Team,

I wanted to write a short note on the passing of Steve Jobs.  For some reason, I am deeply affected by his death.  I feel that I got to know him on a personal level through his world changing products.  When I talk about Apple design, I say things like “look at how he made that magnetic power adapter so you don’t get injured when you trip over it” or “it makes total sense that he would put that button there”.  Steve Jobs thought about user experience and product innovation so deeply that it made me feel that he was always there as I used an Apple product.

I have never really felt this type of connection to someone I never met, but I do.  I think it’s because deep inside our hearts and minds, we all want to make things that people love.
