We’re going to miss you, Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs knew where its at.
Its a sad day for us all. The world has lost a true visionary and someone who managed to change our world for the good. I think everyone in the design industry will be particularly gutted that we’ve lost Apple’s Steve jobs. His work and inspiration has meant that our jobs are fun and easier to do, leaving us to concentrate on the creative rather than the technical. As well as all the macs and other apple products I’ve had the pleasure of owning over the years, the iphone has to be the most amazing product I’ve ever bought. It literally is the stuff we dreamed and talked about in the playground back in the early 80′s. All my music collection in my pocket? Video? Phone? Games? Apps? Internet, WTF!! Its even lasted longer than any phone I’ve ever had to boot (I’m still running a 3Gs without any protective cover and its works as good as the day I got it) Blows my mind what an achievement it is.
But Steve jobs is more than Apple, there’s alot more he achieved in his life and he’s a real inspiration to me and no doubt everyone else. A great man.
