Farewell, Steve Jobs

The entire world lost a visionary today. 

I've been a Mac since touching my first computer in 1988, an Apple IIc. If you're a Mac, you just know why we are how are. It's like being a pug owner. People say why? Because once you use a Mac or have a pug, you are hooked. 

Thank you, Steve Jobs, for having the imagination to dream bigger than anyone else. 
Thank you for teaching the world that an adopted kid who dropped out of college and was fired from the company he founded and refused to accept no as answer could still change the world. 

Your lowercase i, unassuming but powerful, revolutionized not just the lives of computer nerds, but the lives of soldiers who can FaceTime their families from a war zone, grandparents on the other side of the world from their grandkids, moms and daughters and students. 

You had amazing dreams and you had the determination to make your dreams come to life. 

You leave a legacy that will never be forgotten.


  1. Thanks for this tribute to an amazing man. I have only used iPods from Apple, but have been recently thinking about an iMac and an iPad. He was indeed a visionary and the world has lost a light with his passing. :(
