Although the previous version of iPhone, namely iPhone 4S was launched by Tim Cook, Apple’s former CEO Steve Jobs was already involved in its development before dying. Steve Jobs had qualified designers that created the iPhone gadget, but it were his ideas and concepts that lead to the creation of the iPhone masterpiece.
Steve Jobs had a brilliant creative mind that managed to change the whole perspective over technology. Maybe his inspiration and creativity was expanded by the use of Narcotic intoxication with LSD, marijuana and hashish. Why he abused of narcotic intoxication is not quite known; maybe he wanted to grasp the Divine, achieve revelation and last but not least immortality.
“The best way I would describe the effect of the marijuana and the hashish is that it would make me relaxed and creative”
”It was a positive life changing experience for me and I am glad I went through that experience”
Arthur Rimbaud could be taken as a fair example for grasping Steve Jobs involvement with drugs. The 19th century French symbolist abused of Hashish and Absinthe for achieving an inner state that would bring revelations and secrets of the world. He believed that “le dérèglement de tous les sens” meaning the disorder of senses would reveal secrets beyond the human expectations, not to mention the philosophy of stone. Whether he attempted to grasp the Truth or simply free himself from daily issues he managed to come with creative ideas that finally turned out to lead to Apple gadgets.
Even though Steve Jobs had passed away, the next generation of iPhone could also be his plan, his concept. Such a brilliant mind like Apple’s former CEO has surely come with a lot of projects that have not yet seen daylight.
If we were to take a glance at the past, when the first iPhone was introduced, users were skeptical in what concerned the new touchscreen technology, the smartphone that did not possess a keyboard. Due to the fact that it did not have a keyboard and it was priced as the most expensive phone ($500) it was believed to be a failure. But as facts highlight it, the iPhone became a “living legend”!
