We’ve all shared the news. Steve Jobs had left a legacy that perhaps no one can match. I still remember my Apple ][ — with high-resolution color graphics and 64KB memory, no hard disk, but boot from 5.25″ floppy — very “modern” in 1980!
To appreciate the achievements of Steve Jobs, you have to understand his philosophy. We can get a lot of inspiration from Wikipedia:
Last year, Steve Jobs was named “Person of the Year for 2010” by the Financial Times. The article ends with this story from the Apple CEO when Steve left the company in 1985:
“In his autobiography, John Sculley, the former PepsiCo executive who once ran Apple, said this of the ambitions of the man he had pushed out: “Apple was supposed to become a wonderful consumer products company. This was a lunatic plan. High-tech could not be designed and sold as a consumer product.” How wrong can you be.”
Did you ever wonder why the Apple Logo has a bite? Here is the story.
Oh yes, Steve is a Beatles fan. Here is an interesting episode.
