ever since i knew what a personal computer was, there was never any question that i would ever own anything but an apple- a design driven product envisioned by a man who inherently understood that form and function are equally important, and that neither can be divorced from the other, without sacrificing both. from my first desktop the size of a microwave, to my first ipod, seemingly the size of my current laptop (pictured and still working after much abuse, btw), to my brand new(ish) shiny, iphone, i have loved every apple product i've ever purchased, and all have truly enhanced my life in both form and function. i can't think of any other product or brand i can say that about, so thank you, steve- you've cost me a lot of money over the years, but i don't regret spending a penny of it. your legacy lives on

oh..me too....me too... I've been dreading this day. I have always been mac all the way. No other computer for me...ever. I'm so sad for his family and for the world. All the things we'll never see because this visionary is gone.

Me, too... we have lost a great human being and American hero.

It is not often that I shed a tear for someone I do not know personally....but I did for Mr. Jobs. End of an era. I hope his legacy keeps on going....and going.
