It’s been a long while since I’ve posted here. Too long. And it’s a sad day to start.
Steve Jobs and Apple is the reason I got into computers. I started off using and developing on an old Apple II+ by Bell and Howell in 1983ish.
When the Mac was introduced in 1984, I begged my dad for one, and thankfully he got me one. The rest as they say is history.
I’ve seen Steve talk, both at WWDCs over many years and during my time at Apple in the Newton group – which was some good talks and some bad “we’re shutting you down” talks.
I respected every time he talked, both good and bad. He will be missed, but I have the upmost confidence in the team at Apple, some of whom I know.
And I have the upmost confidence in us, Apple developers, to uphold the “make your app as good as the Apple apps”.
Rest in peace Steve. I hope you are in Heaven now, meeting Jesus and all the great folks who have passed before you. I’ll look you up when I arrive.
