Steve Jobs memorial unveiled in Russia

Jan 9 2013, 12:22pm CST | by

Moscow, Jan 9 (IANS/RIA Novosti) A memorial to renowned tech innovator and Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was unveiled in Russian city of St. Petersburg Wednesday.

Moscow, Jan 9 (IANS/RIA Novosti) A memorial to renowned tech innovator and Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was unveiled in Russian city of St. Petersburg Wednesday.

The monument, a giant replica of a black, late model iPhone with a screen that displays a photo and video slideshow of Jobs' life, is located in the courtyard of the St. Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics.

On the back, the monument features a QR code which observers can scan before being directed to a website commemorating the Apple co-founder.

The Progress IT Fund held a competition last year to select a designer for the monument. Out of more than 200 project ideas, the fund chose St. Petersburg native Gleb Tarasov's, entitled "Sunny QR Code".

Jobs, credited with helping to build Apple into a computer giant, died in October, 2011 after a long battle with cancer.

Apple products, among them the iPhone and iPad, enjoy widespread popularity among mostly urbanised, middle- and upper-class Russians.

Opinion: Seven reasons why the IBM partnership could be a pretty big deal for Apple

CEO Tim Cook Visits Beijing
Wall Street seemed pretty unmoved by Apple’s announcement of its partnership with IBM, the pre-market share price barely twitching, and analysts pointing to the high level of existing iOS usage in the enterprise sector, suggesting that only trivial gains would result. Part of the reason for that impression is the hype Apple has given to the penetration level of  iOS devices in enterprise. Back in January, Tim Cook described the numbers as “unbelieveable,” stating that t ...
