RIP Steve Jobs

When I wrote this, I felt in retrospect that it had an obit tone. Guess I was just a tad too early!

Given how much technology envelopes us today, Jobs has achieved 'immortality'  when he changed the face of technology and did it in such a colourful fashion. Technology was hardly cool, fashionable, sexy or something you could fall in love with, or give a standing ovation to, before Apple made it so. Companies tried for years to carry off the tablet, but no one could launch one successfully till Apple launched the iPad - and then everyone wanted one and every tech company wanted to launch a copy of it. Apple successfully made people pay for music downloads. But is Apple the man or the machine? We'll find out in the next few years...
