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.
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.
