"One last thing ...thank you, Steve Jobs"

It is so hard, but this is from the heart.

One of my heroes, a genuine American genius has passed away this evening. I am referring to  Steve  Jobs,  who created so much of the technology and innovation that we enjoy and use everyday in our lives.

It was thanks to Steve, that I was able to write my book,  "Right on the Money".  It was thanks to Steve, and the technologies he created and championed, that I was able to make the successful  transition to the digital world.

I'm not sure why I feel so sad, I never met Steve personally, but I felt, I knew him through the technologies he created.  I'm not sure why, surrounded by my iPhone, iPad2 and my MacBook Pro,  all of which  are basically hardware and software, that I miss the heartbeat of Apple. Unless you are an Apple fan, you will not have the same feeling, I have this evening. Thanks to Steve, I feel a connection through the technology he created and believed in.

I feel an enormous loss and void this evening, but I'm not sure how I can explain that to you in words. I was not related to Steve, nor as I said earlier, did I know him personally.  None the less there is a profound sense of loss and sadness that I feel  for Steve and his family,  and the technology world.  Steve passed away at the top of his game, but too early.

I'm sure they're going to be a lot more eloquent tributes to Steve, but this one's from the heart. Thank you Steve, for all that you gave the world. You were the equivalent of a Einstein or a Henry Ford in my mind.  You were a true American maverick, and I will miss,  and forever treasure the technology you created and shared with the rest of the world.

As Steve would say, "One last thing ..."

Thank you,

  1. My heart goes out to his freinds and family.Thanks for making the world a better place through your inovations.

  2. While it is of deep regret a person like Steve Jobs had to succumb to such a horrifying disease, his genius, innovation and daily passion to touch people will not be forgotten. Most analysts and market gurus thought Tim Cook's introduction of the new iPhone Tuesday was bland. But, I feel Mr Cook took the low road in honor of Steve Jobs, knowing his ultimate end was near. My hat is off to Mr Cook.

  3. Steve Jobs was exactly what America needs more of: innovation, passion, work ethic, and a capacity to change the world.

    He will be deeply, deeply missed by a country looking to re-establish itself in the world. At 56-years-old, he was just getting started. Hopefully America can absorb the lessons of his short, and incredibly impactful, life.

    RIP Steve.

  4. RIP Steve Jobs. He will truly be missed. Thank you for your kind words.

    How do you think AAPL will perform over the coming weeks? It looked a bit overbought and was starting to retract...do you think AAPL will fall with the news of Jobs' death, or do you think people will still hold with the IPhone-5 on the horizon?

  5. Adam, I agree with you about those 3x and 2 x's etfs. Traders need to be very savvy about using those. They are mainly day trade instruments and can get whacked on contago/backwawrdation issues in the Commodity sectors. As well, they have decay issues when they rebalance...so I hope traders do just that...trade'em not hold'em!

  6. Adam, Lovely Obituary. I think we all feel the same.

    Susan, thank you for taking my question on the TV show today. I am a subscriber and really appreciate knowing when ASX is up and running! You and Adam run a great programme! Shannon
