I remember when I was kid while sitting in a car outside a laundry-mat having a radio station interrupt some music to announce Elvis was dead. As a kid I was a huge fan of Elvis. I was stunned. All I could think to do was cry.
I was standing outside of Fry’s in Palo Alto waiting for a co-worker to pick me up when I read the tweet. Steve Jobs had just passed away. We all knew this day would come but none of us were ready for it. I was stunned. Sad. Suddenly lonely.
When my friend picked me up I told him and said let’s go to the Apple Store in Palo Alto. I have been needing a new laptop for personal use and figured what better time to buy. So I grabbed a MacBook Air.
For me I will always remember where I was when I heard about SJ and I will always think about him when I use my Air.
