Steve Jobs: dead at 56

Steve Jobs: Rest in iPeace

I’m writing this on a MacBook Pro that I’ve had for more than two years — longer than any Windows laptop I’ve owned (and I’ve had several: about one every eight to fifteen months). I just checked my e-mail, Groupons, and FB on my iPhone, which I consult obsessively every ten minutes; and I lust after an iPad so that I can get my magazines digitally and read my blog subscriptions without squinting.

Feel free to be a Mac or a PC (which is almost as silly as being Team Jacob or Team Edward), but both Bill Gates and Steve Jobs have fundamentally changed the world we live in: the ways we communicate, acquire knowledge, and are entertained. How many people can say that?

Thanks, Mr. Jobs. You’ll be missed.
