I know a company is bigger the one person, but I do believe Steve Jobs did an amazing thing at Apple.
Possibly without him we wouldn't have the iPhone or the iPad, and without those two devices I wouldn't have
the career/company that I have today.
So on that personal note, I have a lot to thank him and Apple for.
I learned about Steve's passing away late last night.
In 1984 I saw first Mac at one of the Frankfurt stores. I spent there 3 hours, playing with it. Before leaving, I bought one 3.5 inch empty diskette for my last DM15. It did not fit to any other computer at the time, but I wanted to own at least a tiny bit of the magic...
Steve and his Apple became a big part of my professional and everyday life since then.
Today, I can can only light for him some virtual candles, as we usually do on Polish blogs for people we cared about.
