On the Passing of Steve Jobs

I've never been a big fan of Apple.  That really had nothing to do with Steve Jobs personally.  I'm not really a fan of the Apple business model either.  But, that doesn't mean I can't respect the contributions of Jobs to fields of personal computing and personal electronics.

I often tease friends about turning to the dark side as the seem to slowly covet a new Mac laptop or the iPhone.  While I don't see myself ever getting one of those devices, I have owned a couple of iPods.  I have thoroughly enjoyed the musical freedom that those devices have given me.

Without question, Jobs was an innovator, and his contributions will be sorely missed.
