Heroes, by Duncan Coker

October 6, 2011 |

In these time where heroes and inspiring figures are hard to find, I would put Jobs right at the top of the list. His vision of bringing the world to a digital age brought us not just cool devices, but more music, books, culture, and greater efficiencies so more time with our family and friends. And all these benefits were the surplus to the actual tangible wealth he created for himself, shareholders and investors. When my daughter asks me who the heroes were of my generation, I will say Jobs.

    Gates and Jobs will be seen as two people who invented and created a new world order of technology. Historically there really is nobody to compare them to. between the two of them they developed a market with a value of 700 odd Billion.

    In addition think back to life before Microsoft and Apple It is impossible to use words to adequately describe the impact.

    More importantly, Jobs did it the right way. I do not know the man but it appears to me that he was revered by his employees, worshipped by his customers, and truly loved by his friends.
