Not much else to say that hasn’t been said better elsewhere.
I really started creating digital content once I got my first Mac, a now ancient PowerBook G4 (clocked slower than my current phone, imagine that). I first got into Flash games by creating stopmotion animation, and I got into that because I enjoyed video editing, thanks to in no small part by Apple’s focus on media creation with iLife and FireWire (an utter God-sent during the time of DV cameras).
So here’s to (as The Onion playfully puts it) the last American who knew what the heck he was doing.
@Brad: Firewire sure,but thunderbolt is in a class by itself.
Twitter CEO Dick Costolo expresses this very well:”Once in a rare while, somebody comes along who doesnt just raise the bar, they create an entirely new standard of measurement.”
Thanks, Steve… 🙁
idead…… sorry I just had to
even if not everyone liked apple, everyone KNOWS that the world has lost a great contribution. 🙁
Rest in Peace, Steve.
Two days ago, I saw an headline in the newspaper saying “TO MILLIONS, HE WAS STEVE”. Confused, I read on. Sadly, I found out that Steve Jobs was dead. I was always more of a windows, it’s even what I’m typing on now. But my mom’s Mac was always faster, better, and everything would work again if I deleted and re-installed. I thank Steve for a great computer, and for being a person that changed America, maybe even the world. Thank you and rest in peace, Steve.
