Seeking purpose in a stranger’s death

I am finding myself profoundly affected by Steve Jobs’ passing. I never particularly cared for Apple products as they stood for many of the technological principles which I oppose. But as a man who created an image, a following, maybe even a cult; Steve Jobs was a far cry from a failure.

More importantly, when I called the customer service number I was greeted by an automated system.
