Technology Inspiration

 In Standard, Tag Management, Uncategorized

I’m interrupting the current blog schedule to reflect on the news coming out of the technology sector. I’m talking about the passing of Steve Jobs.

I never actually met Steve, and I never had the pleasure to work for him. I’m purely a technology geek that has had my life changed by the myriad of wonderful products championed by Steve.

I was late to Apple, my first Apple product was the original iPhone. I loved it, and it’s still a viable gadget today. That purchase lead me to my second, a MacBook Pro. Since then Apple keyboards, Magic Mice, Trackpads, Airport Extremes, Apple TV’s (2), Mac Mini’s (4 – two for me and one for each of my parents), another Macbook Pro, a Macbook (for my sister), an iMac, a 30″ Cinema display, 3 shuffles, an iTouch, an iPhone 3 and two iPhone 4’s. I even purchased a Lenovo Netbook because someone figured out how to install OSX on it. I haven’t let go of a single device, and I don’t know that I will…They all seem so viable, and for whatever reason, I’ve connected with all of them at some point in time.

The Apple platform has morphed the way I do my day to day operations, and as a result standard Tealium issue to new employees is a MacBook Pro. The Apple design philosophy has also been ingrained in the way we design products here at Tealium.

It’s hard to miss someone you’ve never met, but I am sad knowing he’s no longer out there building things that inspire me. My sincerest condolences go out to his family and friends as I know his departure leaves a tremendous void.  I look forward to meeting him in the afterlife – mainly to get my hands on whatever he’s been working on.
