World has lost a visionary: Obama on Steve Jobs
Washington: Saddened to learn about the death
of Steve Jobs, former Apple CEO, US President Barack Obama
said the world has lost a visionary, who was among the
greatest American innovators.
"The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no
greater tribute to Steve`s success than the fact that much of
the world learned of his passing on a device he invented,"
Obama said in a statement after the death of Jobs.
"Michelle and I are saddened to learn of the passing of
Steve Jobs. Steve was among the greatest of American
innovators - brave enough to think differently, bold enough to
believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do
it," Obama said.
By building one of the planet’s most successful companies
from his garage, he exemplified the spirit of American
ingenuity, Obama said.
"By making computers personal and putting the internet in
our pockets, he made the information revolution not only
accessible, but intuitive and fun," the US President said,
adding and by turning his talents to storytelling, he has
brought joy to millions of children and grownups alike.
"Steve was fond of saying that he lived every day like it
was his last. Because he did, he transformed our lives,
redefined entire industries, and achieved one of the rarest
feats in human history: he changed the way each of us sees the
world," Obama said.
