Farewell Steve Jobs

I’ve just read that Steve Jobs has died. Though not the topic I intended for today’s blog entry, let’s take a break from that to thank Mr. Jobs.

He was only 56 years old. What a lot he put into those years!  From Apple computers to the Mac to the iPod to the iPhone and most recently the iPad — even the short-lived NeXT computer –, he consistently and intently created, innovated and designed beautiful products that responded to the needs of our daily lives. He raised the bar time and again.

We’ll miss his vision and for keeping us on the edge of our chairs for his next venture.

    I agree, of course. He was one of those special people who don’t come along that often. We were fortunate to be here at the same time to enjoy his vision.

    I’m not an Apple junkie, but there’s no denying the utility and beauty of the devices he created. And his Apple product launch presentations were exceptional. He led the way for Zuckerberg and Bezos in that area.

    One commentator noted that he was amazing at streamlining products and reducing the amount of visual clutter on them. If you think about it, that’s what so many libraries/shops/bookstores are trying to do. Visual appeal is so important in drawing people in and keeping them in. He taught us a lot about what people want in their environments and in their products. He was cool. I’ll miss him.
