City in Brazil Renames Street to ‘Steve Jobs Avenue’

The Brazilian city of Jundiai has paid tribute to the late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs by renaming one of its streets to “Steve Jobs Avenue,” says Cult of Mac. The street in particular connects the smaller city of Jundiai with Sao Paulo, the largest city in Brazil. Moreover, it is the same street that Taiwanese manufacturer Foxconn plans to build its new iPad assembly plant.

The Jundiai city council proposed the street name change last October, the day after Jobs passed away, and the request was approved on March 27. Foxconn already operates an iPhone manufacturing factory in Brazil, evidenced by “made in Brazil” iPhones that have surfaced in the last few months.
