A Job Well Done!
October 05, 2012 @ 00:00 am
While the arguments about which is the best platform to put across your ideas on, won't perish until people begin to realize that every one of these devices aim to fulfill a common goal.
We must still acknowledge the fact that each of these companies, run along a path carefully marked by some of the best minds in the tech-world. With each of these tech moguls catering to a fan following of well-wishers; ready to challenge other fans over an invention not thought about by their hero; surely inspires them.
One of the exponents of this tech-revolution faced many barriers in his life until life drew the curtains upon him, and today is his first death anniversary. Certainly, I am talking about none other than, the founder of Apple, Steve Jobs. Try to re-wind back to the same time last year, we all thought that Apple’s days were numbered; however, they still introduced the iPhone 5 with the former glory, and did the job the way Jobs would have.
Here is what he said at one time: “Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.”
Now let me take you through his life, with a few “did you know” questions. If you think you are the biggest Job’s fan, you must be able to get these ones:
