Remembering


A sad day for everyone at Apple and for all of us who admired what Steve Jobs created in a life cut short.  As a former Apple employee I can say it was the finest company I've ever had the pleasure of being part of.  He will certainly be missed.   Last January, our first day in Paris, we headed to the Apple Store Opéra.  It was a thrill to see it first hand.

Some people change the world, and he was one of them. Sad to see how such fantastic people die young, when others, much less fantastic, live long..

That's beautiful, V. I've just been watching his Stanford commencement speech again. So inspirational and profound. It's a sad day. Bless him.

Wonderful tribute to this genius of a man... He changed our lives and did it in elegantly designed packages.

Nice post, Virginia. He was a highly creative man. He came up with products we didn't know we wanted but now can't live without, he did so with clean and sleek industrial design, and he produced remarkable results for his investors.

I was never a fan of Apple products for a variety of reasons. Too bad about Steve Jobs, though.

Alexa said...

Nicely done, V. I have more than my share of Apple products, and I have to say that my many dealings with Apple employees have always been a total pleasure. I wish the company continued success—but his are some un-fillable shoes, I'm afraid.

He opened our world to new possiblities that will only get better because of him. He and his team made "history".

Silver Strands said...

Yes. Sad day for all.

On a happy note - I love your blog!

Virginia-

Your photo and comment is the first one that brought tears to my eyes today. And I've been on my MacBook Pro for hours reading about Steve Jobs.

Virginia said...

Roseann, I"m touched as I struggle daily for the right words. After working for Apple, even though it was for just a few months, I was saddened. Steve Jobs has left a legacy for the tech world but I think more for the way a business SHOULD be run.

Thank you all for your nice comments today. And for my Paris friends, put this Apple Store on your list . It's a must see.

Hi Virginia,

Such a sad day indeed, and a wonderful tribute to a very talented man. One of the first computers I had was the blue McIntosh, which I loved and have been getting them ever since.
So user friendly.
