Steve Jobs…


不想写什么长篇大论,不知道此人的生活和工作如何让人八卦不休,单凭Stanford Commencement Speech就让我有点醍醐灌顶的感受,贴出一部分,想着某年在福州大利嘉城看到iMac一体机的时候无比惊叹其外观设计,到入手itouch才发现这是个多么牛逼的玩意,和Jack,Piemeng聊到Apple的设计过人之处确实有着超前的思维,比如移动设备从来都没有替换电池一说 -。-||| 再比如macbook的磁性电源接口,确实都是出人意料但是又非常精妙的细节设计,由此可见产品设计的不同寻常。

说什么都是枉然,大神已去,自己的生活也确实没有因为他的产品而改变良多,只是让自己开了眼界,见识到了除了NOKIA,HTC之外的美丽,确实是一种美丽……

斯坦福的演讲无外乎被提上了励志的标签,其实更多的是一种人生的态度……

This was the closest I’ve been to facing death, and I hope it’s the closest I get for a few more decades. Having lived through it, I can now say this to you with a bit more certainty than when death was a useful but purely intellectual concept. No one wants to die, even people who want to go to Heaven don’t want to die to get there, and yet, death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because death is very likely the single best invention of life. It’s life’s change agent; it clears out the old to make way for the new. right now, the new is you. But someday, not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it’s quite true. Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice, heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

When I was young, there was an amazing publication called The Whole Earth Catalogue, which was one of the bibles of my generation. It was created by a fellow named Stuart Brand not far from here in Menlo Park, and he brought it to life with his poetic touch. This was in the late Sixties, before personal computers and desktop publishing, so it was all made with typewriters, scissors, and Polaroid cameras. it was sort of like Google in paperback form thirty-five years before Google came along. I was idealistic, overflowing with neat tools and great notions. Stuart and his team put out several issues of the The Whole Earth Catalogue, and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue. It was the mid-Seventies and I was your age. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous. Beneath were the words, “Stay hungry, stay foolish.” It was their farewell message as they signed off. “Stay hungry, stay foolish.” And I have always wished that for myself, and now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you. Stay hungry, stay foolish
