Aside

Steven P. Jobs, 1955 – 2011

My thoughts and prayers are with Steve Job’s family, both immediate and work.

In 1987, I wrote my first report on an Apple. I worked at my high school newspaper on an Apple. The office I worked in at college was an Apple computer. I entered the business world and it was IBM only. In 2004, I bought my first iMac and I was back with Apple and I never looked back. When I started my own investment firm, I bought iMacs against the industry standard. I bought the first iPhone two days after it’s release. I have owned 2 MacBooks, 1 MacBook Pro, 5 iMacs, 3 iPads and 3 iPhones (not to mention the 5 iPods for my family). I made my 72 year-old dad buy an iPad for my 70-year-old mother, and she loves it. My son is watching Toy Story 3 (Pixar) as I type this.

Apple products have been there for most of my life. I wish the best to Apple the company, Steve’s family and the computing world.

We lost one of the great visionaries today. Every computer on every desk, every laptop at every coffee shop, every tablet everywhere was influenced by in a way by Steve. He’s left his mark on the world. If the goal was to leave this life better than you found it, Steve Jobs did just that. Thanks for encouraging us to “Think Different”.

Rest in Peace, Steve. May god bless your family during their time of loss.
