Steve Jobs: Here’s To You
“Steve was among the greatest of American innovators – brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it”~ Barack Obama
This ‘impact’ can be seen in the condolences being expressed in the media: from Barack Obama and Bill Gates, to Mark Zuckerberg and Google’s Eric Schmidt.
It seems that no matter which side of the fence people were on regarding Apple and their business approach all appreciated their neighbour next door.
And rightly so: Whilst many may see Apple as an emerging evil keen to stave off competition, for everyday users they simply made computing easy and fuss free. An approach that has undoubtedly helped shape, inform and spur innovation in other operating systems – including our own.
Here’s to you Mr Jobs – your legacy will be long felt.
