My son Connor called me on the phone moments ago. He was shocked that Steve Jobs had died. The depth of his reaction surprised me because first, he was not aware of Steve's battle with Cancer.
It also was clear that Connor was a devoted fan and someone who appreciated ALL that Apple gave his life.
His reaction was if he lost a close friend. Without knowing Steve, I also felt a great loss.
My Apple stories go back to writing BASIC software on the Apple II, IIe, and IIc computer for Prentice Hall. I also remember looking puzzled the first time I saw the first Mac computer. I did not know what to think about this vertical box with a small portal screen.
I have lots of fond memories about how Apple influenced my life.
As a former "lifetime PC" I switched completely to Mac hardware about 2 years ago and I have never looked back.
