Stevie Wonder gives a shout-out to Steve Jobs, thanks Apple for accessible iOS products

Thu, Sep 15, 2011


When it comes to music, few names elicit as much respect as Stevie Wonder. The musical powerhouse is responsible for funky jams like Superstition and timeless classics like I just called to say I love you.

What makes Stevie Wonder’s musical accomplishments even more impressive is that he’s been blind since a young age on account of a bout with retinopathy of prematurity which causes retinal detachment in premature babies.

Wonder’s bio aside, the musical legend this past weekend took some time out of his set to thank Steve Jobs for devices like the iPhone and iPad on account of Apple making them so easy to use and accessible to people with disabilities.

And I want you all to give a hand to someone that you know whose health is very bad at this time… his company took the challenge in making his technology accessible to everyone. In the spirit of caring and moving the world forward – Steve Jobs. Because there’s nothing on the iPhone or iPad that you can do that I can’t do. As a matter of fact, i can be talking to you, you can be looking at me, and I can be doing whatever I need to do and you don’t even know what I’m doing. Yeah!
