Mankind has been infatuated with fame since the beginning of time. From the Great Pyramids of Giza continuing through to the Victorian Era, humans have held a special place in their hearts for those they hold in high esteem. Living in modern day Los Angeles, one can only dream of not becoming consumed by society’s warped concept of reality but more often than not, we feed off the gossip and succumb to a world of socialites, Hollywood divorce and local celebrities.
Debates are taking place right now across the country, as families gather around the dinner table dishing out the hottest celebrity news and commenting on which star has changed their hair color or increased their bust size. One person who has actually changed our world for the better is Apple’s co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs. He may not be as attractive as Hollywood’s leading starlet or it’s most eligible bachelor, but after changing the face of technology, his legacy will remain forever.
Revolutionary poet Gil Scott Heron once said, “The revolution will not be televised…” and this statement continues to ring true decades later. The revolution, however, is being widely publicized worldwide via technological advances led by Jobs’ team of developers. After revolutionizing the electronic, film and music industries, Steve Jobs was called home and, reportedly, his last words were “Oh wow! Oh wow! Oh wow!”
Imagine being able to share the last meal with the visionary before his untimely passing. What would we eat? Would we research restaurants on Yelp using an iPad 2? Would we be given turn by turn directions on a 3G iPhone 4? The small talk preceding the main course would have been of monumental proportions during which I’d have pitched my innovative idea, the iPatch.
