Today we lost an inspiration and the leader behind some of the most iconic products and marketing campaigns, Steve Jobs, who died at the age of 56 after a long battle with cancer. Steve Jobs, who made his name at Apple became a figure in society that everyone looked up to, including me.
Although a lot of people may not think this, a tribute that can be linked to Steve Jobs is the rise of social media. Although it is mainly attributed to Mark Zuckerberg, without technology such as iPhone’s and innovative tablet devices, social networks would not have gained the traffic they receive today. I can say myself that without my trusty iPhone and iPad, I wouldn’t use social networks as much. As a way of celebrating Steve Jobs, we look back at some of the brands TV advertising campaigns:
First Apple Commercial 1977 by High Technology, Inc.
An Old Macintosh Ad “They Have A Mac!”
Old Apple Ad – The Internet
I’m a Mac, says Webb. I’m a PC, says Mitchell
iPod Advert 2006
iPhone Advert 2007
Steve Jobs, 1955 – 2011
