Dear Steve Jobs,
Hi Steve. Jobs. Steve Jobs. You may remember Bossy from her January 2008 pitch for a free MacBook Air. Well, you’ll be happy to learn, in the intervening months, Bossy purchased her own laptop, a MacBook Pro, using her very own money she earned painting at great peril to her lungs and memory. Also, painting is bad for her memory.
But Steve? Jobs? Steve Jobs? Bossy has been researching the new iPhone 3G S, and here are just a few of the reasons you should consider giving Bossy one of her own.
- This is Bossy’s current cell phone:
Bossy purchased her cell phone in 2002, and yes Bossy realizes this is years before they were actually manufacturing cell phones. The numbers have been rubbed off her keys and she no longer remembers how to retrieve messages and the phone doesn’t take pictures or tell her how to get places — it’s just a metal carcass with a salsa ringtone.
- The new iPhone 3G S is faster! How much faster? According to the advertising, 2x faster! Bossy doesn’t know what this two-ex refers to, or two-ex faster than what, but faster is always better. Except when slower is better.
- The new iPhone 3G S allows you to take videos and photos, and when Bossy says you she means her, Bossy!
- The new iPhone 3G S features a landscape keyboard!
- The new iPhone 3G S allows you to search for stuff! This could really come in handy the next time Bossy leaves the car keys in her dungaree jacket pocket because just who could remember Bossy even wore her dungaree jacket that night, anyway?
- The new iPhone 3G S has a stock-checking feature. And Bossy loves stocks! Especially those prepared with potatoes, beets, fennel, garlic, onions, and parsley.
In closing, and by the way, can Bossy call you Steve? Jobs? Steve Jobs? Bossy thinks providing her with a free iPhone 3G S would be 2Gr8 4U.
Also, you don’t actually have to talk on an iPhone, do you? And, while we’re at it, Steve Jobs? You’re Still Sexy. Get Well Soon.

One of our generation’s most avant garde designers has left this plane of existence. We Will miss him. My sympathy to his family and friends.

Somewhere in that great technological plane Steve is reading Bossy and saying “I should have gotten her that phone so we could talk.”

I think I remember this post.
Goodnight, Mr. Jobs. You will be missed.

Thank you, Bossy for re-posting this post. Perfect tribute. I knew Mr. Jobs was ill, but seeing the report last night was still a kick to the belly.

That is a good post. It’s so weird when someone famous that you admire dies. It’s a strange sort of sadness.

My very first computer experience was an Apple II, of which there were exactly two in my high school. Only certain kids were allowed to tinker on them and I was lucky enough to be in that select group. And THAT was in 1984, I think. Dude changed the whole world. RIP indeed.

Oooo! My mom came home proudly bearing an Apple II in 1983 or 84. I wrote my high school philosophy papers on it, and I thought it was beautiful.

My entire Air Force engineering office did all of our writing on two Mac Pluses when I started there in 1986. It was so much easier than the dang IBM word processor with its command line prompts that I was hooked on Macs forever. When the first mac laptops came out, had to have those. I had a mac plus, then a Mac LCIII (a proud day for me), then a Mac Clone, then an aluminum powerbook, then an iBook. Meanwhile, I had moved onto VAX mainframes at work – command prompts again!
I loves me my ipod touch. I love the design aesthetic of all mac products.
Steve Jobs did change the world.
