We break format in this special episode of the podcast to reflect on the passing of Steve Jobs and the influence that he had on technology and, specifically, the three of us. RIP Steve.
Our first Apple tech:
- John: worked on Apple ][e and Korg synthesizers in college computer and music classes
- Tom: first introduced to Apple IIe in grade school 7th and 8th grade. remember writing BASIC programs that would use each of the 15 colors and display text on the screen.
- Mike: iPod Mini in 2005, then the iMac Core Duo; the first Mac to use Intel processors. Also an early adopter (opening weekend) of the 1st iPhone.
