Steve Jobs, NC State, and the “new” iPad

When the iPad was introduced way back in 2010, we purchased a number of “tablets” for my staff at NC State University.  As a test, we worked with the library and turned a number of them over to our students and asked them to blog about the experience.

We sensed immediately that the new tablet was revolutionary and would change the way we think about personal computing . . .  forever.

Something Steve’s company has been doing since the beginning.

The ability to combine art and technology truly rocked the world and he seemed to embody disruptive innovation at every turn.

I never knew Steve Jobs, but I know Steve Jobs through the company and products he created.  That friendship will continue well into the future.  So long good buddy and thank you for everything you’ve done for me and those I love.
