Accolades – Steve Jobs !!

November 8, 2011

Steve Jobs, Apple co-founder, has passed away

Industry’s reaction towards the passing of Steve Jobs

He was born in the Silicon Valley, and made a personal computer in his family’s garage, and passed away as a superstar of Silicon Valley. But Steve Jobs isn’t just about that. He found Apple together with his friend Steve Wozniak, founded NeXT Computer after being fired from Apple, bought up Pixar and gave us ‘Toy Story’ which I’m sure everyone knows. His life isn’t just about the iPhone, iPad, and Mac. He’s also made many friends, and here’s what they have to say about his departure.

“We’ve lost something we won’t get back. The way I see it, though, the way people love products (that) he put so much into creating means he brought a lot of life to the world.”

– Steve Wozniak

“The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come. For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely.”

— Bill Gates

“From the earliest days of Google, whenever Larry and I sought inspiration for vision and leadership, we needed to look no farther than Cupertino. Steve, your passion for excellence is felt by anyone who has ever touched an Apple product (including the macbook I am writing this on right now). And I have witnessed it in person the few times we have met. On behalf of all of us at Google and more broadly in technology, you will be missed very much. My condolences to family, friends, and colleagues at Apple.”

— Sergey Brin

“I am very, very sad to hear the news about Steve. He was a great man with incredible achievements and amazing brilliance. He always seemed to be able to say in very few words what you actually should have been thinking before you thought it. His focus on the user experience above all else has always been an inspiration to me. He was very kind to reach out to me as I became CEO of Google and spend time offering his advice and knowledge even though he was not at all well. My thoughts are with his family and the whole Apple family.”

— Larry Page

“Steve, thank you for being a mentor and a friend. Thanks for showing that what you build can change the world. I will miss you.”

— Mark Zuckerberg

“He was dubbed a megalomaniac, but Steve Jobs often gambled on young, largely inexperienced talent to take Apple forward; Jony Ive and his team prove that such faith was spot on.”

— Sir James Dyson, innovator and entrepreneur

“I got one of the first Macs, and my relationship with computers fundamentally changed. In both of his incarnations at Apple, he was a visionary. He provided tools. His victories were based on imagination and courage.”

— Roger Ebert, Pulitzer-prize winning film critic

“No words can adequately express our sadness at Steve’s death or our gratitude for the opportunity to work with him. We will honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to continuing the work he loved so much.”

— Tim Cook, CEO of Apple

“Tonight our City — a city that has always had such respect and admiration for creative genius — joins with people around the planet in remembering a great man and keeping Laurene and the rest of the Jobs family in our thoughts and prayers.”

— Michael Bloomberg, Mayor of New York City

“Steve Jobs was an extraordinary visionary, our very dear friend and the guiding light of the Pixar family. He saw the potential of what Pixar could be before the rest of us, and beyond what anyone ever imagined. Steve took a chance on us and believed in our crazy dream of making computer animated films; the one thing he always said was to simply ‘make it great.’ He is why Pixar turned out the way we did and his strength, integrity and love of life has made us all better people. He will forever be a part of Pixar’s DNA. Our hearts go out to his wife Laurene and their children during this incredibly difficult time.”

— John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer, and Ed Catmull, President, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios

“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. Michelle and I send our thoughts and prayers to Steve’s wife Laurene, his family, and all those who loved him.”

— President Barack Obama

“Steve Jobs was an iconic entrepreneur and businessman whose impact on technology was felt beyond Silicon Valley. He will be remembered for the innovation he brought to market and the inspiration he brought to the world.”

— Meg Whitman, President and CEO, HP

“Steve was my hero growing up. He not only gave me a lot of personal advice and encouragement, he showed all of us how innovation can change lives.I will miss him dearly, as will the world.”

— Jerry Yang

“Steve was such an ‘original,’ with a thoroughly creative, imaginative mind that defined an era. Despite all he accomplished, it feels like he was just getting started. With his passing the world has lost a rare original, Disney has lost a member of our family, and I have lost a great friend.”

— Bob Iger, CEO of Disney

“I want to express my deepest condolences at the passing of Steve Jobs, one of the founders of our industry and a true visionary. My heart goes out to his family, everyone at Apple and everyone who has been touched by his work.”

— Steve Ballmer

How to Switch to Yahoo Mail Classic from the New Yahoo Beta Mail ?

March 25, 2011

The Simplest one is mentioned here but Please read the comments below the post- lot of ways have been mentioned to switch back to Yahoo Mail Classic !  

Steps :

1) Disable Java Script in your Browser !

2) Open Yahoo Mail ! ; It will say something like “Javascript not enables, do you want to Switch Back to Yahoo Mail Classic” or something like that !

3) GO Ahead and do that !

4) (optional) Enable Java Script !

Enjoy the Yahoo Mail Classic ! 🙂

PS : After enabling Java Script, if at a later stage, if the New Yahoo Mail shows up, don’ worry Just repeat the above process ! I personally had to do it 10 – 15 times and after which the New Yahoo Mail never showed up !

This technique mentioned below does not work anymore !

Yahoo has now introduced yet another Mail beta which is largely better that the previous. But, in case you want to switch back Mail Classic – the procedure is a little different now. Earlier, there was an option below the Yahoo Mail Beta Icon, “Switch to Mail Classic. But now this has moved to Help Menu at the top left. Click on the drop down to find an option called “Return to Original Mail“. The snapshot below will help you understand things better.
