Young Steve Jobs holding an apple. "Think Different"

Steve,

Just want to thank you for all of the innovations you pioneered in the computer industry and beyond. My very first computer was an Apple IIe. I remember the excitement of opening the boxes, connecting the 80 column video card to the Apple monochrome display, connecting the dual 5.25 inch external floppy disk drives, keyboard, and mouse. The Apple IIe was absolute magic. It completely captured my imagination as a kid, as has nearly every device Apple has produced since. Thank you for choosing to think different, making computers cool.

You’ll be missed.

Brian
