Yet today a man died who had a big impact on my life. On millions of lives around the globe.
I am a technophile. Some would call me nerd. That’s fine. I love technology and I love new gadgets. For me Steve Jobs was the King of Cool Gadgets.
For me he changed my everyday life turning my phone into a direct line to the whole world in the palm of my hand, wherever I went. Others have created the ways in which to interact with the world at large – Google, Twitter, Facebook. But thanks to Steve Jobs I can have these wherever I am. If I see something cool I can take a picture of it and load it up to show my friends and family straight away. I have the support of a whole writing community with just a press of my finger.
I’ve read many articles on Steve Jobs today. Not everyone loved him – no one goes through life and certainly has the level of success that he had without some toes being stepped on. To those toes I say thanks because look at the result. Sorry about your toes.
A lot of the articles called him a Visionary. He was and the vision he had for us was fantastic. Imagine that being your legacy. Imagine that is how people remember you. And he will be remembered.
All I can say is Thank You Steve Jobs, because of you I have learned things I never would have and I have connected to people that I would never have spoken to.
For humans connection is key. Steve Jobs gave us a way to connect with each other. Thank you Steve. RIP.
