So long, Steve Jobs, and thanks for all the fish!

Steve Jobs resigns as Apple CEO. You knew something was going to happen someday, but this still took everyone by surprise.

I was fortunate enough to be in the audience at the last two Apple Worldwide Developer Conferences. I got to see Steve Jobs introduce the iPhone 4 and iCloud. Great performances both times.

Consider that he started Apple, was shown the door, started NeXT, came back to Apple with NeXT, and for the most part the Mac is a NeXT machine. And don’t forget that during all this he also helped Pixar become the powerhouse it is today.

If you had told me 10 years ago that I would be developing mostly for Apple products I would have laughed. I love the products, and I love developing for them. I thank Steve Jobs and the folks at Apple for making this possible.

I wish him well.
