Of course I found out of the passing of Steve Jobs yesterday via social media. Did anyone find out conventionally??
I’ve never been a big Apple person (save the Apple II+ we had when I was a little girl playing “raise the flags”). My current house is PC + Linux only; we’re Droid phone users. I do have an iPod, though. And I love it. But I hate iTunes. And my Droid is a pretty good music player itself. I refuse to get an iPad since it doesn’t have Swype and getting information onto the stinkin device is a royal pain.
Regardless of my Apple fan-boy status (or really lack thereof), I do think it is terribly sad that a human being has died. But, wow….the outpouring of grief is kind of crazy. I’ve seen lots of reporting on the world’s reaction, so thought I would give you a ‘live report’ from the Georgetown Apple Store (just a couple of blocks from the office). Not quite as crazy as some others, but definitely some mourning going on. Very interesting!
