Less than two weeks ago, Steve Jobs, one of the world’s greatest innovators, passed away. His death is still being mourned around the globe. Apple’s homepage still only features a portrait of Steve Jobs; no marketing, whatsoever, despite the iPhone 4S launch. Steve Jobs has made an impact on the daily lives of millions of people that will never be forgotten.
As such, Discovery Channel will be hosting a special one-hour documentary titled “iGenius: How Steve Jobs Changed the World” tonight at 8:00 p.m. EDT/PDT, and “will include interviews with various people whose lives were greatly impacted by Jobs.” Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman of Discovery’s Mythbusters will be hosting the special.
“Someone once said that to follow the path that others have laid before you is a very reasonable course of action, therefore all progress is made by unreasonable men,” Savage said. “Steve Jobs was an unreasonable man. He didn’t simply give the public what they wanted, he defined entirely new ways of thinking about our lives in the digital space: productivity, creativity, music, communication, media and art. He has touched, directly and indirectly, all of our lives.”
It will be interesting to see Savage and Hyneman, both innovators themselves, express their own thoughts and feelings for Steve Jobs, along with others. No doubt, millions will be tuned into the special tonight. Will you be one of them?
