It’s no secret that I’m an Apple fan girl. It’s true when they say, “Once You Go Mac, You Can Never Go Back”. My first Apple gadget was a blue iPod Mini which I asked my cousin to buy in Singapore. I fell in love with the blue iPod. I got another green iPod Nano, an iPod Shuffle, and then the white 13-inch MacBook which opened my eyes to the wonders of OS X.Then came the iPhone 3G, the iPad, this 11-inch MacBook Air, and the iPad 2.
I want my next Apple purchase to be an iMac but there really is no need for me to have a kick-ass multimedia computer. It’s either a MacBook Pro which I by the time I need to buy a new one will be cheaper or a Mac Mini. My MacBook Air still has two years under the Apple Care plan so there is no rush. Unless…unless….something happens that I need a more powerful machine. Hmmm…
I dream of attending MacWorld, WWDC, or an Apple event. I hope to cover just one Apple event for work in my lifetime.
Anything Apple, I love. Don’t ask me why. Most Apple fans would just agree and understand. (Bakit nga ba?!)
It’s only natural that I admire Steve Jobs for all that he had contributed to Apple. I just admire him for being a genius. He may not be the perfect boss but HE IS STEVE JOBS. Yun na.
So imagine my shock when I heard of this death last year. It was especially painful because my dad died a few days before Steve. I was still mourning about my father’s passing and then, Apple’s founder was also gone. I did not cry. I only felt there was a connection. What a coincidence that the two guys I respected and admired the most died only days apart.
I didn’t mourn over Steve Jobs’ death. Just shocked. I felt sadness for about a moment and thought “sayang“. I don’t personally know him so there’s no point in crying. Why would I?
But then all these Apple geeks were paying tribute to him. I did make one too as part of my work. I made a short photo slideshow of his photos taken by my boss at MacWorld event. This was work but was special to me because I chose to use my husband’s original composition.

Joshua composed this song for a churchmate’s short film for school five years ago. I was more than happy to use his music for a Steve Jobs tribute.
It’s been a year. I completely forgot about his death anniversary but I had to write about it for work. I love what Apple did– a video tribute featuring Steve Jobs’ iconic images and famous quotes.
Nakakaiyak. And with all the booboos of Apple lately, I feel for Steve. He must be turning in his grave right now. :p
