Reflections on Steve Jobs

Tonight as I sat on the couch reading the news coverage on Steve Jobs’ passing, it struck me why I’m enamored with Apple’s products. It’s not that I’m a fanboy (okay, I might be on the edge of being one..) — it’s because of the culture set in place by Steve Jobs.

He didn’t just want to make the average run-of-the-mill beige box computer. It’s not that he just wanted to enter the mp3 player market. It’s not that he simply wanted a piece of the mobile phone market. It’s that he wanted to revolutionize by thinking different.

It’s that he was so meticulous about the products his company produced. It’s that he was so adamant about his ideals that he’d not waver.

As I sat tonight using my MacBook, iPad, and iPhone, it sunk in what Steve Jobs truly meant to the technological world.

RIP Steve.
