I have been tossing around some thoughts in regards to the message that I wanted to get across regarding this matter as just not mentioning the passing of Steve Jobs is a bit too far outside of the box when it comes to an online publication, which may be viewed by many with Apple products, yet I must offer yet another different perspective to consider.
If I was to just keep it simple by picturing the matter it would look like
I Can Relate!
Backstage @ THE BIG IDEA TV Show. I CAN RELATE!
Self Explanatory - I Can DEFINATELY Relate
and definately this as even Warren Buffet was not willing to let Bill Gates keep this kind of invaluable publicity all to himself.
Getting to the meat of the matter of a different perspective to consider, while I do find some of the Apple products to be innovative, I have always felt like they were not necessarily targeted to me as a buyer,Â but would accept my money if I wanted to disrespect myself and my moneys worth, and this goes all the way back to 2004 when seeking a solution for the power on an iPod purchased from the Apple store.
I just never felt that the commericals and marketing were talking to me as an individual but to a select group who I could perhaps try and fit in with if my self esteem was such that I needed something to add value to me that did not really have the same respect for me in return, and as wild as it seemed in the form of a claim, this marketing campaign actually surfaced to demonstrate it better than I was ever able to.
It was then that I saw that Bill Gates may have held the same sentiments as the founder and chairman of Microsoft along with the title of Forbes Richest Man on the planet, but not too above the people who use their products to the extent that he hopped in a television commercial to demonstrate the lack of a need to tear down to competitors products toÂ boost the credibility of his own.
In closing, while opinions are just like Twitter and Facebook profiles, something that just about everyone has these days, I decided to set mine apart by stating that in such said economically challenging times, respect for everyone’s value who respect their own self would perhaps do Apple some good in the passing of itsÂ General Steve Jobs as a matter of wealth redistribution done the hard or easy way.
