What would Steve Jobs have done if he had lived another 20 years?

It shaped Apple gadgets to a great extent. I call him the father of the evolution of the mobile phone, from the Nano to the ipod, from the ipod to the mobile phone, from the mobile phone to the ipad and Mac Airbook etc, his appearance on stage is surprising and fascinating. When it reveals something, it is revolutionary. I'm sure it could have done better, not like current Apple is doing, downsizing, changing different chips and RAM.

I don't think he's dead, but I think he's retired and he's just living somewhere enjoying freedom. But he will remain a legend for the public in the future generation (I just say I don't know, I think so).

And what would he have done? He always forces his engineers like this:

When the engineers working on the first iPod completed the prototype, they submitted their work to Steve Jobs for approval. Jobs played with the device, inspected it, weighed it in his hands, and then immediately rejected it. It was too big for him.

The engineers explained that they had to reinvent the invention to create the iPod, and that it was simply impossible to make it smaller. He was quiet for a moment and stood up, walked over to an aquarium, and dropped the iPod into the tank. After it hit the bottom, the bubbles floated to the top.

"Those are air bubbles," he said. "That means there is space there. Make it smaller."

It's a lesson that seems to have stuck with Apple's engineers as well.

The original iPod was 19.8 mm thick. Years later, Apple's latest iPod is just 6.1mm thick and all the space is used. this is what the inside of the recent ipod looks like

I think it would have taken humanity even further. He is responsible for the two major technological revolutions of all time: the smartphone revolution and the personal computer revolution. With 20 years older, it is difficult to imagine what he came up with. IPhones and MacBooks would be history because he didn't like sticking with the same product for too long. The tech industry would have seen many more revolutions.

For me, he is not dead, his memories will always be with us, his spirit and passion are still there inspiring millions like him ready to change the world.
