When I was the director of a youth center, filled with street kids who had very little to occupy their time constructively, the Apple Company and Steve Jobs gave us computers and printers. These were the first little MAC machines the company invented. I will never forget the excitement of opening those boxes, setting up those computers, turning them on and being confronted with a little happy face staring back at me from inside that monitor.
We immediately set up computer classes for the kids and began offering tutoring sessions using our new MACs.
Now, over thirty years later, I own an iPhone. When I purchased it for my 50th birthday last December, I still felt just as I did when we received those MACs; the wonder, the awe, the childlike excitement were all still there, intact. Even now, I marvel at this little phone every time I use it. I'm still discovering new things about it. I'm still a child with a toy.
Thank you Steve.
