Steve Jobs after his death received 141 patent




Steve Jobs was a genius inventor, and evil tongues are predicting that he created the corporation will never be able to recover after the death of its ideological mastermind. Although many experts involved in the creation of Apple products for many years, patents and trademarks emphasize how important was the role of Jobs in innovation: it has registered many patents by Apple as one of the inventors. And now, when there is a businessman, he continues to receive patents. Publication of MIT Technology Review found that the number of patents issued in the name of Steve Jobs after his death, has reached 141.


The very first Apple patent Jobs introduced in 1980 – it was the design of the computer. The vast majority of applications on his behalf were related to patents that focus on design decisions, although it also develops and software interfaces. On the aesthetic sense Jobs greatly influenced by Zen Buddhism: as a designer, he has always gravitated toward simplicity and even minimalism, and in decision-making play a big role intuition.


The patent for the user interface docking panel in the operating system Mac OS X has been issued the day before Jobs’ death. And one of the last – on the design of “glass cube” on Fifth Avenue in New York – was received in August of this year . The famous Apple Store crowned the entrance to the underground shopping point total area of ​​25,000 square feet (about 2,300 sq. M). In the cube placed wide spiral staircase and elevator shaft.


Patent applications are assessed regardless of the date of submission, so we can not say which of them will be the last for Jobs.
