I’ve been an Apple guy for over 20 years. Like most people, my first computer was a PC. We had a clunky old HP box on the desk in the study from my junior year of HS onward. When I went off to college, I got to experience notation programs, which at the time were only available on Macs.
I know they cost more. I know they have been limited in the past. I know that some of my more populist friends think I’m being elitist. I. Don’t. Care. I like the look, the feel, how they work. I love my iPhone and iPod. I’m writing this on a MacBook Pro laptop.
We’ll miss you, Steve. You showed us that function and design can work together. You changed how we listen to music. You taught us to think different.
