Steve Jobs Open Thread

The death of Steve Jobs has provoked a wide array of reactions. Here at The Atlantic, we've been reflecting on how and why we're mourning the passing of a visionary. But one interesting trend we've noticed is that many people are talking about how they first met Apple products, as if those experiences were brushes with Jobs himself.
