"We're not going to be the first to this party,
but we're going to be the best." --Steve Jobs

The recent smashing success of Apple Inc. holds true to the proclamation Steve Jobs made so many years ago.

The demand for the iPhone has been mothing short of remarkably sensational and Apple continues to be the very best at the party under Chief Executive Tim Cook.

Apple CEO said recently the company sold 74.5 million iPhones in the quarter; this is an astounding number when you consider, we are talking about a quarter, not a year, a quarter!

74.5 million iPhones sold in one quarter it is very difficult to comprehend the total number of iPhones sold, let's do a break down of the numbers shall we?

Apple sold 34,000 iPhones everyday, everyhour, around the clock. Mr. Tim Cook, CEO, said
Apple posted net of $18.0 billon for it's fiscal quarter. These are gargantuan results soared beyond all expectations.

We begin to realize what a great American visionary was all over again. Steve Jobs is sorely missed, yet he continues to give us
purposeful, sexy, cutting edge gadgets which
continue to be irresisitable.

In a 1990's Apple advertising campaign, Steve Jobs used a black and white photo of Mahatma Gandhi and at the top of the picture there was
a bitten apple and below the apple there were two words:

"THINK DIFFERENT"

Steve Jobs occupied a very special place in the heart of the business community. He was selected as "CEO of the Decade" by Fortune Magazine,
the "World's best performing CEO" by the Harvard Business Review, and "Person of the Decade"
by The Wall Street Journal.

On October 5th 2011 one day after Apple's new CEO Tim Cook held his frist press conference to announce the iPhone 4G's, Apple's board stated that Steve Jobs at age 56 had died.

I always loved the way Steve Jobs ended a press conference or address, he always said the following:

"And one more thing..."
--Steve Jobs
