I should not write my post this week without first acknowledging the passing of Steve Jobs. I have often expressed my delight with the ‘i‘ devices. However, what I believe is most extraordinary about Steve Jobs is that he connected an entire universe with his inventions. All over the world people enjoy Apple products. He was Apple’s Rock Star. Every time he brought us something new, the response was phenomenal! We couldn’t wait to buy it, learn to use and enjoy it. And, the newest invention was immediately at the top of the computer charts! 🙂
Steve Jobs infused his creations with love and care, and we were the recipients of that love, and care. So, as I think about Steve Jobs, I’m feeling thankful that I have experienced his passion, his genius, his drive for perfection through his inventions. Yes, there are other inventions, but the way I see it he was the first to take the computer experience and convert it to personal entertainment with a business component.
He engendered diversity on a grand scale: young, old, various cultures, languages, professions. The list goes on and on. His influences and his footprints will remain forever on our universe.
