I just want to add my personal thanks to Mr. Jobs for waging the fight to empower people’s creative spirits.
Here’s a list of Apple products that made a difference in my life as a writer:
1. Macintosh, 1986--I write my graduate thesis on a Macintosh for which I traded my vintage Morris bicycle to an employee of the Apple Dublin store.Thanks, Steve, for continuing to believe that creative people deserve great tools.
2. Apple 1995—My mom gets a free Apple for opening a savings account at her local bank and gives it to me to help me bootstrap my start-up.
3. iBook-I still have my first laptop with the roller ball cursor. I can’t bring myself to give it away.
4. iPod Classic—My son has lovingly curated my collections, blending MC5 and the Clash to keep me ever-rocking while running or racing to catch a flight.
5. iPhone—My least favorite product, crappy battery life, glitchy, but still feels like a magic wand in my hand.
