Steve Jobs 1955-2011

That Steve Jobs had died was the first thing Ben, my 14 year old, said to me this morning. That’s how much of an effect he has had on all of us.

I’ve been a Mac (NEVER a PC) since my late college days. My first was a Classic, bought in the early 90’s i think. Back then running one programme at a time was the only way – certainly not the application bingo that I play on my dashboard today…

This brand and its products have been with me all the way through my working life as a trusted and always gorgeous tool. Now it manages to invade seemingly every other area too.

The man in his own words, “Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me… Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.”

Who knows what was to come.  RIP
