Steve Jobs 1955-2011

It was a shock to hear of Steve Jobs’ death in my iPad after traveling on the Yangtze River and I read about it a day later, since you don’t have the possibility to use the 3G option to get on the internet here in China.

But what can I say that was not said all over the news?

The only thing I can tell you is that his ideas change the way I worked… it was a revolution for me designing my first page using a Macintosh Classic in 1988 with the programs Aldus PageMaker and Illustrator88… even without the hard drive we have now (to use it you had to put the old diskette) I could see it would change the Press industry. It was a huge step from the manual paste-up and primitive typesetting.

But Steve Jobs went a lot further, changing several other industries, changing the way you listen and buy music, how to create animated movies (Pixar), showed us what a Smartphone should always be, an the last of his creation: the iPad.

Traveling with the iPad was a great experience (even more if you get 3G connection in the country you are visiting), you can consult maps, find tourist information, etc…

And he manage to change the Press industry again, not only selling magazines, newspapers and books to read in any of the iOS devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad) in the iBooks application, but also through other applications created for those devices.

My kids love to read any story in the iPad, because of its interactivity. It’s fun and easy…

It is very sad knowing that we lost Steve Jobs, there aren’t many like him in history.

I don’t know if Apple will remain creating those amazing products, the only thing I know is what will be my next computer: a MacBook Pro.

Thanks Steve for changing our lives…

P.S.: If you would like to share your thoughts with Apple, memories and condolences, please email rememberingsteve@apple.com
