I can’t sleep. It’s 3:30am and I’ve been up for two hours. I don’t know why I have this problem, but when I wake up to roll over or get up to go to the bathroom, in a split second everything that I forgot to do or didn’t have time to do rushes into my brain. From doctor appointments to schedule to bills needing payment to recipes on my mind, I lay there in bed… awake. I typically toss and turn for an hour and then head downstairs to my friend, my computer.
My MacPro, to be specific.
I am an Apple-Geek. I love all things Macintosh and I’m quite happy to share it with you, at 3:30 in the morning.
Thanks to the genius and vision of Steve Jobs, I am able to create, design and explore with my amazing computer. I found my calling.
I am not the only one sad that Mr. Jobs passed away yesterday. I remember the first Mac I used in college and it was love at first sight.
In graphic design, most people use Macs. My husband, because of his engineering programs, uses PC. I hate the PC.
The PC is user un-friendly and just wants to be a Mac. Sorry, Mr. Gates, but Windows is not OS X.
When my hubby’s laptop is acting up, he comes to me, his IT babe.
I shake my head and refuse to touch that horrible machine.
I bought my hubby the first iPod when he finished tiling our entire downstairs. It took him 10 months from the first time he pulled the carpet all the way to sealing the tile. Yeah, a big project.
We now own 4 iPods, 1 iPad and 1 iPhone.
I’m not bragging. I’m grateful that we can own these magical toys and the ease and convenience they add to my life.
What makes the mac different and what makes us mac-users labeled “zealots” is hard to explain. You have to be one, to understand, I guess.
So, on behalf of myself and other Mac-lovers, I want to say thank you, Mr. Jobs, for your vision and persistence. You have brought so much imagination and possibilities to our world. I have found enthusiasm in my work life and can see the future at our finger tips.
I just wanted to thank you.
Here’s a Baked Apple for my fellow Mac fanatics.
RIP Steve Jobs.
