Steve Jobs portrait appeared in Vitebsk

A team of Vitebsk artists have decided to decorate courts of dwelling areas with portraits of cult persons. The central image of Vitebsk street art is a person widely known and respected among young people. "We aim to draw attention of young people to self-development, and constant moving forward," said one of the artists.
Graffiti works of Hood Graff Team seem to be not just pictures but artistic messages.
Personal computer revolutionist Steve Jobs has become a hero of such message.
Motivating quote: Stay hungry. Stay foolish.

Meanwhile, Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC'14) took place last week at the Moscone West convention center in San Francisco. 

Within the conference new OS X 10.10 Yosemite and iOS 8 were presented. Apple announced launch of these new operating systems this summer. The design of Yosemite with a flat design of icons and background looks similar to iOS 7. "This is the fastest adoption ever of any PC operation system in history" - said the current Apple CEO Tim Cook.

Apple also introduced a new iCloudDrive service that may become a serious competitor to Dropbox and Google Drive. All files are available inside Finder and are auto-synced across all user’s Mac devices, as well as on iOS and Windows. 
Now files can be shared between mobile devices and Macs using AirDrop. 
Touch ID application programming interface (API) is now available to app creators for using in third-party applications.

A new programming language Swift was announced – up to date, with security features – that is 1.5 times faster than Objective-C and 2.8 times faster than Python. 

Among the other software items announced by Apple are HealthKit and HomeKit platforms, family sharing feature and a number of other features and updates in both OS X and iOS.
This year Apple has not introduced any new devices, and the audience walked away “without a single piece of new hardware”.
