Steve Jobs Remembered In Iran

By Golnaz Esfandiari, RFE/RL

People from all over the world, including Iran, are mourning the death of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs.

Many Iranians have expressed sadness over Jobs' death on social-media sites by reposting a video with Persian subtitles of a famous speech given in 2005 at Stanford University, and sharing news stories and pictures of the Apple innovator.

Iranians are fond of Apple products, which reach them despite the sanctions the Islamic Republic is facing over its sensitive nuclear work.

Well-known blogger Alireza Shirazi posted a black-and-white picture of Jobs on his blog and praised him as a creative human being.
