Steve Jobs, omul anului si \”The american dream\”


Asa l-a numit presedintele SUA Barack Obama pe Steve Jobs, presedintele companiei Apple, facand referire la modul in care Steve Jobs a reusit sa ridice Apple pe culmile gloriei dupa revenirea sa in fruntea companiei. Obama a declarat intr-un interviu dat unui reporter ca americanii ar trebui sa celebreze bogatia deoarece face parte din “capitalism” si dorinta de imbogatire au adus natiunea americana unde este astazi(and that is not good).

We celebrate somebody like a Steve Jobs, who has created two or three different revolutionary products. We expect that person to be rich, and that’s a good thing. We want that incentive. That’s part of the free market.

Aceasta declaratie a presedintelui Obama vine dupa ce revista Financial Times l-a declarat pe Steve Jobs “persoana anului” punand accent pe faptul ca tableta iPad a fost un punct de cotitura in evolutia companiei Apple. Tableta iPad este vazuta ca fiind unul dintre cele mai revolutionare produse de Apple vreodata sub conducerea lui Steve Jobs, acesta fiind creditat pentru modul in care a fost conceputa tableta.

A rebuttal of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s much-quoted aphorism that there are no second acts in American life does not come more decisively than this,” wrote Richard Waters and Joseph Menn. When Steven Paul Jobs first hit the headlines, he was younger even than Mark Zuckerberg is now. Long before it was cool to be a nerd, his formative role in popularising the personal computer, and Apple’s initial public offering on Wall Street made him the tech industry’s first rock star.Now, three decades on, he has secured his place in the foremost ranks of the West Coast tech titans who have done so much to shape the world around the turn of the millennium.

Adevarul este ca Steve jobs merita toate laudele pentru contributia sa la dezvoltarea tehnologica a gadget-urilor din ziua de astazi si personal consider ca fara Apple inca ne-am fi “jucat” cu smartphone-uri de genul terminalului N96.
