Firstly, let me apologise for leaving you hanging.  I wish I could tell you I was off doing something exciting and noble in Africa, but the truth of the matter is I simply forgot how to log-in to this WordPress account.

Pretty lame?  Yes, I agree.

I’m also trying to think of something exciting to tell you – after all, it’s been a long time since we spoke.  In all honesty, there’s not much going on.  Except the security guard across the room is kinda hot and he keeps smiling at me.  It’s rather distracting.

One bit of news is that my Cubby has decided to go and get himself a tertiary education.  I’m very happy about this, because he hates his job so much at the moment it puts a strain on our relationship.  He doesn’t realise that he brings his moods home with him and I have to play dodgeball with them.  Of course he has reservations about us becoming a single-income family (so do I, actually), but there are more important things to me than getting ahead quickly.  Like his happiness, and his fulfillment as a person, which I think is something he’s going to discover at university.

Though, it is going to make it hard next year for us to buy the 27-inch iMac, 15-inch MacBook Pro and the iPad that are on our wish lists.  Hm…

Stay happy, stay in touch.  I love you all.

Apple of Our Eyes

A lot of great people have passed away during my life, and there are some that I will always remember.  When Princess Diana died in a Paris car crash, I was only a child, but I can remember where I was when I first heard of her passing.  As a kid, you seem to think that people of such noteriety will live forever. 

October 5, 2011 – Steve Jobs passes after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.  But what I will remember him for is not his illness, but how he literally revolutionised human interaction.

I feel as though I can’t overstate what Steve did for the world in bringing technology to the fingertips of millions of people – young, old, whatever background.  With the invention of the iPod, there was no longer a need to be tech savvy to enjoy something that was clearly a leap forward.

The iPod, the iPhone, the iPad, the Mac.  These products might not be the very best in the industry for performance, but they are incredible to use, and nothing else inspires people the way an Apple product can. 

Thank you, Steve Jobs.  Thank you for your passion and dedication to creating what amounts to more than a line-up of beautiful products.
