Steve Nash, Steve Perry, and Steve Jobs
What do these three guys all have in common? Well, besides the fact that they all probably have some type of iDevice, they are also all considered the very best in the industry that they’re in.
Steve Nash led the NBA in assists for five years and is one of four in the 50-40-90 Club (NBA stars who have shot at least 50% from the field, 40% from the three-point line, and 90% from the free-throw line in a single season). The other three that join him are Larry Bird, Reggie Miller, and Mark Price.
Steve Perry is best known as the lead singer for Journey. He was awarded the title of “greatest rock singer” in 2010 and his most popular song “Don’t Stop Believin’” is considered one of the greatest songs ever. In fact, it is the best-selling digital song released in the 20th century and as of August, it’s been downloaded 4,715,000 times, making it one of the top twenty best-selling digital songs of all time.
But they are not the reason I’m writing this blog post. Today I want to focus on the third Steve….. the one known as Steve Jobs.
As many of you know, Steve Jobs founded Apple Computer. He was responsible for the original Mac in 1984, the iMac in 1996, iTunes in ’99, the iPod in 2001, the iPhone in 2007, and the iPad in 2010. I’m not sure there is any other person who has changed the world as much as Mr. Jobs. Not even Zuckerberg or the two Google guys can hold a candle to Steve.
Anyway…… Steve Jobs stepped down as Apple’s CEO a couple of weeks ago, so as a way to show appreciation to the man who’s vision and inspiration touched millions of lives, we are declaring this Friday,
September 9, 2011 as “Dress Up Like Steve Jobs Day.” All you need is your iPhone ($199), a black mock-turtleneck from LL Bean ($15), Levi’s 501 Jeans ($60), and the New Balance 992’s ($100).
The Facebook page (“Dress Up Like Steve Jobs Day”) got over 1000 participants within the first 48 hours and it’s now up to 1,678. So how about it? Will you dress up on Sept 9th?
