    Not directly Tesla-related, but I do believe Elon is modeling Tesla after Apple, so it's sad to see the visionary go.

    I believe it's Tesla related.

    Think Different.

    Steve Jobs: "The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle."

    Bummer. I was in college when the Apple II came out.

    Rest in Peace, Steve. Thank you for your innovative vision for the future, and for providing inspiration for a little car company named Tesla.

    Moment of silence in the office today that stretched out ... many of us had met him personally at one time or another in our careers. We've lost a visionary and I fully expect him to get the afterlife redesigned for us in an unexpected way.

    The Apple ][+ was the first computer I got to play with, the //c was the first one I bought and the //e was the second. Steve was a visionary and a leader in the best sense.

    Steve Jobs quotes that Tesla Motors lives by:

    "I want to put a ding in the universe"
    "My job is not to be easy on people. My job is to make them better"
    "Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower"
    "We don't get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life"
    "Quality is more important than quantity."
    "One home run is much better than two doubles"
    "I'm convinced that about half of what separates the successfully entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance"

    If that does not sum up Elon, nothing does.
