Steve Jobs: 1955-2011

Photobucket

Yesterday the world lost one of its most important visionaries – Steve Jobs.  Jobs created the perfect harmony between technology and art.  He made technology cool not only to use, but to look at too.

I can still remember the first time I used a computer.  I was in preschool and I was playing a game where I had to make a worm go through a maze so it could eat an apple when it reached the end.  I’m sure there are many of you reading this that can remember those school days playing Oregon Trail which came on those ungodly large floppy disks that actually were floppy.

As far as cards go, Steve Jobs doesn’t have any.  He wasn’t a huge signer, but I could see a possible cut signature coming in the future.  But for a moment, lets “think different” here.  Lets go beyond a cut signature.  I want to see a Steve Jobs card that contains and actual button from a device he once owned and used.  I bet that would be unique looking and I’m sure the famous iJustine would go nuts over it.    It might be awhile before one of those hit the market though.  Jobs was very strict over who could use his name and the Apple brand.

If you can’t wait for one of those cards, you could always add the 1984 premier issue of Macworld to your collection.  Their only selling for a mere $400.00 each.  An autographed copy containing signatures of both Jobs and Steve Wozniak recently hit eBay and reached $1,426.69, but the reserve price was not met.  Like many companies, they had pins to commemorate product releases and years of service.  Some of these can go for $20.00 each like the one pictured above.

On a side note, I would like to say that Apple Stores are well designed for people with disabilities like myself.  They are wide open with a lot of space, and most of the tables are opened underneath and high enough off the ground so someone in a wheelchair can pull right up to the display.

Steve Jobs will be missed by millions.  Thanks for everything you created.
