When I first found out of Steve Job's passing (ironically, on my beautiful white iPhone 4), I was shocked and kind of in disbelief. It shouldn't have came in surprise; I knew he was fighting pancreatic cancer for a long time and I knew his resignation as CEO in August of this year meant that he didn't have much time left. But for some odd reason, I felt like someone punched me in the stomach. My eyes welled.
Usually when some famous person passes away, I do the mandatory "R.I.P. so and so" Facebook status and tweet and then move on with my life. However, this time, I just couldn't stop thinking about him (hence, the reason why I am writing this blog post). Why? Why do I feel as if someone I knew left me?
And then I thought about it. This man was a genius. He was a perfectionist, with an eye for beauty. He changed the way society runs today. His advancement in technology is ridiculous. I am not even going to go into how his products have impacted the way we live today, because if I did, you would probably spend the next hour trying to finish reading this blog post.
Rest in peace, Steve Jobs. You will be missed.
