I've never owned an Apple product...it was always a "someday I'll try one of those...whatevers"...yet I always was impressed watching Steve Jobs take the stage and present his latest dream and passion. If the true measure of success is loving what you do then Mr. Jobs gave the world a wonderful example of how to live life success-fully. John Ireland

My 1st computer was an Apple IIe and my techie dad bought all the components in Singapore - assembled them from scratch for me & brother. I can still remember vividly the Space Invader games, the green "LV" monochrome screen and the retro 5 1/4 " floppy diskettes. & chunky external drive

It was awesome and it was an Apple who brought affordability in home computing to the masses. Then after, it went to a doldrums with me and never own another Apple product until my iPhone came along. That was a lapse of 2 decades between my 1st and 2nd Apple product!

Why do I come back to Apple? It was Steve & his team's visionary products that caught my fancy again!

RIP Steve. Thanks for for my 1st DIY PC (thanks to my good old dad) & I still have it in my attic.

...only wish he had a normal lifespan to see what else he would have come up with.
Like Henry Ford or Robert Oppenheimer, Steve Jobs was a true visionary who unleashed forces upon the world that could not have been foreseen and changed it forever.
RIP,
