Thank You

Thank you, Steve Jobs, for envisioning a way for the least geeky person the planet, me, to share a passionate hobby with others around the world.  Thanks for envisioning a device so simple and intuitive that even I could figure out how to use it....without really having to understand how all the technology works.  I'm typing this on my MacBook, the laptop that my truly geeky brother recommended I buy because my real interests are rather simple,  researching and reading online and connecting with others through email, I-chat and blogging.  I'm a middle-aged woman whose life has been enriched by the drive and passion of this man.  What an amazing life.  I wish for a world where more people have the freedom and opportunity to pursue their dreams and visions, great and small.

  1. What a lovely post... I agree entirely. I am typing this on my imac - my geeky friend (also apple lover) said I don't need a pc - apple is my friend. Every time I worry him about a virus I heard about he responds "don't forget; you have a mac". I too am turning 50 next year but as I am studying at uni I have had to juggle mac and pc and what do you know; I can do it!. Gone from knowing nothing to managing two systems! Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks!

    Steve Jobs had an amazing life and is an inspiration to people from many different parts of life... I like his quote "life is short; don't waste it living someone else's life" He gave so much.


Love your comments, opinions, advice and questions. I just ask that we all "play nice."
