I was heartbroken to hear of Steve Jobs' death yesterday. My first computer was a Mac and I've been an unwavering Apple groupie ever since. Steve's vision and ingenuity changed how I communicate and go about my daily life. The products he created made my journey into the world of technology intriguing and fun. It's so rare that a single person has such a seminal impact of the lives of individuals. His passing is a great loss for us all. He will be missed.

I felt like I lost a good friend because in essence he is a part of our lives every day. I'm typing this on my Mac with my iPhone next to me. May his family be blessed in the days to come and carry on in his humble ways.
