I read somewhere this one guy saying that he found stupid seeing people cry over Steve Jobs’ death. He said something like ‘people should save their tears for when a person they know dies’.
I disagree. You should mourn the ones you love and Steve Jobs was loved.
Like everyone, I pay for my Apple products. Yet I know what was like to have a PC in 1997, so I can imagine a world without Steve Jobs. It’s a world trapped in a DRM Windows system or in a chaotic and scattered Linux OS. I tried it, I know.
Also, have you ever seen iPod, iPhone or iPad competitors? Yeah…
I love the Trackpad in my laptop. Can’t work without Aperture. Am lost (literally, not figuratively) without the iPhone.
So I cried.
Thank you Steve.
