I feel lucky to have a high-tech Dad who reads a lot and knows what’s out there before almost everyone else.
I was in high school when I started using the computer. My dad gave us this Macintosh computer in 1984, and life has never been the same again.

Macintosh 128k

I had battles with the computer teacher in college because we were forced to use a PC, which wasn’t PC with me.
Even my kids went straight to Mac, although they are “ambidextrous”—they also enjoy the HP Touchsmart I won in a media launch 🙂

My son thought he was Spiderman. Posing with the old Mac before we sold it in 2005.

The Mac is really part of our family

This is the Mac I’m using right now. Purchased in 2009 at the A.Shop. It is my daily companion.

And for this I have to thank my Dad and Steve Jobs. I feel strangely sad and depressed that Steve Jobs died today. But as my friend Kitty says, “What do you expect him to do? Live forever?”

It’s going to be hard to get anything done today but I have to pry myself out of bed and eat something.
Steve Jobs, you have changed my life forever. God bless you.

Steve Jobs

Apple.com is my Safari’s homepage, I got shocked when I I opened my browser early in the morning yesterday and saw that picture of him on their welcome screen 🙁 Pansin ko, pati yun very simple, sleek and straight to the point ang goodbye message sa kanya ng company. I love Apple (and Pixar!) <3

His passing will surely be remembered. He’s already a legend … his legacy remains …

I don’t have any iSteve gadget because I’m a certified PC guy but I admire what he did for Apple. He’s a visionary and a design guru that incorporated aesthetics into Apple’s product. The popularity of Apple products these days is his legacy.

iSAD, too, when my friend told me he passed away. I quickly checked twitter and there it was. It was like I knew him personally. He will always be remembered for being a genius and a visionary. Rest in peace, Steve Jobs!

I just want to share my blog post dedicated to Steve Jobs….

We will not die without all these gadgets but with them we have a
choice. Life seemed both complex and simple with technology but it is
just amazing that there is person like Steve Jobs whose innovations have
changed our lives.

I am also feeling sad and depressed.  I don’t even remember crying like this when Princess Diana died. 🙁

I have always been a fan since I first started using the Mac in  ’95.  Between my husband and me, we have an apple orchard of products!

Steve Jobs, iThankYou.

Nakakatuwa to see your kids as babies (well sorta) with their lolo and their dad. 🙂

I’m not a Mac user but I’ve always admired the genius of Steve Jobs. Plus, Apple products have such a great cross-generational appeal when it comes to design and functionality – from that itty bitty portable Mac (in the first pic, which is incidentally the first Mac I used at the STAR) to today’s MacBook Air and iPad. Talagang hindi lang pang-pamilya, pang iSport pa! 🙂

Katangi-tangi talaga si Steve Jobs.

Awww. iSad too for Steve Jobs. He’s such a compelling speaker, visionary extraordinaire. My 6 year old son is falling in love with everything Mac too. He’s saving stars from school to get his own iTouch. I wish though that he got to know more the man behind the brand that we love so much. This is such a heartwarming post. You have a lovely family. 🙂
