people have and the come has even been featured on Engadget and few other websites.

ColorWare

ColorWare, the website, has a very easy to set-up interface wherein you can right away choose the colors you want you iPhone 4 or iPad 2 to be painted and then hit order. The combinations are really good and really give that unique feel to your Apple product. If you’re tired of that same old boring White or Black look, then go ahead and try out ColorWare.

I must however tell you that the variety of products that ColorWare will do a custom paint job on is huge. There are iPads, iPhone 4’s, MacBook Pro, Air, iMac’s, Alienware’s, few BlackBerry Phones and more. So do check them out if you want a unique looking Apple device or BlackBerry or an Alienware laptop.

ColorWare Custom Paint

After looking at the above pictures of the MacBook Air, the Alienware M15x, iPad 2 and the iPhone 4 most of you must have already started customizing your device, ordered and then seen the pricing. Yes, the pricing is pretty high, which you’ll realize once you choose what colors to paint your beloved iPhone 4 or MacBook Pro. You can also buy some products directly from ColorWare, instead of you sending your device for a new coat of paint.
