Economic times are tough. Over the years we have seen Apple grow as a company because of Steve Jobs and his team’s innovations. We have witnessed enormous growth from the Macintosh in 84′ to the iPad 2 in 2011. Our desires to be connected as a people along with the brilliantly simple marketing Apple has pioneered has changed the way we do things on a daily basis. While I sit back and read the many articles popping up around the web, I can’t help but think about the one thing that seems most relevant. Steve Jobs has created jobs! Bongiovi Acoustics creates software solutions like the DPS Plug-In to enhance the iTunes and Mac experience. We work with iHome which makes docking stations (most recently the iW1 Airplay) that house Apple products. These things are what hit home for us. Think of the thousands of companies that are influenced by Apple products. The families those jobs feed. Yeah I have an iPod and the next guy has the iPad 2, but we cannot forget the legacy that sticks in the heart of families and individuals the world over. Steve Jobs and Apple will continue to create jobs. Thank you Steve for doing what you have done for Bongiovi Acoustics and the world. You are alive in us all. -Joseph Beaty, DPS Insider/Bongiovi Acoustics.
