I decided to write this after seeing a bunch of mediocre to terrible tributes among a scant few good ones. But since my inspiration was solely reactionary, it was created too late for timeliness. Thankfully, Apple has newsworthy tech releases so often that we only had to wait a week before it was appropriate again.
Mind you, I’m not an Apple fan-boy in any sense; I’ve never owned an Apple product. Nonetheless, I can ride the coattails of a zeitgeist with the best of ‘em. I’ll leave it to Will to write about his apple-love, if he decides to pop his head up long enough to post here.
