Dave Pell, writing just after the death of Steve Jobs, on his almost lifelong dedication to the Mac as a creative machine.

When my then girlfriend agreed to be my wife, I told her it was time to have the discussion about her converting. She said, Don’t worry, I’ve already talked to the Rabbi and started the process of becoming Jewish. I know our kids will be growing up in a house without a Christmas Tree and I’m okay with that.

But that wasn’t the conversion I was talking about. I explained to her that our kids would be growing up in a house without Windows-based PCs. And then I gave her my old Mac Plus and said, Lady, this is your life now.”

As we cross the tenth anniversary of the death of Steve Jobs, I’ve been appreciating the tributes to the man.
