22 years ago, Steve Jobs released an ad called “Think Different.”
Jobs told us, “Here’s to the crazy ones. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo.”
Meet our rebels with no respect for the status quo.
