Sunday October 16, 2016 is Steve Jobs Day.

“Own an iPad? How about an iPhone? Are you one the thousands of people who enjoy the light, trouble-free life that is owning a Mac? Then you owe it all to one amazing man by the name of Steve Jobs. This day recognizes the incredible innovator that he was, and all that he’s done to both change and define the world that we live in.

He was born in Germantown, Wisconsin. It appears that wealth runs in the blood of the family, as Jobs biological father was the son of a self-made millionaire with no college education.

Don’t take that to mean that the man wasn’t hugely influential in Jobs’ life, he was a largely positive influence and he especially appreciated his step-father’s craftsmanship. His love of spending time with his father doing handy-crafts eventually led to Jobs developing a deep love for electronics by the age of 10. This set the path for the creation of Apple in 1976, where he stayed until 1985, resigning from the company with a cool $7 million and establishing NeXT computers, which would eventually be bought by Apple Computers and mark his return to the company in 1997, the rest of which is history.

What many of today’s Apple Users don’t know is that the company and brand was steeply in decline prior to the return of Jobs, and the iPod was what would really bring the company back into the limelight. After than it was i-everything. Steve passed from this world due to a losing battle with Pancreatic cancer.

If you’ve never used an Apple product, this day may be the excuse you need to stop in at an Apple Store and drink the kool-aid. After all, he’s done so much for the world and helped to change and shape the world of computing, if nothing else you can stop in and pay your respects.” ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/o28L5
