They are a lot of news in the last two days about him.As a fan I read most of them.The man with a unique vision changed my life too.
I want to share with Steve's fans one of the best with you,writen by Prof.Ulke Deniz Aribogan
One of the world's most important technology geniuses died yesterday. Steve Jobs, Apple's founder and former CEO had for some time the treatment of cancer.No doubt,his 56 year life will have a great impact on all human civilization.We will remember him not only as Apple's founder or as a rich man,we will keep in your minds him as a symbol of the spread of civilization.His death made very sad people from Medvedev to Obama, from a restaurant manager in China to a student in Nigeria, his death made sad millions of people.He tried to change the destiny of human civilization, but he had to accept his own destiny,the death.
There are a lot of kinds of rumors about his "Apple" .
Why he has chosen "Apple" as icon?
Why is he synonymous with the forbidden fruit? Why his "Apple" is a bidden one?
What symbolizes his "Apple"
I will summarize all associations which I have in my mind.
1 - Till 17th Century "Apple" has been used to define all the fruits.
For example, when first tomatoes came to Europe tomatoes were called "love apples" . Likewise, potatos are called in several languages "Earth apples", oranges are called ""Golden Apples" . In short, the essence of apple has represented all the fruits for centuries.
In the mythologie "Apple" was associated with with love and sexuality . While Apple was the first sin of Adam and Eve and ended with walking out from heaven , why on the other hand apple has been a tool in the world spearheaded the start of life.Apple started the life, on the other hand Apple managed to be an Apple finish too. I always thought Jobs had such an inspiration. In my opinion it was a new "Apple" in the world designed and sent to all of us from Jobs, Apples in a basket filled with Apple's Macintosh computers, iPhone, iPad, etc. Actually he was able to anneal to all of us.Is anybody,who doesn't bite ?
2 - Apple's official story is not a mythological or religious.The story has started during World War II by breaking the German codes , allowed England to beat Germany,with tragic end of Alan Turing,the creator of Bombe, the first computer of the world. Turing had a homosexual relationship with a youth and lived in England, convicted in1952 because of his. He had two options in front of him,to get Oestrogen injection to be castrated or to go in prison . Turing has chosen the needle , had to accept such as humiliation in front of society, but he was unable to run as a marathon runner and become a traitor through the media.Turing does not take long painful years. This great man, who was actually a war hero,committed after 2 years suicide by eating an apple with cyanide,like in his beloved story Cotton Princess. That is the story of bidden Apple in the logo of Jobs. Jobs planted this in memory of history's first computer genius in the meaning of people. In fact, former British Prime Ministerseveral years ago has been forced to apologize by Turing.
3 - Perhaps Apple describes the apple of Isaac Newton ,as the basic of science , "that special apple" . Apple is the the symbol of gravity and not love or sexuality,over the history of science. According to many, scientific turning point of starting,is Apple the fruit for this. In this regard, Apple is in the nature the icon of science.
4 - Apple is the hero of tales ,princes and princesses, good and evil, full of witches and dwarves, finally it is the last point at the end of all the tales . Apple needs to fall from the sky for at least 3.
And all the fairy tale are ending. Short-lived, or rather a little tale of Steve Jobs. But he left millions of "Apple" to us.
Lets say, he was a generous storyteller and we have to thank him.
Big thanks and applause.
