This Tuesday, October 5, ten years of the death of Steve Jobs, one of the co-founders of Apple, considered a visionary and revolutionary of digital leisure, personal computing and mobile telephone.
Jobs died at 56 years of age on October 5, 2011, a victim of pancreas cancer he had suffered for years. On August of that same year he left the position of him as Executive Director of the Technological Company, giving the position to him successor, Tim Cook, who has led Apple since then.
Years later, and despite the inter-center trajectory in Apple, Jobs approved the launch of the Ipod Audio Player (2001) that two years later was accompanied by a digital store, iTunes. But it was the world of mobile telephony that was most impacted by the contributions of Jobs. iPhone (2007) and iPad (2010) managed to put Apple in a reference position that still today is maintained.
However, Jobs' posture was very different from what today triumphs in the market. It was a strong defender of the small screens for the 'smartphones' - less than 5 inches -, and of the big ones in the case of the tablets, which led him to openly face companies like Samsung and Verizon after the announcement of the launch In 2010 of the 7-inch Galaxy Tablet.Updated Date: 09 October 2021, 07:18
