It was already a big shock to many when Steve Jobs stepped down as Apple CEO amidst health concerns. Now unfortunately as you may have read everywhere, Steve Jobs has passed away.
I was just about to go to bed after finishing some uni work when I saw some emails about this topic. Sure enough twitter is filled with messages about Steve Jobs, and the unfortunate truth that he is dead.
Although this is a Nokia blog, Steve Jobs more so than any other person or entity has rocked Nokia to the core with his ground breaking iPhone. Regardless that he’s ‘the competition’, he has my utmost respect. He was undoubtedly a brilliant man who has shaped how technology is perceived and used. He was a man all about the product, from conception to delivery and finally marketing. The latter is something we have been in awe of, in particular, his famous reality distortion field and incredible way of changing perception. He made sure that it wasn’t Apple products catering for a need – it was making an audience cater themselves towards Apple products.
Steve Jobs lost his battle against cancer at a relatively young 56 years, but in that time has achieved so much. You just have to read a fraction of his history and the tributes appearing to be amazed.
Can there ever be another brilliant visionary like SJ?
RIP Steve Jobs.
What happens now at Apple? Are they simply just too big and powerful? Or is their success tied to Steve Jobs?
