I never owned an iPad. Not an iMac, iPhone or even iPod (I know I know, I'm sort of stone age) Even though I never owned any of this technology, I still recognize that it changed the world. Everybody has a smart phone now. And even though they may not all be iphones, they are pretty much based on the technology that Apple pioneered. The same goes for iPods and any other mp3 player. Even Forest Gump was smart enough to keep his money invested in Apple. Even if he did think it was just "Some sort of Fruit Company".
Now Steve Jobs is dead. And even though I never bought any of his stuff, I still realize that this sucks. And not just because another human being is gone before his time (he was 56). But because he was a human being that could have pushed us forward as a civilization had he lived a full natural life. It pains me to imagine the number of things he could have invented over the next 20 years.
I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THIS IS. BUT I BET STEVE JOBS COULD HAVE INVENTED IT.
Make no mistake, even if you are like me and don't own a single microchip of Apple stuff. Your future will be a little less interesting without this guy around.
