RIP Steve Jobs
I was just coming to post this. Everyone was just speculating if he was going to show up to the new Apple iPhone release yesterday, so I assume no one knew just how close he was to dying.
Living in the Bay Area I guess we were privy (privvy ??) to more information then most. Some time ago he sent around a letter telling everyone that he was no longer physically able to participate in the daily operations at Apple. The man was brilliant to be sure, but I can safely say while I respected him, I've never owned or used any of his products to the best of my knowledge. Not because I didn't like them, it's just that it was a little beyond my price range.
As a personal aside if anyone SHOULD be cryogenically frozen, it should be Mr. Jobs because he's someone who has made major impacts on our world and probably would've continued to do so. More so then Walt Disney or Ted Williams.
Fare thee well Mr. Jobs and thank you for everything….except I-tunes which for reasons I've never quite understood replicated all the music on my pc 4x and dang near crashed my system.
The Best Radio On Radio
Its strange and I am making a new entry here cause just yesterday I was listening to a talk radio show and they were talking about one of Apples new items that had for all intent and purposes an instant voice recognition that didn't need you to set up a bunch of bells and whistles for it to work. Apple under Jobs was a true pioneer in the computer industry.
I personally am very grateful for the mouse. The computer one – not the rodent.
Very sad news about Steve Jobs.
(He didn't invent the mouse though. The computer mouse was invented in the 1960s and shipped as standard with German computers in the early 70's long before Apple existed.)
Steve Jobs was a great entrepreneur and icon and built the Apple brand into a hugely successful company and he will be missed by millions. He made technology cool to an awful lot of people and further developed and popularized many existing technologies through his pioneering ability and vision. For example, the Ipod revolutionized portable music listening when it was launched in 2001. I remember struggling to sell Diamond Rio portable Mp3 players back in 1998 – it wasn't until Apple arrived on the scene with their version of the product years later that Mp3 players become the 'de facto' standard way to listen to music on the move. He did the same thing with the iPad more recently; various Tablets had been on the market for years but it took the iPad to ignite the market to bring the app manufacturers on board to produce the content that would make it a 'must have' device for millions. Steve Jobs had an amazing skill and talent.
Rest in peace.
