Steve Jobs who gave the world Macs, iPhones, iPods, iPads passed away… I confess his name did not mean anything to me till recently… and now I feel a sense of loss.
I was a PC user for many years till I bought an iPOD for my daughter and an MP4 player for myself, approximately for the same price. And then I saw the DIFFERENCE between the devices… I say, Apple products are worth every penny.
And later, when I bought an iMac, I joined the cult of Apple – totally and irrevocably…till the time their product magic lasts (minus Steve Jobs).
For me Apple is very zen – the unbelievable technology, ease of use, beauty and Space – the quality of formless… The rest is just imitation, that essence is missing.
It’s difficult to express in words what makes Apple technology to stand way above anything else. I would say, they are the enlightenment among other computers. This is the brilliance of Steve Jobs.
