Steve Jobs changed forever the way the world views, and interacts with, technology.
Jobs passed away last week, at the age of 56, from cancer.
Jobs helped to invent many products including the Macintosh computer, the iPhone, the iPod and the iPad. Along with Steve Wozniak, he founded computer company Apple.
It may be difficult for young people, who may have never known computers and phones before Steve Jobs changed them, to understand the massive impact he made.
A 1984 video of Jobs unveiling a brand-new product called the Macintosh computer, gives some idea.
To us today, the technology seems horribly outdated, clunky and… can you believe it? the images on the tiny computer screen aren’t even in colour!
But listen to the audience in the video as Jobs walks over to a small bag and takes the computer out. It has a handle! It’s small enough to carry! It has graphics, not just text! The audience gasps, cheers and claps because no one has ever seen anything like it.
