Having been born into an Apple family, I am quite saddened by the event that happened on October 5. As many know, Steve Jobs, the former CEO of Apple Computers, was announced dead. This is a big deal to me because I have grown up with Apple products and have grwon to have a major respect for the company. My friend even called and asked me if we were mourning at our home since Jobs had died; we didn't even know by the time she had called.
I am mostly sad about Jobs' death due to the fact that we have lost a brilliant mind and incredible innovator. A CNN article quotes Apple, "Steve's brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives," Apple said in a statement. "The world is immeasurably better because of Steve." And I would have to agree. Although people may say technology is ruling our lives, it has been and immense impact on our lives whether that be for better or worse, and I mostly thank Jobs for that. He came up with so many new, useful, and creative products that much of the world is using as I write this. He has made an impact that is immeasurable and I am sad to see him go.
