Steve Jobs in dead.
The news is a day old but Jobs is treading worldwide on twitter and I am sure on other social media.
A valid question, with no clear answer I presume.
From various quarters and on different mediums people are remembering Jobs and expressing. This is why the social grief.
Steve was among the greatest of American innovators says US president Barack Obama which everyone including firstpost publishes on front page whereas a non tech savvy Rajasthan chief minister @AshokGehlot51 also tweets Millions like me, will remember forever #SteveJobs as a legendary innovator who touched our lives. Long Live the ‘ i ‘ man.
While a David Dunkley Gyimah, an Apple Pro and senior lecturer at University of Westminster writes In Memory of Steve Jobs and Apple.
The three though not even representing the fraction of Jobs fans, followers and supporters of the iconic inventor get a medium via social medium to express their feelings for the man.
Even someone like me who has never used an apple product ever tweeted with #iSad for the news of Jobs demise did make me feel sad and #iSad merely for that you become a part of the community that mourns the man online.
The #iSad may well be a fad or following the herd but it also brings some amazing facts which aren’t published.
May be this is why a #iSad phenomenon.
Whatever be the reason, fact remains Jobs will always remain in the hearts of millions and Apple will be his legacy which would be difficult to replicate.
