Do you have a little i in your house?
We have five iPods, one of which belongs to Sydney who has known how to operate one before she was even in school.
We have the computer that has programs like iDVD and iWork (and, okay, I don't use that last program).
Yesterday I bought two songs using iTunes.
I'd like to get the new iPhone. Jason would like to get an iPad.
I talk about the Mac ads in my class when we're discussing audience analysis.
The little i is everywhere--a cultural icon, a brand that signifies something great ("insanely great!")--thanks to the innovation of one big I.
Even though I don't usually get emotional over the world losing businessmen, the world lost more than a business man today. It lost a creative genius who figured out what we wanted before we even wanted it.
"Here’s to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes… the ones who see things differently — they’re not fond of rules… You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they change things… they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."
Thank you, Steve Jobs.
