NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg: Steve Jobs “Saw the Future” + Makes Government More Efficient
ADDS: Apple products allow government employees to do their jobs more efficiently and intuitively!
New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg issued the following statement on the death of Apple co-founder and Former CEO Steve Jobs:
“Tonight, America lost a genius who will be remembered with Edison and Einstein, and whose ideas will shape the world for generations to come. Again and again over the last four decades, Steve Jobs saw the future and brought it to life long before most people could even see the horizon. And Steve’s passionate belief in the power of technology to transform the way we live brought us more than smart phones and iPads: it brought knowledge and power that is reshaping the face of civilization. In New York City’s government, everyone from street construction inspectors to NYPD detectives have harnessed Apple’s products to do their jobs more efficiently and intuitively. Tonight our City – a city that has always had such respect and admiration for creative genius – joins with people around the planet in remembering a great man and keeping Laurene and the rest of the Jobs family in our thoughts and prayers.”
