Steve Jobs statue to be erected in Budapest

Steve Jobs' death has many fans of Apple and companies that worked with and admired Apple and its co-founder Steve Jobs remembering the contributions he made to the tech world. In Hungary a software firm called Graphisoft has announced that it will be erecting a large bronze statue of Jobs in Graphisoft Park.

The statue will be erected on December 21 and is intended to celebrate the vision and leadership of Jobs. Jobs and Graphisoft founder Gabor Bojar met in 1984 when Graphisoft had unveiled the ArchiCAD 3D design software for the Apple Lisa computer. Jobs apparently offered marketing and financial support for the company.

The statue is being made by sculptor Erno Toth and shows Jobs in his trademark clothing. The bronze Jobs is wearing the mock turtleneck, jeans, and sneakers along with the round glasses and stubbly beard Jobs sported. The stature shows Jobs with one hand out holding a device that looks like an iPhone. The US Patent Office Museum has a Steve Jobs exhibit.
