Hey guys, now, Apple’s keynote is now live, but I like to analyze the keynotes, but right off the bat, I noticed something major that caught my eye. Steve Jobs is wearing black shoes. This is huge, he has NEVER worn any other color of shoe in any of his keynotes. He has always worn white or grey New Balance sneakers.
So why should we care? I think this is a big hint at the status of his health. I think he wanted to send us a cryptic message, not by saying it out loud, but subtle. To me, this is huge, it can signify that there are big changes ahead. His explanation for being at the keynote doesn’t jive with me. “We worked on this for a long time, so I had to be here”.
All of Apple’s products have taken a long time to create, this isn’t an excuse, he’s still technically not supposed to be working at Apple right now, yet, we see him giving the keynote.
Honestly, I believe that him “taking a leave” without a date of return is a way to ease out of the company and prepare the world for a new era of Apple. Whether it’s Tim Cook who takes the big chair or not, who knows, but I think that his clothes were a sign of things to come.
For someone to do something exactly the same for every time we see them and for them to suddenly change, that is sort of alarming.
I think 2011 will be a very interesting time for Apple and Steve Jobs.
We wish him the best and we hope that he gets better, whether he returns to work at Apple or not, nothing can change the fact that he has changed the world forever.
