End of a pioneer
Sunday, October 30, 2011 | Author: Dav

I've been putting this off for a while, mainly because I didn't want to jump on the bandwagon. So, here it is. RIP Steve Jobs (February 24, 1955 – October 5, 2011).

There are so many photos out there of him, and some of them have been used on every site possible. Instead, I'm opting to have this photo, to remember him by. Taken in 1979 (wow, special year that eh?), you cant but help think that he's a natural born sales person. A pioneer even.

His passing was pretty much a shock, mainly due to the fact that the new iPhone was launched not days before.

I've never really been a fan of Apple products, but my issues with Apple were mainly centered around the proprietary way Apple's products worked. iTunes nearly cost me my sanity once, so never again I promised myself. Did their products work? Yes. Did the products do things in a new, unique, human way? Yes. And that's where Jobs excelled. That's where I think Apple excelled. Pushing the envelope.

Let's see who picks up the mantle now.

Jobs - the man with a vision, the money to pull it off, and the insane mad drive to make things happen

Huge loss. Would love to read the full autobiography when it comes out. For now, there's a great review here.

Oh my life is changing everyday
Every possible way
Though my dreams, it’s never quite as it seems
Never quite as it seems
