Okay, the story of Apple CEO Steve Jobs passing away has been all around the internet, television, and radio all day and there isn’t much I could hope to add other than my own condolences and appreciation for everything the man accomplished in his short life. Yeah, 56 was way too young. As a designer/ illustrator my own twin brother, Chudd, relies heavily on his Mac (and so do I) for his illustrations and creative projects. Itunes, Podcasting, and iPods have become a large part of our lives and I promise you the iPod makes a 10 hour shift much easier to endure when it’s loaded with my own À la carte selections of songs and podcasts. Hell, even the very first computer I ever touched was an Apple. I learned basic and pascal programming on an old Apple IIe and Macintosh along with Chudd and Buttery Wholesomness in our junior year of high-school. And in the years since leaving high-school I have enjoyed the amazing animation work produced by Pixar and accepted these films as some of my favorite all time movies. It’s weird to think that I wouldn’t have had any of that if it weren’t for Mr. Jobs and his innovations. I may not be as tech savy as some other geeks but for me Steve Jobs has been and always will be a source of inspiration for what a single individual can achieve in a life time. And even though a lot of people bash Steve Jobs for some of the things he did while controlling Apple, with out a doubt he changed our world for the better and will be missed by fans like me.
