Vatican newspaper sees Steve Jobs as key cultural figure
October 06, 2011
L’Osservatore Romano has acknowledged the enormous influence of Steve Jobs, the legendary founder of Apple Computer, who died on October 5 at the age of 56.
Jobs was not simply a computer technician or entrepreneur, but “a visionary that united technology and art,” the Vatican newspaper said. While history will assess the ultimate value of his contributions, L’Osservatore said, he was undoubtedly a major figure in “a revolution of culture, mentality, and customs.”
