Just finished the Steve Jobs book

I just finished the Steve Jobs book on the way home from work tonight.  Wow, what a journey.  [Spoiler Alert!!] Want to know why there’s no power switch on the iPod, iPad or iPhone?  Steve’s last thoughts in the book reflected on death.  Steve was about 50/50 on believing in God.  He thought maybe he just had a desire to believe in an afterlife, to believe that all this knowledge that you accumulate and experience you aquire isn’t wasted, but that your consciousness somehow lives on.  He thought about it for a long time,  then he said “On the other hand, perhaps it’s like and on/off switch–“click” and you’re gone.”  Then he smiled a little and said “Maybe that’s why I never liked to put on/off switches on Apple devices.”

Now there’s something to think about…every time your Apple device freezes up and you’re trying to figure out how to restart it…
