By now you have probably heard that Steve Jobs, at age 56 has passed away.
Am I an apple whore? Maybe.
Do I have an iPhone or an iPod or a Macbook?
Do I have an iMac and an iPad?
I like apple products because they work exactly like they were supposed to.
In high school, I had an after school job and when I was 18, I bought my first imac. It was the alien looking, long necked imac that would serve me for the next 7 years. I have to say, that neck made a robust handle. I know this because it moved house 7 times with me. I would pick it up by it’s neck and take it to the next place.
10 years later, I’m only my second imac and more recently, an iPad too. Steve Jobs designed products that are fun to use. The fact they look good too is a nice bonus. At least the iPad and iMac I have are fun to use. I can’t vouch for other Apple things.
So cheers to you Steve. I hope you did everything you hoped to do and that you are proud of your legacy.
Today I think I will wear a turtleneck in his honour.
I leave you with some of my favourite quotes from Steve Jobs. Set in the font Myriad (of course).
