The Macintosh was the first computer to really hook me; the first computer that didn't seem strictly utilitarian to me.
My very first programming experience was using Borland's Turbo Pascal for Mac. It was at a Macintosh that I discovered my love of programming.
I was once the lone CAD operator running AutoCAD on a color Macintosh II while others used PCs from manufacturers that have long since vanished from the earth.
I start every morning with a cup of coffee and my iPad to catch up on email, news and RSS feeds.
In the evening, I often wind down watching movies on my Apple TV or reading books on my iPad.
Every day, I use my iPhone to do things that were unimaginable just a few years ago.
I'll deliver my Autodesk University class using a Macbook Pro. I'll create all the materials on my Mac Pro.
Steve Jobs was the reason I embraced computers in the first place. It was his innovations that led me down the path to my career and his technology that makes my every day a little simpler.
He will be sorely missed.
