I’m sure you’ve all seen the sad news that Steve Jobs died yesterday at 56. I’ve always admired Steve and his work at Apple, NeXT and Pixar. I remember being really affected by the original Think Different ad back in the 90s. It helped get me interested in the Mac and that was a snowball that grew and grew until I quit my day job to found ThinkMac Software back in 2005. I wouldn’t have this job, or be sitting here with my lovely Mac, iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, if it wasn’t for that man. He made computers, music, phones and tablets and everything he devoted his energies to easier, more enjoyable and more rewarding. I’m deeply grateful for his contributions to the technology industry and the world as a whole. I think he taught us all that we should strive for perfection in everything we do and that we don’t have to accept compromise.
