Tomorrow marks two years since Steve Jobs death

Tomorrow marks two years since Steve Jobs death
On October 5, 2011, at around 3pm, Steve Jobs passed away in his home in Palo Alto, Califronia. This means that tomorrow will mark two years since the world lost one of its most iconic and revered technological visionaries.

No information has yet come out as to what kind of service we can expect Apple to carry on, though an internal memo addressed to company employees, has been sent out by CEO Tim Cook and obtained by 9to5Mac. The letter reads:


Last year, Apple honored its deceased co-founder with an official video tribute. You can see it  below.

Hey mate. Check out this article of the NYT about how the first iPhone was developed over the course of 2.5 years and about all the effort Apple and its employees had to put into that device. It really makes the reader aware of why all these copiers don't deserve one's money. http://www.phonearena.com/news/Tomorrow-marks-two-years-since-Steve-Jobs-death_id47985

What did Thomas Edison revolutionized? Light bulbs didn't exist before? Here's a news for you: innovation =/= invention.

Computers, MP3 players, and smartphones didn't exist in the average household before Apple came around. Apple didn't invent any of them, but inventions don't become popular simply by existing. Apple knows how to take technology and make it right for mass appeal. They make something popular, other companies join in and competition drives price down and quality up.

"Computers, MP3 players, and smartphones didn't exist in the average household before Apple came around. " It doesn't call "innovation" or "invention", or "revolutionizing" . It calls - MARKETING. They invented- NOTHING

Even though Apple wasn't the first to have touchscreen phones and tablets and those things aren't really popular in the early days of it, Steve Jobs really changed the ecosystem of both phones and tablets. Apple was revolutionary and I don't know what happened today.

R.I.P. Steve. The company you built had a soul. With you passing away that soul was gone.

RIP. Whether you like Apple or not, we must acknowledge that Jobs had an untimely death and contributed a good amount to the tech industry.

Honestly he had a timely death -- very timely for the tech industry else he would have pissed on every one of them with all the Apple money to satisfy his ego. He is a role model for another troll -- Larry (Genghis Khan) Ellison of Oracle.

As a Christian and not a Apple, Google, Nokia, Samsung or Microsoft fan I respect all human life and I am sadden by a lost of life. I know Steve was not a Christian nor believed in Jesus Christ. I am not call to Judge but to only inform and move on. I am sorry that he is no longer here to be with is wife friends and child. I am never called to Judge a person that is up to God. I can Judge a product (inanimate object) for myself. I loved the iPhone 4 and 4s I believed Steve was very influential in it's design and he was an excellent sales man. But today I am no longer a iPhone user because the current crop of iPhones do not suit my needs. For me the iPhone 5c and 5s are far behind compared to the Android offerings. Nonetheless Steve job was part of the dynamics of an industry and help change that industry to what it is today. We may not have like his methods or him as a individual ( I did not like Bill Gates method of MS ruling the desktop pcs ) but the fact that remains is he propel the industry forward faster then it would have moved if the OG iPhone was not introduce.

One man revolutionised 6 different industries! No doubt that the world is immensely better because of him. Rise In Paradise, Jobs. You'll always be remembered.
