Thank You Steve Jobs

5 Oct

Apple co-founder and long-time CEO, Steve Jobs passed away today. 

I’ve heard that he was incredibly tough as a leader, even mean at times.  Perhaps he could have been nicer; however, his demand for excellence is precisely why I have never had a major issue with either one of my 4 Mac computers nor my software since 2000.  It’s because of his demand for excellence that I was able to smoothly edit every single one of my films, beginning with iMovie on an iBook.

I didn’t know him personally, so I can’t speak to his character, but I did know him professionally through the many years I used an Apple computer and Apple software.  His demand for excellence is nothing less than inspiring.

May God bless his soul, his wife and his four children…
