Since so much of our blog has been dedicated to reviews, critques and praise for Apple products, we felt it only right to dedicate this week’s Videos of the Week to the man that started it all: Steve Jobs. We’ve put together three Steve Jobs videos that we think are worth your time to watch. Enjoy!
When history happens, we are told that you’ll always remember where you were when you found out. I don’t think that will be the case with the death of Steve Jobs. Do I think his death is historical?
