October 5th was the fateful day when Apple co-founder Steve Jobs passed away. The moment the news of his passing made the web, condolences and kind words about Jobs surfaced. People from all walks of life, from every continent, expressed their sympathies but soon after the initial shock, haters began posting mean sentiments as well. Now a search for Steve Jobs could get you mixed articles, mixing the sweet and the sour nature of mankind.
There are documentaries, specials and even his authorized biography was published not a month after his death. Millions of people quickly turned to those, soaking up every bit of information about Jobs, like it brought them closer to him in some way. People rushed to pre-order the biography by Walter Isaacson, and when the book officially hit stores, over 379,000 copies have flown off the shelves since October 24th.
But as expected, the Jobs biography faced the many negatives, highlighting the strained relationship between Jobs and Bill Gates. They were once friends but with the stiff competition in the IT world, friendship had no place.
Another documentary, PBS’ One Last Thing, showed the different sides of Jobs, from the tech genius that he was, to his drug use, and Jobs being more of a marketing genius than an engineer. This documentary showed that if Jobs entered the IT world at this day and age, the world would probably not even hear about Jobs, as engineers are like the basic unit of life in Silicon Valley.
