Apple fans step up in Russia unveiling interactive iPhone 5-shaped memorial to Steve Jobs
2013 will go down as the year that Apple did its best to steal coverage from CES (although the company does try to sneak in some rumors every year.) We've already had the saga of the "cheap iPhone", which won't go away, and now the Apple faithful are joining in to help by unveiling an interactive iPhone 5-shaped memorial to Steve Jobs in St. Petersburg, Russia. There are plenty around the world that consider themselves Apple fans, but this takes it up a notch. 

The memorial is 6 feet tall, and has a screen on the front which shows photos and videos of key moments in Jobs' life with text descriptions translated into multiple languages. The rear of the memorial doesn't have the iconic Apple logo, instead it has a QR code which will bring visitors to a website dedicated to the life of Jobs. 

The design was chosen from 200 submissions. The winning design comes from St. Petersburg native Gleb Tarasov, whose design was named 'Sunny QR Code'.

Agreed. I guess we should ask his daughter Lisa if he deserves a monument. After denying a paternity test and taking 8 years to meet her for the first time.... This guy was a complete D*Bag to the core and it sickens me to see people worship him this way.

Many great men had a dark sides, that doesn't take away from their accomplishments. MLK was a womanizer, but that doesn't take away what he did for civil rights. Einstein cheated on his wife, and left his son to die in a mental hospital, never seeing him for the last 30 years of his life, but that doesn't change what he did for physics. Jobs was an ass to employees, and a jerk to Lisa for a long time, but he still did amazing things for tech.

How f*cking DARE you compare a sleazy salesman who stole the idea to make an overpriced touchscreen phone to one of the greatest and most inluential men this country has seen. Yeah, a salesman is totally on the same level as the leader of the civil rights movement.

Anyway, that still does not mean he deserves the adolation, idolization, and cult like following that he has. He was a salesman and a businessman, and he's dead now. End of story.

WOW Mike, just...WOW. You compare steve "f*ck you" jobs to MLK Jr (you missed that) and Albert Einstein, two of the greatest men America has ever produced. You uh, you DO realize those two actually made a meaningful impact right? You DO realize they actually changed society for the better right? Jobs invented the ipod and stole the iphone concept, yeah TOTALLY on par with MLK and Einstein.

That sh*t^^^^ right there^^^^ is why you are called out as being an apple fanboy and a biased journalist.

Gotta agree with Billy, how dare you.

How offensive! Is there a way to report the article writers, because I find what mr H just said to be beyond offensive and disgusting.
To compare a businessman (any businessperson, I don't care how successful they were) to the man who helped unify this nation and get non whites the same treatment and rights as everyone else is profane, offensive, and mildly racist.
To compare a businessman to one of the greatest minds this planet has ever seen is offensive and reeks of fanboyism and just plain poor journalism.

You should be fired for this.

You guys totally missed the point. He wasn't comparing Jobs as an equal (didn't MLK Jr point out all men are equal btw?) he was just showing that no one is perfect. You guys ignored that part of it and just drilled into the him saying Steve jobs and totally missed what he was trying to say. You lost all sense of objectivity just so you could throw a hissy-fit in the comment section.

No. You do not compare a salesman to the leader of the civil rights movement and one of the the greatest minds of our time.
An appropriaqte comparison would've been to Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak, RIM CEO (drawing a blank on his name), Kaz Hirai etc. Fellow businessman and salespeople. I'm sure they have their flaws, but none of them are in the same league as MLK or Einstein, and neither was jobs.

Not saying Jobs is in the same league as those guys, they were just the first examples for great men with dark sides that popped into my head. Gates and Woz had similar impacts on tech to Jobs, but neither had the dark side, as far as I know.

Jobs' accomplishments are certainly on a lower tier than MLK or Einstein, but he was more than just a "sleazy salesman".

He had a profound impact on PCs, digital media, computer animation, and mobile devices. Whether or not you like Apple products, you should be able to admit that Apple products have changed markets, and a lot of that is attributable, even in part, to Steve Jobs.

That doesn't dismiss the way he was related to factories in China, or mining operations in Africa, his treatment of employees, or his family. But, his shortcomings also don't dismiss the good things he did either.

You guys can hate all you want, but I'd rather see the whole picture, and not just focus on the good or the bad that supports a bias.
