Why Google needs a Steve Jobs
One of the first things that comes to mind when you think about apple is Steve Jobs. For some people that spit – second connection in the brain happens even before the connection apple – fruit is being made.
Have you ever thought about that? Would Apple be Apple without a Steve Jobs pulling the strings for all those years?
Jobs was a control freak, a know-it-all, but above anything a visionary pur sang. He had a way of predicting the near future and if his prediction didn’t come true, he made it come true.
‘In Control’. He used to think about the round edges a phone or tablet, the materials that were used, the design of the user interfaces that were being used.
No tech work, oh no. Apple is designed by design-people. It’s how some people see a car. “If I want to drive a car I don’t have to know how the engine works, all I need to know is how to drive it”. You can’t blame people for seeking that convenience.
You don’t have to be a writer to appreciate a good book.
In his last year Jobs looked like shit. I know, he was very sick and died on October 5th – 2011. Gone, but not forgotten. In fact he had the future set out for Apple. Even dead he’s of use.
People love underdogs that are winners. People love someone they can relate to, People love men wearing turtle necks and jeans in stead of the criminal grey of the ‘upper class’. To hell with them!
Google has Larry Page. The perfect son in law.
To the average internet user the CEO of Google could have been anyone. People don’t know him. Have never seen him, don’t know how he looks. Colorless. No Karma.
Google needs a ‘Steve Jobs’. Our Steve, but alive. Someone that has the guts to say “Feck it, let’s change our logo, people must be getting sick and tired of those colors, that look like kindergarten – lego’s. Let’s make something with gradient colors and matching schemes. And – what the hell – with rounded edges, we must have rounded edges.”.
They need a Larry Page that does not allow for wringing the sorry little necks of millions of bloggers by ever changing ‘score algorithms’, panda and penguin changes that seem to affect all sites except the major company sites. What will be the next update? Zebra, that does not allow for free back – linking anymore? You never know!
Oh that’s where the money comes from. Advertisers. Right. I forgot. Sorry, Mr. Page.
