There are a lot of tributes being posted all around the web to the late, great Steve Jobs.
And this is another one.
When I was a kid, my brother and I used to watch the cartoon “The Jetsons”. I loved watching it because it helped me imagine what it would be like to have a robot that cleaned up my mess or a conveyor belt that showered and dressed me in my PJs. No one ever invented those things (boo), but the stuff that Steve Jobs created? Well, that stuff was just as good.
Now, maybe my MacBook can’t clean up after me. Maybe my iPod can’t make a burger and fries appear before me at the push of a button. And maybe the iPhone 4S can’t teleport me to Hawaii. But these little gadgets make things in my life a little easier, a little brighter, a little more “Jetsons”.
Thank you, Mr. Jobs, for bringing some of the fun of my childhood into my adult life.
