"Apple's wealth was built on brilliant PR..." CBC Radio One did an amazing docu on Jobs. It was fascinating to hear of all the PR he orchestrated beyond being a genius that started with a pittance of coin in a garage and turned it into billions "overnight". The fact that he kept telling one advertising agency that he wanted "something different" from them for OVER a year but wouldn't give them any clues. Sheer genius when he had a full page ad in Rolling Stone Mag... "Welcome IBM" with the apple logo... what a stroke (yes, a double)! And more, including the "obit" ad in that same mag "Steeve Job's Legacy, February 24, 1955 - " What a sendoff ad! Sheer marketing genius!
Truly a genius who changed the course of history... in a garage.
