The life and times of Steve Jobs summarized in an infographic
It’s been almost a week since the tragic news about Steve Jobs’ passing hit us and one thing that’s particularly impressive is the overwhelming response by people all countries regardless of their political or other affiliations. On Twitter, some say the responses reached 2.5 million tweets for 13 hours. Jobs was truly a uniting figure, one that won’t be fully replaced neither by Tim Cook, nor by Phil Schiller or any other single person at Apple.
But Apple’s former chief executive had an adventurous career, full of ups and downs. That’s the exact spirit of Jobs, his legacy, dare being yourself, “staying hungry and foolish.” Jobs was against the narrow minded, the technology solely for the technology kind of thinking.
“I wish him the best, I really do. I just think he and Microsoft are a bit narrow. He'd be a broader guy if he had dropped acid once or gone off to an ashram when he was younger,” Jobs wasn’t afraid to comment on Bill Gates.
That all-around human essence was in the core of Jobs, but it didn’t mean that he was messy. He’d concentrate on a single thing. “And it comes from saying no to 1,000 things to make sure we don't get on the wrong track or try to do too much,” Jobs said for BusinessWeek in 2004. And now the infographic on the right shows you all the details about the iCEO in a neat and simple way.
