RIP, Steve Jobs.
I wrote twenty years' worth of fanfic on various Apple computers. Five books on the laptop I'm typing this entry on now. I think it's safe to say that without Steve Jobs and Apple Computers, I wouldn't be a published author. Sure, I've used Windows machines - at work, when I had no other choice - but I've never OWNED anything but a Mac.
I didn't know the man, but through his work and his vision for the future, I feel as if I did.
