Apple Studio Monitor I use with Apple's Memorial to Steve Jobs On Screen

According to the official announcement from Apple, Steve died October 5, 2011, succumbing to cancer. His untimely passing was just over a month since stepping down as CEO. His last breath taken just one day after the iPhone 4 GS was rolled out, the first Apple product ever to be introduced by his predecessor Tim Cook.
I've also admired Steve's accomplishments, creativity, brilliance, tenacity, and talent since I was in my 20s. In fact, Steve and I go way back as I am just a year younger than he was. Though I never met him, I started my career in technology not long after Apple Computer was created and consider myself to be an early adopter that followed the young neophyte company intensely. As a matter of fact, the first computer I ever bought for home use was not an IBM Personal Computer nor even a PC clone; it was an early Apple model. I've passed that brand loyalty onto my own children. Since they were toddlers, my triplets and their big brother (all born within a year), have been raised with the Apple suite of products and services to inspire their young minds.
