There are many men out there but few get charged up to the level of causing change in their communities that in turn re-align the world.
Another loss of a man who defied odds.
Many ignored him for his ideas. When Apple was on the brinks of failure no one had hope in his visionary guide. He did believe in what he did so much so that he effortlessly injected his passion to his team and any time he would speak anyone listening knew why they should buy Apple.
From the onset he decreed and did declare that Apple was the best buy. Media covered another “geek” story but then he challenged the world to try the products. And as we know everyone got an Ipod or wanted one Even Obama used his to show how real he was and sure he got the vote. Media covered his Ipod playlist and we know how that got many other leaders hooked unto Apple. Even Raila Odinga got an Ipad, we saw it the other day as he scrolled on it at the Kenyatta University Meet two months ago. I- tunes became an “in thing”. Then came the Iphone that skeptics said could not stand a chance against leading smartphones. But today that has changed an even in tablets the Ipad success was a first.
According to Reuters He did achieve more than we think. And he braved cancer to the last.
Apple is what it is for the man that Steve Jobs was. Yes we mourn the loss but we laud & celebrate the efforts that have given birth to our inseparable companions that Ipods, Iphones, Macbook(air)& Ipads have become. Bravo Steve!
For those of us who still have ground to cover…..Amandla! Aweku…..Aluta Continua!
