I seriously had a breathe of air taken out of me when I saw this...

Over the past 13 years, I kind of saw the slow and horrific degradation of a great man.

R.I.P Mr. Jobs! I have been buying your products for over 15 years now.

A montage of his degrading health over the past few years:


To this final horrific photo:


QUOTE
(CNN) -- Steve Jobs, the visionary in the black turtleneck who co-founded Apple in a Silicon Valley garage, built it into the world's leading tech company and led a mobile-computing revolution with wildly popular devices such as the iPhone, died Wednesday. He was 56.

Apple was certainly instrumental in AccuWeather's history:

Above are photos showing Macintosh computers in use at our old building in the 1990s, and here is a quote from Brett Anderson's blog today:

QUOTE
When I came to Accuweather fresh out of college back in 1989 I was introduced to the Macintosh computer. I had an old PC dinosaur in my college days with the classic monochrome display. The Mac was small and kind of ugly.

The Accuweather forecasting department has always used Apple computers through the years in order to write up forecasts for all of our radio and television clients using Filemaker Pro.

I was not a big fan of the Apple Macs for many years and stuck to PC's at home.

As I got older the Apple products got better, more reliable and more user friendly than the typical PC and I ended up buying an Imac a few years ago. I will never go back to a regular PC. I was sold!

The ease and convenience of the Imac was awesome and it looked great on my desk. One wire, no bulky unit and a great display. The extra investment was well worth it. My wife now feels the same way as it took her a little longer to accept this different type of operating system. The Iphoto application is the best in the business in terms of being user friendly. We love it!

Thanks Steve, you developed great, reliable products that have certainly enriched our family. You will be missed.
