About Steve Jobs

In Memory of Steve Jobs

The late Steve Jobs may have been known for his signature black turtleneck, but it is for his green diet that he probably will be most fondly remembered by peoplewho care about animals. The Apple cofounder, who died yesterday, was a vegetarian and a longtime health advocate who reportedly once handed out containers of carrot juice at Halloween.

We remember Jobs for so many innovative ideas, including Apple's iPhoto facial recognition software, which recognizes the faces of cats in addition to those of humans, reflecting the importance of companion animals in our homes and hearts. PETA also recently recognized Jobs for what he didn't do: He refused to sell a gruesome app on Apple's app store called iSealClub—which involved, as the name suggests, bashing cartoon seals over the head with clubs.

Let's also not forget that Jobs' Pixar film studio created heartwarming and thought-provoking movies about unlikely animal heroes, such as A Bug's Life and Finding Nemo, and he ended Disney's 10-year agreement with McDonald's to promote its films with movie-themed toys in Happy Meals after the entertainment giant merged with Pixar. As the vegetarian sharks in Finding Nemo said, "Fish are friends, not food." Finding Nemo's fish-friendly theme earned Pixar an award from PETA, as did Jobs' other accomplishments that helped change animals' lives for the better. And if his movies or his lifestyle inspired even one person to become a vegetarian, he no doubt saved hundreds of animals' lives, and for that we thank him.

Steve Jobs- are true inspiration to generations to come. To have such positive role models in today's society who are vegetarian is do important. A medical colleague of mine said today that the cancer that took Steve from his family normally is fatal within 5 months of diagnosis- Steve was 7 years post diagnosis. He believed this was down to his healthy eating and positive thinking!! Sleep in peace Steve!

We will remember you Steve, for your great mind and your kind heart. I find it unfair that we lost you so early. You would have accomplish so many other great things if you lived a little longer.

As a business student, I have learned much about your creative genius and smart business skills. There has not been one class where we haven't discussed your success. Even as a child almost 20 yrs ago, my first computer experience was on a Macintosh.
In addition to your ideas and innovation; you were a truly great person. Your spiritual wisdom and environmentally and animal friendly lifestyle are an inspiration to us all.
The world is missing one of it's best. May you rest in peace.

Dear Steve, i'm not a big Apple fan. But when i knew that you were a vegetarian, someone who cares beyond monetary gains, i'm bowled over by you.
R.I.P and May God bless your soul.
