Jobs, who is of Syrian-American origin, presents a rather symbolic example. Why? Because, in a way, this innovator has repeated outstanding achievements of his ancestors in the Middle East. As you know, during the Dark Ages great Arab, Persian, and Turkic scientists made a substantial contribution to mathematics, physics, chemistry, etc.

Incidentally, one of them — a polymath Al Farabi — was born on the territory of the modern South Kazakhstan. His life and works were dedicated to astronomy, theory of music, sociology, logic, etc. Al Farabi died in Damascus, Syria. Therefore, to some extent, «Apple»’s founder has implicit ties to Kazakhstan.
