I Know What I Know

RIP

I came home today with my brand new 13″ MacBook Air at around 4:00 and began setting it up so that I could take it to RMMLA with me in the morning. These days, setting up a new computer is pretty simple for me; most of the stuff I need is either easily downloadable, archived in Gmail, or in Dropbox.

While I was cooking dinner and downloading Evernote, I accidentally closed a browser window and quickly pressed command+N to open a new window.

I was greeted by the current Apple page. I gasped, looked across the table at Shelley, and said “Steve Jobs is dead.”

It is really difficult to imagine what the world would have been like without him. He gave us (i.e. everyone else) the mouse, the GUI, the Apple II, the Macintosh, the current placement of the keyboard on a laptop near the screen, the AIO design of the iMacs, the iPod, the iPhone, the iPad. And also Pixar,

Any one of these would have secured his place as one of the greatest innovators in history.

It is difficult to imagine that this one man so dramatically changed the world for the better.

RIP, Steve.
