Weekly Roundup: Steve Jobs and Apple

by Kristina Tahnyak on October 14, 2011 · 1 comment

Happy Friday DINKS!  Actually today’s Weekly Roundup topic is not so happy; it is bittersweet.  Today we are paying tribute to Mr. Steve Jobs the former CEO of Apple Corporation. Steve Jobs was (and will forever be remembered as) a pioneer in technology and in business.  The Apple Corp front man recently lost his battle with cancer, and I don’t know if the world of technology will ever be the same.  We are thankful for the impact that Steve Jobs had on the world of technology, and we are definitely sad that we had to lose him at such a young age.

We recently featured Apple Corporation in one of our Stock Market Showdown posts where we compared the stock of Apple Corp with Research in Motion. My boyfriend Nick is a huge fan of Apple Corp.  There are no words that I can say that will do justice to Steve Jobs, his career, and his impact on the world.  So I will leave it up to the online community to share their thoughts on Steve Jobs and his impact on our lives.

Here are some other posts from around the web about Steve Jobs and his dedication to technology and Apple Corporation:

  • Adam @ Man vs Debt  discusses the impact that Steve Jobs had on the world of business and technology in the post “The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world…”
  • Trent @ The Simple Dollar talks about his admiration for the Apple CEO in the post “Some Thoughts on Steve Jobs”
  • Dave @ 50 Plus Finance tells us about the impact that Steve Jobs had on the world in the post “Apple Founder Steve Jobs Dead At 56-Modern Day Edison”
  • Catherine @ Daily Finance shows how Steve Jobs not only influenced our technology lives but also our personal finance lives in the post “How Steve Jobs Change the Way We Spend Money”

Thanks for including me. I was really saddened with the passing of Steve Jobs. He was probably someone that the common nerd could rally around and point to and say he was one of us. We were proud of his accomplishments. He pushed the limit on technology and combined it with style and class.
