November 2, 2011 Remembering Steve Jobs

I’ve been an Apple user my entire life. My house has always had Macs, in fact (and my mom may correct me later on this) my first Apple memory was using her Macintosh II, playing around with the Kid Pix software. As I grew up, so did our computers, and in high school I was able to purchase a refurbished G3 iMac from the Apple Store in the Palisades Mall. The fan was so loud on that computer that my mom could tell if I was up too late even if my door was closed, but I loved that machine. It was my first Mac, and I had paid for it all by myself. I love my Apple products, from my iPhone, to the newest addition, my MacBook Air. Apple products make doing my job easier and feel less like work – and I can only hope that Apple continues down the path that Steve has guided the company along for all these years.

Just a few days after Steve Jobs passed away, I was in New York City, and took the opportunity to visit the 5th Avenue Apple Store to see how Steve’s life was being commemorated. I still find it hard to believe that the mind behind the products that I use on a daily basis is gone, but seeing how many other people’s lives were impacted in a similar way was comforting. What I saw at the Apple Store that day was numerous fans paying their respects to a vision of technology that is accessible and puts the user first. That’s what I’ll remember about Steve, and it’s what I hope Apple never forgets.
