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.

We think he would have appreciated that. Jobs' great triumph from 1984 onward was getting people to connect personally with their gadgets as more than tools. So, this thread is yours for reflections about Jobs or his products, a collective memorial.
