Que en paz descanse, Señor Steve Jobs. You made a tremendous impact in my life and many others.I bought my first Macintosh SE used (yes, I am old), while in school, as an investment. I paid a whopping $1,000 that at the time took up all the money I had saved. I quickly made it up by typing other student’s research papers for cash. It paid for itself because the only other way to get that paper/homework turned in was by typing it on a typewriter. And retyping it if you weren’t a great typist. And keep retyping after finding more errors. My little Mac could write and rewrite and save and print and reprint when necessary.
Typewriters, what memories… but a Mac with a dot matrix printer was more practical.
The rise of the use of personal computers and new ways of was incredible to witness. I even featured videos of the history of Apple and Microsoft in a college class many years ago.
Steve Jobs and Apple changed my life once again with my first smartphone – my iPhone. It is at my side all the time. It won’t be my last Apple product, I am sure. But, I will miss watching Steve Jobs roll out new products and push technology to new levels. May he rest in peace and his family find comfort.
