christycorr: Barney Stinson (How I Met Your Mother) (Woe.)
The internet's all over this—every tech site worth its salt has a huge obituary for Steve Jobs, and a shitload of people are mourning, be it for his work at Apple, or Pixar, or his status as an innovator, or just as a human being a lot of people admired.

I haven't got much to say on the subject, but I made the switch to Apple at a point in my life where everything about me changed—my outlook on life, my attitude towards school, my friends, my apartment, my reading habits, my sexual orientation, my religion, everything. Sure, Apple's marketing is just that good and basically every Macmaniac loves to gush about how it's more than a brand, and I don't know about the others, but—to me, it really, really is.

Apple is a symbol of a lot I grew to love, and of how far I've come as a person since I was a young didn't-know-better PC user. Apple is my first lasting friendships; the first time I fell in love; my first roommates. Apple is Harry Potter, and alcohol, and cigarettes, and cardplaying all-nighters. Apple is growing up, and learning, and loving.

So...thank you, Steve. Rest in peace ♥
