In listening to the various commemorations of the impact of Steve Jobs’ legacy on society at large, there is one recurring theme - his work was transformative. Pick a direction and go in it, and you can probably find a way in which he had an influence, almost like the rays of the sun.
I would like to take this opportunity to share the impact of Steve Jobs on Casauri. Apple was the first computer company that gave Casauri a chance to do business with them in our early years. No other computer company would give us the time of day. In fact, back in 2003 when I asked the CEO of a prominent PC company if he would consider our line of colorful designer laptop bags, he said: “no, thank you”.
Apple on the other hand, was willing to give us a try in the Apple Company Store in Cupertino, CA and on Apple.com. We attribute Apple’s willingness to work with a small business, initially run from my bedroom, as a token of the visionary heritage direct from Steve Jobs. So I thank him and Apple for yet another transformative act.
On behalf of Casauri, I would like to express sincere condolences to the family of Steve Jobs and to all our friends at Apple. Although today may be cloudy, the sun still shines and your future is bright.
