Apple Founder Steve Jobs Passes!

Steve Jobs has passed after a long battle with cancer.  I am saddened.  I had just purchased another IPOD. I loved watching the battle between Apple computers and Microsoft.  Bill Gates may have won the war of attrition by flooding the market with PC'S and his windows operating system but Steve Jobs made sure that the personal computer was ICON based.  Even the PC is now ICON based. 

If you want to do graphics, or music the MAC is just the standard of excellence.  But to me Apple's and Steve Jobs greatest achievements are PIXAR, where he helped revolutionize cartoons and the ITUNES/IPOD system that blew the doors off the music business after Napster.

The Music business railed against file sharing, stating that no one would buy music online when they could get it for free.  Jobs created a system that sold singles for 99 cents and allowed you to store it and use a player that was fun but most of all easy to use.  Record companies are making money again off the itunes network and best of all I can load up my own music and pick songs I like not just the whole wack album.

Thanks Steve! Glad you are not suffering anymore.
