To Steven Paul Jobs
I don't know how you are doing by my love and thoughts are with you.
I am listening to some appropriately formidable instrumental music as background to my mind racing through your professional life circa 1975...Mozart's Mass in C Minor K.427...backdrop for the invention of the personal computer...
Jobs v. Gates...
Steven, l'chaim my friend. The World/History cannot thank you and your mind enough. Millions are feeling the pain you are currently experiencing and many of us would trade places with you...
...Homebrew Computer Club, Atari, HP, Reed, Wozniak, Markkula, Apple ][, NeXT, Windows v Macinstosh UI, Lisa, Pixar, Sculley, Apple stock at $2/share, selling all shares AAPL exept one to receive the Annual Report, Disney, Microsoft $300M investment, iPod, iTunes, iPhone...1997 Michael Dell says he would shut Apple down were he helming that company...AAPL trades at $201.31... AAPL v DELL v MSFT v S&P 500 ...qed.
Battle of the Heroes Star Wars Episode III Revenge of the Sith by John WIlliams (iPhone 3.0) is taking me through the present...it is pouring down rain as I write this (iPhone 3.0)...G-D is crying with the rest of us...
I must now lay down this formidable Pen (iPhone 3.0) as my eyes are too blurred to see to write from my tears.
On behalf of the World and History, of which, you have changed forever, we Love you and care about you.
