At the end of the summer, I commandeered the table and demanded that everyone in my family surrender their Apple devices for this picture. It was not planned in advance.
This does not include a couple more macbooks and a couple more iphones that were already packed away for drives home.
And more telling than this? There was not a single non-Apple device anywhere. No Droid, Blackberry, or Windows PC.
Steve Jobs changed the world. I’m genuinely saddened by his passing. And I hate the culture of celebrity and I’m no fan of rampant capitalism. But it’s a rare thing to see genius, drive and ambition so brilliantly focused in a single individual.
Back to my easel, with a little more oomph tonight. I might not survive my next drive to work.
