Steve Jobs 1955-2011



I have to start off saying that I am a PC. Always have been, and probably always will be. It is what I know, and what I love.
That said, one cannot deny the impact that Steve Jobs has had on the world of personal computing, and technology in general. He was a true visionary, and just a cool dude.
The Apple II was the very first computer I ever used. I fondly remember playing Oregon Trail on it when I was in grade school, and typing up short stories on the black screen with white pixels.

Today's announcement of the death of Steve Jobs does not come as a shock, as he has been dealing with cancer for a very long time. It is still one of those things that make you pause. The death of an icon will always strike a sad note, even when it comes after a long illness.

My condolences go out to Steve's wife and four children, and the entire family at Apple. A black turtleneck and jeans will never be the same.

Joe Tanaka Chiang of Toy-A-Day has re-released his Steve Jobs free printable as a tribute to this great man who had the brains of a geek and the heart of an artist. I thought I might share this with my readers because I think it is a fun and creative tribute for a fun and creative man.
