In 2006, I decided to purchase a 13″ white MacBook, the first of its kind to have Intel-based CPUs. My first ever Apple product.
I made this purchase because an Intel-based CPU meant I could dual-boot to Windows, for gaming, and use the OSX side of things for my media-related work.
Fast-forward five years and the machine is still in use, and it still works just as good as the day I got it. That MacBook saw me through all of university, helping me learn the ins and outs of much of the Adobe Creative Suite, learn how to edit videos with Final Cut Pro, and to develop iOS apps. I have since purchased an iMac, an iPhone, an iPad, and a MacBook Air, and it’s not easy to keep my loyalty toward a single tech company.
Steve, you were a legend, a hero, and an amazing role model. It sucks that you left the world so early, but your legacy shall live on through Apple.
As usual, I don’t deal very well with sad news, so I leave you with a bit of humour that I hope will put a smile on your face.
Rest in peace, Steve.
