They say he is dead. It is sad. I don’t believe it since he will live for centuries. Every time someone uses an Apple product they will remember him.
Everyday when I wakeup in the morning the first thing I do is pick up my iPod: check my Facebook, newspapers. Everyday I think Apple has made life so much easier, after all I am connected to the whole world from my bed. When I say Apple, indirectly I am talking about Steven Jobs.
Steven P. Jobs, co-founder of Apple Inc. and the mastermind behind all Apple products, died yesterday. On Apple’s website it said, “Apple has lost a visionary and creative genius, and the world has lost an amazing human being.”
According to the British newspaper The Guardian Jobs stepped down in August as chief executive officer of the company. At that time he wrote in a letter, “I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple’s CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.”
In August, everyone wondered, “What will happen to Apple after Jobs?”
I don’t know but Apple has changed the world. All of its products are magical. People walk around with the whole world in their pocket via an iPhone or iPod.
If I could waken someone from the 18th century and show him or her one of Apple’s products and explain how it works, it might shock them to death again.
Everyone knows how amazing Apple’s products are and the credit goes to Jobs.
He was born in 1955 in San Francisco to Syrian Muslim parents but he was adopted and raised by Paul and Clara Jobs.
He founded his company in 1976 with his friend Steve Wozniak and led it to become one of the world’s best companies introducing the Macintosh, iPod, iPhone and then iPad. The new entrepreneur was a 21-year-old college dropout.
An Arabic newspaper observes that “three apples changed the world: Adam’s apple, Newton’s apple and then Jobs’ Apple.”
Thank you, thank you Jobs, for this Apple. You will never be forgotten.
