Steve Jobs, co-founder of Apple Computers, has died in California at the age of 56.
Steve Jobs was a visionary who brought us the home computer (Apple II), graphical user interface and computer mouse (Apple Mac), smart phone (Apple iPhone), tablet computer (Apple iPad). He also co-founded Pixar, which gave us classic movies like Toy Story, Finding Nemo, The Incredibles and Wall-E.
Steve Jobs was certainly one of America's great producers, but his success was only possible because of investments made by an American predator. If it wasn't for predator financial institutions we would never have heard of Steve Jobs or used his products.
Steve Jobs inspired a generation of technology startups. He showed us how you could mix geek technology with design to produce cool products which flew off the shelves.
The Apple Mac was launched with a superbowl ad showing big brother. How ironic that here in the UK Big Brother wants to stop us generating our own stars like Steve Jobs.
Ed Miliband want's to kill the goose that lays the Golden Eggs by eradicating financial predators from London. Ed Balls wants to tax them out of the country. They do not understand that producers like Steve Jobs rely on a financial system to prosper, as do we all.
Steve Jobs, gone but not forgotten. Lets remember his work by inspiring our own generation of Steve Jobs rather than complaining because they make a lot of money.
