It's now seven years later, Steve Jobs has launched The Macintosh, people disregard it as unimportant and not something that will sell. Macintosh goes on to become one of the most popular personal computer in the world. But Steve Jobs is made to leave Apple soon after by the board of directors. Almost like being fired from your own company.
Why is he on a blog related to Magic? Because it's often said that a trick is as good as the magician or the performer and Steve Jobs is one of the most awesome performers the world has ever seen. For those of you haven't seen the Apple keynotes, do yourself a favor and go see them right now.
What Jobs does through his keynotes, no other CEO is able to. Jobs has made millions of people believe that Apple is religion and he is God, just through his keynotes. Before the iPod was launched there were Mp3 players sold by Japanese companies, and they presented them as "2 GB hard drive, 8 inch products that could hold songs." Steve Jobs presented the iPod as "One Thousand Songs in Your Pocket." Simple, jargon free and awesome.
I can go on and on about him, but I doubt a lot of you would be interested. If you are, let me know and I'll post another one on him.
Till then I leave you with this, "Mac, iPod, iPhone, iPad, you make one of those and you're remembered forever. He made all four ensuring that he's remembered for eternity." Thank you Steve, you'll be missed.
