Remembering Steve Jobs
Today is a sad day not just to the Apple followers but too many of us in the tech community. It is hard to deny the impact that Apple and Steve Jobs has had on our lives. Take a moment today to think about how and where Apple was in your life.
For me I look back and I am sure to some degree I take these things for granitite. I remember back in grade school using an Apple computer to control a “turtle” to draw shapes and pictures. The school years would come and go and Apple computers would do everything from, teach me how to type and to find out where in the world Carmen Sandiego was. While in my senior year of high school I would get to use the Macintosh classic II. This little black and white system would be the first system I would use to design or create on. Sure I have a PC at home but it was what this MAC had to offer that kept my interest. Years later the iPod was the new Walkman and having that ability to take all my music with me would change the way I would view convenience.
Today with the iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad Apple has created the foundation of a new more “connected” information age and although I do not consider myself a Mac user I will take a moment of silence for the MAN and the company that have influenced so many over the years.
