Steve Jobs 1955-2011

Family

Had originally thought to post today about Apple’s media event yesterday and some of the awesome capabilities of the newest iPhone, etc. Was wowed about the partnership with WolframAlpha. But that has now been eclipsed by the news that the world has lost Steve Jobs. As Apple computer users through the decades we have appreciated the effects of his vision for what personal computers can be. But beyond that, we have admired his class and his enthusiasm for life. We definitely feel as if we have lost a personal friend today.

    We couldn’t help but think about that speech which we had listened to recently. We keep coming back to the messages therein and pondering them. It does feel like we’ve lost a friend. But our lives are better for having known him.
