I am sad today on hearing about the death of Steve Jobs. He was an inspiration to me. I used his first personal computer in 1984, ie, Apple II. I continued to use Macintosh till 1987. He was master inventor, father of inventions, champion of user interface, and blender of convenience and aesthetics with machine and technology. I have keenly observed him since 1984 and consider him as the smartest techie in the world who single handedly ushered the revolution of personal computers. Son of a syrian muslim hailing from Homs, he was given up for adoption at birth. He would be known for his exceptional ingenuity and his ever evolving self-image. He shocked almost in every phase of the growth of his company and industry with his vision recognized by his execution.
I am sad today at his loss. Where is my iphone?
