I still remember my awe at my first ipod. It changed my life. I was never one for much music. However, the number of lectures, podcasts, speeches I began to listen to thanks to the ipod, multiplied several times over. I was benefitting so much from it, that eventually each and everyone of my family members (my brother, my mom, dad, wife) began to own one (sometimes two or more). That has been the story with each and every Apple product that I have owned. After I got my Macbook, I began blogging, podcasting more than before. With the ipad I have been reading more than before.They have helped me become more me. The “i” before each Apple product is not misplaced. It does indeed help each reach into or express one’s truly self.
What a briliant individual to design tools that work seemlessly well across ages, generations and cultures. Wait a go Steve. Will miss you dearly.
I have been watching Steve Jobs videos over the past two days. Here are a few of my favourite short ones:
Focussing is about saying NO.
Brilliant Video. Just 3 mins long
If you enjoyed that there’s another 5 minute bit from the same gathering that’s worth watching here.
Steve Jobs Tells us a Secret
That was interesting, never knew that’s the way it happened.
Death is life’s best invention
A one minute excerpt of his famous Stanford Speech
If you have not heard his Speech, drop everything and do it now from here.
