In addition to his many other accomplishments, Steve Jobs did more for a single letter of the alphabet than any other person in the history of the English language.
Think about it. A single, lowercase “i” is synonymous with an entire company, and several industries of related hardware, software, and peripheral paraphernalia. What other letter has that going for it?
I’d allow “e” as a strong contender, but go back to my original point: who is the person who coined e-mail, e-commerce, e-this, or e-that? Their identity has been lost to the wind.
What Steve Jobs did for the letter “i” – for better and for worst – is an underappreciated part of his legacy.
