On February 24, 1955, Apple’s legendary founder Steve Jobs was born, which means he would have turned 66 today if he were still alive.
Due to the birthday, it may be in place with some movie clips showing Steve Jobs when he was at his best.
First out is Steve Jobs’ classic speech from Stanford University in 2005, a speech that many drew inspiration from:
When it comes to Steve’s many product presentations, the launch of the very first iPhone model in January 2007 is a prime example of how a grindstone should be drawn. Below we see the moment that changed the mobile industry forever:

And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can not do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.
