Beyond the iPad: The True Legacy of Steve Jobs

legacy of Steve JobsFor many, the legacy of Steve Jobs may be the device you hold in your hand or the computer on which you are reading this right now. But the true legacy of Steve Jobs is not one of technology, but of life.

Verizon 4G Wireless Internet 5GB Bandwidth Limitation: You Can’t Be Serious
