I was sad to hear about the death of Steve Jobs last week.
As a life long Mac user, Steve has done a massive amount to shape my life and career. From the moment I got a Mac at university in Trondheim, I fell in love with computers that were easy to use, elegant and friendly.
Over the yearâ€™s Iâ€™ve had six lap tops, three desktops, a couple of ipods, iphones and now an ipad. Apple also drive my intenet network around the office.
The thing I admire most about Steve was his ability to stick to his guns. He launched coloured, flavoured computers in the 90s when everyone else was making sleek black slabs. He took on the music industry and changed the way we buy music, and then gave the phone a real kick up the backside withe launch of the iPhone. As I ride the metro here in Stockholm Iâ€™m amazed at the amount of iPhones I see. Just last week I sat opposite a teen, probably 13 or so, fiddling with his iPhone 4. The thirteen year old I once was could not have imagined the access to the world this lad had from the device in his pocket. Truly amazing.
As a business owner and someone that works with online marketing and content creation, Iâ€™m a firm believer in trying to find my own unique voice.
