Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs died today.  Few people in the last quarter century left such a mark.  Like Apple or not, the product that came from that company changed the world.  ITunes changed the way music is sold.  The Iphone changed the way we use our phones.  And who knows what the IPad will change.

I don't have an IPhone.  If Sprint had been an original carrier of the phone I probably would have made the plunge, but I've always liked Sprint and the people I knew that had AT&T weren't too happy with their services so I stayed where I was.  A brief side trip to the Pre WedOS, but it's been Android and Google as the phones for me.  Even now with the IPhone coming to Sprint I don't think I'll change.  I have a Nexus S and if anything I'll probably update to the Nexus Prime.  

But I do have an Ipod and an Ipad.  Both are devices that I love.  The Ipod for my money is one of the greatest inventions ever, I have over 40,000 songs downloaded on it and I can carry my music anywhere I go.  The Ipad is something I'm learning to use more and more.  I'll go a few months and use it almost everyday and than put it down and not pick it up for another few months.  

Still whatever you think of Apple you have to admit that Steve Jobs left an impression.
