Apple’s founder Steve Jobs is gone, but his protégés are thriving in China. Apparently, the bosses of leading Chinese smartphone makers have adopted Jobs’ taste for dressing, presentation and even his way of talking. Chinese netizens have added “-bs” to the last names of three men who are emulating Jobs: Lei Jun, CEO of Xiaomi; Jia Yueting, CEO of LeTV; and Luo Yonghao, CEO of Smartisan.

AllChinaTech has collected two sets of images comparing the CEOs and what they’ve said about Jobs.

What they think of Jobs

“I remember that Bill Gates once referred to himself as a second Jobs. Jobs has influenced two decades – no one can compete with him! ” – Lei Jun on Weibo.

“Apple has not been making any revolutionary innovations. I’m disappointed, ” – Jia Yueting on Weibo.

“Jobs is not that special. Whatever he had, I’ve got it too,” – Luo Yonghao said at a Smartisan product launch.
