    30 years ago, I saw this ad on the side of the building near my studio.
    Hours later I was test driving a Mac.
    Days Later I owned one.
    The Mac I use today is my 32nd model.
    Thanks Steve.

    Can't believe how we were able to "live" in that little screen. But it was awesome.

    @Owen Jones -well my son @Riley Cran destroyed a few of those.
    @Bob Case Tiny screen, and when the first laser printer came along you could send a file and go for lunch, be back before the print emerged from the printer.

    @David Cran is father of @Riley Cran ....mind is blown.

    On a side note, I miss knowing that Steve is in the background making sure that every detail is set to perfection. I don't think he was a saint by any means, but I do think he had a stunning understanding of the importance of design.
