5 October 2011

It was a sad day for me and for everyone who has a feeling towards Apple and the person who represent Apple to the core, Steve Jobs.

Where was I when I heard the news? Where were you? I was in bed, sleeping. And then I woke up due to a certain buzzing sound. Yes I hate mosquito’s. At 2AM or something in the morning. Certainly not pleasant. So turned on the light to do some hunting, but couldn’t find it. So after sometimes I just sat there on my bed. I was tired, but couldn’t sleep. Or somehow, something bothered me. It was like a small voice in the back of my mind telling me that something has happened.

What I did then was sigh deeply. I thought okay I’ll reed something before I try to go to sleep again. Opened the Reeder App on my iPad for some RSS feeds and there was something about Steve Jobs. A link to an old video about him. Then another feed with some other video’s of him. Then another one… hmm… this… ┬ádon’t know how to put my finger on it. Then the dreaded feed with the announcement. NO…… I couldn’t believe it. I can’t be true. It has to be some media buzz thing. But unfortunately… I was wrong. Apple putting an statement on there site. Tim Cook’s email statement. President Obama’s statement. And a lot more evidence pointing to the same conclusion. The coin dropped in my head. I was wide awake. I can’t sleep now. It was around 3 or 4 AM in the morning 6 October. Time difference between Europe on the States. So it really just happened. I’ll remember this as 6 October in the morning. A sad day…
