Weird Twist...

In a weird twist of fate, I was just teaching a friend and brand new Mac convert how to use Spotlight to open apps by hitting Cmd + Space and typing Safari. Since it's a new machine, the default homepage,, is what broke the sad news. As a 29 year old that's followed Jobs and Apple since elementary school, I'm deeply saddened by this loss. However, as someone who believes in the afterlife, I'm pleased to know that him and ol' Jef Raskin are finally back together shooting the shit about faulty pancreases and "leap" keys.

With profound respect,
