Remembering Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs made an impact on my life at a very young age, the day I got my first Mac. It changed my life, and now, more than ever, Apple has become a part of my daily life. More than that though, Steve Jobs inspired me to think differently, to take a different path, and embrace the creativity and passion inside of me. When I first heard the news that Steve had passed-away yesterday it impacted me much more than I thought it would. I stopped what I was doing and just sat there, thinking.

Immediately I thought of doing a blog post, sharing my feelings with all of you right-away, but it didn’t feel like the right time. Now that a day has gone by and I’ve had some time to reflect I thought I’d share my thoughts with all of you. When it comes to expressing feelings and emotions I think video is the next-best-thing to being there in person. So rather than writing a long blog post I’ve decided to share my reflections in a video.

Thank you Steve for your contribution to my life, you will be missed but never forgotten. Someday when I have kids of my own I can’t wait to teach them what I’ve learned from you. Goodbye to my mentor and lifelong hero – the world is a better place because of you.

    Yes, our lives are not merely about position and wealth but about the difference we make in the lives of others around us.

    Well said mate, I feel the very same way. We have lost a great person.
    I had a cry myself! šŸ™

    But what would have been even sadder is if he had not come along at all.

    My daily life uses Apple through the whole day and makes it that much better as well.

    Showing my age here, but I got my first Mac back in 1984 when the Mac first came out, I still have the original carry bag that it came in!

    I think Tim Cook will do a brilliant job as the new Apple CEO and has a very challenging time ahead of him.
