It was almost as though Steve Jobs waited for the baton to be officially handed to his successor Tim Cook, by announcing the release of the newest addition to the iphone range. He died surrounded by his family in California.
Already somewhat of a damp squib, being a “4s” rather than a completely new design, and overshadowed by the death of one of the co-founders, the release of this latest device is still likely to cause as much of a frenzy and all the previous releases.
Thousands of people arrived from as far as Tokyo and New York and queue for over 24 hours when the last iphone was released. So expect a similar rush, despite the current economic climate, such is the attraction of the apple devices.
RIP Steve Jobs.
