i simply got up and got on with things
i fixed myself a bit of toast, fetched my bike out of the shed and grabbed my i-pod off the dock in the kitchen.
i scrolled through, and stuck on Dizzee Rascal's Boy In Da Corner to listen to whilst i cycled to my Dad's.
when i got there, he stuck on the kettle, and i told my brother about a website he might be interested in.
we fired up my Dad's apple mac and i proceeded to retrieve the link from twitter.
it was only then that i saw the trending news
i was shocked
in a strange way
i knew he had health complications
but Steve Jobs just seemed to be a constant in this world
i don't know if i can truly say that i am deeply saddened by the news, not personally, but in some way, i do know that this existence has just lost someone that changed so much about our modern lives
with no thought about it at all i had already used two of Steve Jobs apple products that very morning, almost by instinct, they are so ingrained in our lifestyle
all those people walking around with their i-phones, all the music i keep on i-tunes, and my plans to pick up an i-pad in the not too distant future
all these measurable technological stepping stones that have transcended the realm of 'gadget' to become thoroughly mainstream and unquestionably accepted
and we have lost the man that made this happen
and if that weren't a startling enough thought, here is another
without Steve Jobs, we would never have had Toy Story.
