RIP, Steve Jobs
|This was a magic box.|
|Primitive thumb drive|
No ebooks, no computerized notes, nothing. It was like the Flintstones, only more primitive.
What I'm saying is, computers would have happened no matter what. But until Steve Jobs came along, they were exclusively the province of computer geeks; and the Internet was a sort of Wild West, populated by coders and music pirates. Jobs took this frontier and turned it into DisneyWorld. He put the Internet literally in our pockets and transformed it into a playground for everyone, even technophobes like myself. He connected the world. It's awesome, the changes that have happened in 30 years.
|This didn't used to be a cool look, you know...|
Except you, David - don't even think about it.
