Why do many of us feel so sad about the passing of Steve Jobs? He was a remarkably successful entrepreneur and a visionary in terms of product design but he is scarcely a Thomas Edison. I don’t have a particularly clear answer to this question.
I am a recent convert to the world of MAC. The iPhone and iPad operated as ‘gateway drugs’ and led me to a total switch from Windows-based computing. It is great technology and I guess I associate its elegance and supreme functionality with Jobs.
Goodbye Steve. You were a remarkably innovative person who died at what is a somewhat low age. I feel sad tonight reflecting on your passing. I feel like I knew you though I didn’t.
