A BIT MORE ABOUT STEVE JOBS

October 17, 2011

Steve Jobs was Apple´s cofounder. He died last week at the age of 56 because of pancreatic cancer. Last Friday  we saw in class the speech given by him at Stanford University in 2005. I was impressed and my curiosity grew and grew so this weekend I´ve been reading lots of articles about him and his personality.
Most experts think that Jobs changed the world as Edison did.
He has been defined as an obstinate, enthusiast, egocentric, arrogant and perfectionist person. A visionary without a degree or the pioneer of the singular technology. Finally “a genius”. It is known that great talents are or have been odd, strange. Not only was he witty but also mysterious.
The thing I like most is the “Apple”. The symbol. So I guessed that he used the image of the apple´s bite as the Beetles did. The Fruit of the Original Sin. His choice cost him an intensive legal battle for years. Till 2010  the Beetles music didn´t appear in iTune Store.

He didn´t work for money he worked for emotions.

    Can you believe that i didn’t know Steve jobs until we watch the video in class??? I’m horrible with new technology… I really like the way he say we should live. It’s true that if you aren’t happy at work or with your life you should change it, but sometimes it’s not very easy… At least we shoult try it!

    If anybody wants to read a bit more about Jobs’ relevance in today’s world, I´ve just discovered an article titled: “One More Great Lesson From Steve Jobs: Innovation Begins As A Social Movement” via fastcodesign.com. I hope you enjoy it!

    I think, Steve said something really important… when you are not good at your job, just look for something else. We’re not educated to leave what makes us unhappy…the other way around…and It’s a big mistake. If we say no, we’ve got a terrible feeling, but sometimes we should say NO to get what we really want!

    Well Nieves, he didn’t exactly say “when you are not good” he said “when you are not happy” and what I loved it that by this he not only meant work, but also the life we lead.

    Hi,
    I’m kistening to a radio station programme called MUNDO BABEL (RNE). I love quite this programme!. To my surprise, today is devoted to Steve Jobs. Juan Pablo Silvestre, its presenter, are interviewing Fernando Garcés about his new book “The story of a world”, A Mac, Four lifes…

    “The day Steve Jobs died”
    Fernando Garcés, a writer specialized in the brands’ story has introduced the four lives of Steve Jobs. As a whole, Steve Jobs as a man of the Renaissance, between the humanities and technology, even at the same level of Nietzsche, Platon, Da Vinci.

    Nice programme musical set with the soundtrack of The Beatles, Dilan, Joan Baez…
    You are quite likely to find this programme as a podcast in a near future: http://www.rtve.es/radio/20081110/mundo-babel/192578.shtml

    You definitely won’t be disappointed at listening to this delightful dedication from MUNDO BABEL to Steve Jobs. This programme has been a SMALL BITE. Find it in the Network!.
