Tribute:Steve Jobs An Icon And Genius Of The Digital World

Hantu Laut


The icon and genius of the computing world.The man who brought immeasurable changes and affordability to the digital and computing world.He only finished high school, dropped out of college after only one seamester and entered the business world at very young age.

Apple's first commercial.

This is the man who wanted to be a Buddhist monk and ended up being the world's most innovative and respected man in the digital and mass computing world.Came from a lower middle class family of his adoptive parents, Paul and Clara Jobs.Little is known of his biological parents, Joanne Simpson and Abdulfattah Jandali, a political sciences professor from Syria.

His road to success has not been plain sailing.He founded Apple together with co-founder Steve Wozniak.His ingenuity took off with the launching of Apple II and later the Mackintosh.Kicked out of Apple when John Scully took over as CEO.

After being kicked out of Apple, determination and business acumen made him to start NEXT Computers and started Pixer together with Walt Disney that made him very rich.He returned to Apple when Apple bought over NEXT computer.The rest,as they say, is history.

His gadgets now have a cult following, particularly, the iPhone and iPad.

Apple has replaced its web page with full spread of Steve Job's photo.Apple unspoken tribute and obituary of Steve Job here.

Peace be upon him.
