    steve jobs, rest in peace 

    there were walkmans before apple and people loved them, but Steve Jobs brought it into the future

    there were computers before apple and people loved them, but Steve Jobs made them reasonable and reliable

    my first computer was the Apple IIc, the computer i first bought for the web was an Apple 6300cd

    the computer i am using right now is a MacBook Pro, the only laptop i could ever imagine owning right now.

    my phone is an iPhone, the only phone i could imagine using

    and my next big purchase will be an iPad

    with that said, I never thought of Jobs as being a genius insomuch as i thought pretty much everyone else slacked.

    why did Michael Dell never get it together after he had his moment in the sun

    why couldnt Microsoft’s Zune adjust to its initial asskicking?

    and why does it feel like every other tablet out there is just a poor man’s iPad

    a second rate ripoff, a counterfeit, a dirty fraud?

    perhaps because Apple was an ideal that the products had to live up to

    while everyone else simply made products that acted and felt

    simply like products.

    in Heaven tonight i hope Kurdt and Jimi greeted Jobs

    by wearing white turtle necks and jeans.

    hey tony how do you like people who use iPads for taking photos outside? 

    i dont believe i am a libertarian, but the older i get the more i believe in what they’re talking about.

    i may have voted for one or two in the past, but that doesnt mean i knew what i was doing.

    anyways, deep down i believe that this is the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave

    and we should just let people do whatever they wanna do as long as it doesnt harm other people.

    for example, i smell the smoke of people with their cigarettes and cigars and its not gonna kill me, so they should be allowed to smoke.

    sure we have been conditioned to wince whenever we smell that second hand smoke,

    but if a pretty girl kissed you real nice right after someone smoked a stogie, you’d probably learn to love that aroma.

    with that said, any time i see someone hold up their iPad and use it as a camera,

    i take my iPhone and use it as a camera to capture the craziness.

    color me crazy.

    do i wish i was in austin right now 

    of course.
    its where i belong.
    its where i should be.

    one thing id be curious about is would i change my mind about the iPad.

    currently i see no use for it in my life. i have a perfectly good phone. and a fine laptop.

    you know what apple needs to make for me. a robot.

    how long have we been waiting for robots?

    not the ones that build cars and fly around football stadiums with cameras.

    i need a robot to cook and clean for me.

    thats all.

    then ill go back to sxsw.
