This — as many of us know — is the long held motto of the technological colossus, Apple.
The passing of Steve Jobs has had a profound effect on all of us, and it is truly remarkable how sweeping of a response there has been to such a sad event. Looking through the social media and news feeds, it has been jam-packed with praise and commemoration. I would love to see the trending statistics of Twitter and Facebook, because I bet it would be awe-inspiring to see the sheer amount of discussion about the differences he has made in all of our lives.
To me, this is what the Steve Jobs difference means. He tried to make the world a better place by helping people unite with technology. His vision changed the world, quite literally. He has been compared to being the Henry Ford and Thomas Edison of our time, and I believe rightfully so. He took the world and made it his own, changing the way we all think, learn, grow and interact.
