Steve Jobs: In Memoriam

The first time I encountered a Mac was back in the 80s, in grad school, studying an "obscure" discipline that everybody said was sure to keep me "hungry" for life. I was "hungry and foolish," but I managed to scrape together enough to buy my first Mac, with a "huge," 20 megabyte built-in hard disk. Writing my doctoral dissertation on it, I was hooked. Over 2 decades and 5 books later (all written on Macs), my life revolves around products that Steve pioneered. As a professor at a major university, I talk endlessly to my students about the world of Apple, and I've probably sold a few over the years. The least I could do for the best computer/ hi-tech company on the planet. We'll miss you, Steve!
