MacApple

A great man passed away just recently. He was a pioneer, a visionary, a man who dared to live his life his way, and in the process influence others' lives along the way. Steve Jobs lost his battle with pancreatic cancer but surely won his other battles and the war altogether as he lived a life that will be remembered most of all for what he imparted through his ideas and creations.

I only got to finally get my own Macbook last year after hesitating for a few years and deciding against the iPhone (I opted for a BlackBerry instead). The Clairvoyant and I now have 2 Macbooks and an iPad, with another one probably coming along soon. We quickly learned how to use the things thanks to superior user interface that is the trademark of Steve Jobs' products. The term "user friendly," after all, is something that applied and applies to Apple more than any other company.

For a nice article on Steve Jobs, one can read the Steve Jobs, 1955-2011 by Wired.com. Rest in peace Mr. Jobs, knowing you will continue to live in the Macbooks, iPhones, iPods and iPads, and hopefully those of this world who cared enough to listen and brave enough to live their lives unhindered.
