For everyone that has been following our Winter ’12 blog series we thank you, however today we are breaking away from the 12 Days of Winter ’12 to recognize the passing of Apple Co-Founder, Steve Jobs. Everyone at Riptide would like to extend our condolences to the family of Steve Jobs. He was a true innovator and an inspiration to both technology users and companies alike.
Steve Jobs made a major impact on all of the industries that Apple touched under his leadership. iTunes revolutionized the music industry and how consumers purchase, use and share music. The popularity of the iPhone fundamentally changed our ideas and expectations of what it means to work and communicate in the mobile age and Apple continuing move into the cloud has helped propel the Social Revolution exponentially.
With the speed at which technology has changed over the last 10 years, it is difficult to remember a time before iTunes, iPhone, iClouds, iEverythings. This would not have been possible without the vision and leadership of Steve Jobs, directing Apples' incredible growth and popularity world wide.
