4 February 2015

Don't forget to pick up a copy of the award-winning PUSB on Tuesday night when the Sky Blues host Scunthorpe at the Ricoh Arena...

Coventry City's award-winning match-day programme PUSB has been brimming with fantastic content this season from your Sky Blues squad.

One of the features to gain plenty of recognition among City fans this season has been 'Changing Places' where we ask each City player if they could change places with someone, who would it be!?

It is one of the features which helped PUSB claim the League One programme of the year, from the Midlands Programme Club, along with many other exciting features.

Check out one of our Changing Places from earlier in the season with Ryan Haynes below and remember, PUSB will be available around the Ricoh Arena for our next home clash with Scunthorpe, where we have plenty more fresh and exclusive interviews!


Who would you change places with?

If I could pick someone from history, it would be Steve Jobs.

Why Steve Jobs?

Because he invented something, he added something to the world! There will always be something Apple, that is his, the most advanced technology has come from his head! Obviously before he died he was such a massive entrepreneur and a genius, so I would swap places with him because of his mark on the current technology of the world.

If you could pick any of his qualities for yourself what would they be?

Well before he died he always seemed to be chilled out despite being in a fierce industry, so I think I'd have his ability to not take things seriously, life is about having fun and you can't be serious all the time, and I think he did that despite being in a stressful position.

What is your best memory of him? 

Well I remember a speech he did on the new iphone at the time and that was incredible, but him creating the iphone which has changed how we look at technology!

If you could ask him one question what would it be?

Well, my girlfriend locked me out of my phone and I was locked out for so long, could you or is there anything happening to create a technology that stops certain people from touching your phone!?

PROFILE - STEVE JOBS

Occupation: Entrepenuer, Apple CEO

Biography: Steve Jobs co-founded Apple Computers with Steve Wozniak. Under Jobs' guidance, the company pioneered a series of revolutionary technologies, including the iPhone and iPad.

After school, Jobs enrolled at Reed College in Portland, Oregon, but he dropped out of college after six months and spent the next 18 months dropping in on creative classes at the school.

In 1974, Jobs took a position as a video game designer with Atari. But in 1976, when Jobs was just 21, he and Wozniak started Apple Computer. The duo started in the Jobs family garage, and funded their venture by Jobs selling his Volkswagen bus.

Jobs and Wozniak are credited with revolutionising the computer industry by making the technology smaller, cheaper and accessible to everyday consumers. Wozniak conceived a series of user-friendly personal computers, and with Jobs in charge of marketing, Apple initially marketed the computers for $666.66 each. The Apple I earned around $774,000. Three years after the release of Apple's second model, the Apple II, the company's sales increased by 700 percent, to $139 million. 

In 1980, Apple Computer became a publicly traded company, with a market value of $1.2 billion by the end of its first day of trading.
Since then the company has continued to evolve and produce new and intuitive products, but on October 5, 2011, Apple Inc. announced that its co-founder had passed away. After battling pancreatic cancer for nearly a decade, Steve Jobs died in Palo Alto at 56-years of age.

FACT: Steve Jobs was actually diagnosed with dyslexia
