I just came across these cartoon parodies poking fun at (while giving tribute to) Steve Jobs, the man behind Apple. As he passes into the next life, cartoonist speculate as to what the Mac Man might be up to. Here’s a peek at Job’s job up there.
We’ll keep an eye for the dings you create up there.
“Do what you love.”
I can’t say that I love Apple. I’ve been pretty much excluded from their market for the most part. I tried once to sign up for an i-tunes store account to buy a song and I was informed that I couldn’t because my county wasn’t covered in the copyright ‘thingie’, so I never bothered coming back.
I do own an iPod classic that is 2 (plus) years old. It is the only Apple product I have ever purchased. You’d wish you could take out the files you put into it, but besides that, I have no regrets there. I hear Apple products are really great stuff and I am inclined to believe this, because one, I love my iPod, two because I have never seen first hand a dissatisfied Apple customer, and three, because I watched a video of Steve Jobs’ 2005 Stanford commencement address. If a man can tell his life story in 15 minutes, and make the kind of impact that he did with me, I can believe that he is capable of anything. Steve Jobs’ is a truly astonishing life and this (below) is the video that made me believe so.
The following video sums up the magnum opus that is Steve Jobs‘ life.
