Steve Jobs R.I.P.

I just learned of the death of Steve Jobs.  It is said that Steve Wozniak invented the Apple computer but Steve Jobs invented the Apple company.  Although I did not know Steve Jobs personally, I came to respect him greatly as a visionary.  He made his mark and the world, especially the world of technology, will miss him greatly.

In the ‘80s, I bought an Apple IIc “for my son”.  It was interesting but not quite what I needed or imagined.  Later I considered an original Mac but could not see how it could be programmed for engineering use.  I was correct in both cases but still missed the Apple/Mac experience.

I now have an iPhone and iPad.  The Mac looks ever more interesting, especially for photography.

Thanks, Steve.
