No mourning at Apple store for loss of Steve Jobs

The World grieves a Visionary and Technological Icon.  I like thousands made my pilgrimage to the Apple store at the Eaton’s Centre Toronto Canada on Thursday to pay my respects and to catch a glimpse of how others were reacting to the news of Steve Jobs death.  Personally, I have nothing but praise for Steve Jobs he actually made it cool to be a “computer geek”.  I was shocked on Thursday when the only sign of Steve Jobs death was the dimmed Iconic Apple sign out front the store and a few apples and a bunch of white roses from H.O.  Inside the store it was business as usual with not even his picture on display in the back of the store.  Staff stated they had not been given any instructions other then the sign and they were waiting to hear whether or not to display a picture or memorial.  A continuous stream of Apple mourners stopped in front of the store taking pictures.  After what seemed like an eternity staff finally placed post it notes, pens and markers for notes of condolences and messages to be left on the window of the store.   Although they did observe a moment of silence at 2pm I couldn’t help but think how disgusted I was with Apple for not having done more.  Here is the man who Co-founded Apple and he was barely being acknowledged by his own company.  My disgust continued when I saw that on Friday the Iconic Apple in front of the store was lit and a small picture was placed on the glass in front of the store.  Really only one day of bare mourning for one of the biggest innovators of our time.  Are you kidding me?  Thanks God for the sea of Apple mourners who placed thousands of post it notes on the store front and organized makeshift memorials around the World.  The picture below is from Business section of the Toronto Star.  It shows the true power of Steve Jobs.  I know I owe so much to Steve Jobs.  I never would have started my blog if it hadn’t been for him.  He made technology interesting and accessible to everyone.  We miss him and will never forget him.  The buzz on social networks is that Apple fans are marking October 14, 2011 as Steve Jobs day.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
