I’d like to know why people are turning Steve Jobs’s death into a Mac vs. PC battle. If you knew your facts, you’d know that he contributed greatly to Intel, whose products are used in both Macs and non-Macs (since, technically, Macs are Personal Computers as well), and he also contributed…
As Steve’s health declined it wasn’t just him I feared we were loosing. The health of the world seemed to go with him. We are now without the brilliant Man, the drive, and vision that has helped push technological growth with the momentum we have come to suspect. I mourn the loss for the health of the worlds technologic growth.
Many people don’t start to realize all he did for us.
Would we even have the internet if it wasn’t for Jobs? After all the WWW was invented by a man using a NEXT computer.
What about the state of animated movies? Thank you for seeing something in that small company called pixar.
The mouse. The 3.5 inch floppy. The graphical user interface so I don’t spend all day with command prompts!!! Thank you for seeing Xerox’s genius when they themselves had no idea what to do with it.
The first consumer available digital camera!
Without you Steve, how much longer would it have taken for this world to have these wonderful tools?
Thank you for that push to merge digital back with the analogue! Thank you for always upholding to your philosophy of tech being a bicycle for our brains!
