Last year, the world lost one of the most influential technology visionaries of all time, Steve Jobs, passed away.
There are some links between the two; well, The Beatles founded Apple Corps Ltd (informally known as Apple) a multimedia corporation mostly known for its record label, Apple Records. Steve Jobs was known to be a huge fan of The Beatles and he used The Beatles as his model for business: “They were four guys that kept each other’s negative tendencies in check; they balanced each other. And the total was greater than the sum of the parts. Great things in business are never done by one person, they are done by a team of people.”
OK, back to the music; swing along on ‘Love me Do’!
