Steve Jobs and I were born in the same year.
He passed away yesterday and left us with new communication tools that changed the way we interact. The concept of a desktop computer became reality, improved, got sleeker, faster, contained more memory and stood alone in the market. Apple cornered the market with their closed systems and moved forward making up rules as they went along.
When it comes to computers, you either use a Mac or a PC. A pc can be a Dell, HP, Acer, Toshiba, Sony, Compaq or a dozen others. A Mac is an Apple Macintosh…period!
Steve Jobs was known for his creativity and focus and entrepreneurship. The end result was a successful American company that continues to create media and communication tools that stand alone.
I would have liked to have met him. May he rest in peace.
