Steve Jobs was a man with a vision. Now, students can easily pay to do college assignment to A One Assignment if they have goals too!

Its crazy how people don't realize that without apple, they would be holding a completely different device in their hand nowadays. Whether it be samsung, motorola.. They wouldn't have become what they are today if it wasn't for the iPhone. RIP jobs, and thank you for what you have done for the world of technology :)

If it wasn't for Apple, no one would have the future of smartphones that learned from their master (competition moved on because of Apple in general). That's mainly why I never stopped loving iphone.
