Random Thoughts: It was All About Jobs

in Random Thoughts

A technology icon passes, and the world takes notice. Steve Jobs passing is sad, given how young he was, and what other technology changes he might have brought to transpire, but for now, we can simply enjoy how Apple changed the playing field in so many areas. As a technologist Jobs wasn’t the best, but he was able to create interest (read hype) about things and with that changed how the world viewed technologies, and for that I think the world owes him a tip of the hat. His death creates a hole for another fair haired person to step in and be the next media technology darling (no Larry Ellison, I don’t mean you). Who will that be?

The Ontario election is over too yawn and I’ll talk more about that next week, but I think I am thankful that it is all over for now, of course if it is a minority situation then we might be doing this again soon.

The autumn leaves are falling and it is a long weekend ahead here in Canada, so enjoy your long weekend, don’t eat too much turkey, and start getting ready for Halloween (or is that Christmas).
While I sit here with my iPhone and my iPod, neither of which had ground breaking technology, but still are the defacto standards for their technology niche, I wonder what might have been without Steve Jobs, and wonder what I was writing about this week too:

And thanks to those who added me on Twitter I am now over 900 folks who follow me, wow!

Will technology without it’s messianic self-described leader? Don’t think these bloggers would write too much about that:

Want an Apple?

Remember my RSS feed is available too, for those who enjoy reading without looking at my crappy page lay out, and I have added an RSS Comment Feed as well.

Have alook at my micro-blog on Twitter, where you can see a whole plethora of good articles and pithy comments by me as well. Twitter feed where I re-tweet many great articles by some of my featured writers (and make the occasional odd or off colour commentary on life (in 140 characters or less)). I am also on Digg as Big Cajun Man, on reddit, Tumblr and other Social Media sites (look for the BigCajunMan userid) as well.

If you have social media accounts, don’t forget to vote for my posts (see the nifty dashboard on the bottom of each article, where you can cast your votes). As they say in Quebec, vote early and vote often!

This site is iPhone Friendly (and Android , iPod Touch and iPad Friendly), enjoy it on the go, in a readable format for the device. If you are reading with an iPhone or Android device, drop me a comment and tell me if this needs any improvements. This site is also in the Kindle US Blog list, if you are interested, not available in Canada yet (because no Blogs are available in Canada on a Kindle?!?).

Remember

“It’s more fun to be a pirate than to join the navy.”
