Thank You, Steve.

On a normal day, my routine goes something like this:

Wake up. Check the son. Check Twitter. Breakfast. Check Twitter. Shower. Check Twitter. Play with the son. Check Twitter... Well, you get the picture.

But on the 5th of October 2011, I got up, and to my horror, our internet connection was busted. To add to my not so pleasant morning, I had a deadline to fulfill. Having the Client texting me every 30 minutes certainly did not help me to keep my cool. So I was running around like a headless chicken trying to feed and bath a 2 year old toddler, feed and bath myself, get my work done, get out of the house and deliver it to my Client by hand. My point is, I did not have time to check my Twitter timeline.

By the time I checked, I was having lunch with the Client and it was about 2pm. And there it was. A timeline flooded with the news of Steve Jobs's passing. I thought it was a hoax.

Client: "Yeah, you didn't know? It's all over Facebook"

Shocked. Speechless.

Some people think they are so funny, when actually they're just distasteful.
Thank you for everything, Steve. You have done wonders to the technology world. I honestly cannot imagine how Apple is going to be without you around. RIP.
