Another Weird Steve Jobs Birthday
Apple continues to release successful, nay, trend-setting products and makes obscene amounts of money. Nevertheless, as mark Steve Jobs birthday, the tech visionary’s shadown still looms large over the company and Apple Chairman Art Levinson keenly feels that presence.
“I’m still not to the point where I walk into that boardroom and don’t miss Steve,” says Levinson. “He was a one of a kind guy … The Steve Jobs that was in the public eye was not, for the most part, the Steve Jobs that I knew.”
Levinson, a long-time Jobs friend and Apple board member since 2000, made the comments at Standford’s Graduate School of Business. When asked about running Apple’s board of directors since Jobs death, Levinson offered a single word answer, “Weird.”
Yeah, it is weird to be wishing Steve Jobs “Happy Birthday” — February 24, 1955. He would have been 58 years old today…
