100 Words, 100 Days: Day 80. On Steve Jobs.

Steve Jobs 1955 - 2011

I know many people who swear by Apple Macs. Having never owned one myself, this particular pleasure passed me by. But I love my iPhone. Without it, I’m sad to say, my leisure time just wouldn’t be the same. So it was with some distress that I learned last night of the death of Steve Jobs, the man behind one of the most progressive companies the world of business has ever seen. I wish to join the rest of the community in offering my condolences to his family, friends and co-workers. Apple will miss his guiding hand badly. R.I.P., sir.

  1. A visionary who combined being a great technologist and a great industrialist. I imagine Steve is looking down on us from the cloud from somewhere with fantastic wi-fi reception. RIP.

  2. I was never an Apple computer fan myself. Back in the day when I got going with computers, users divided into two camps, PC vs. Apple, and each camp sneered at the other.
    Since then I’ve come to think of the Apple computer as the best for music and art, and the PC for the computer geek who likes to fiddle with the insides.
    I don’t have an Apple, either, but I do yearn after the iPad.
    Jobs may not have been a very nice guy (or at least perceived that way), but his innovation and drive put Apple on the map, and kept it there.
