A New Hope

First of all… Happy New Year!

I haven’t blogged in a while, so deepest apologies… well not too deep otherwise that’d be gross. But things have been a little rocky, well actually things have been so rocky, they’ve been Rocky V. We all have times when we just have too much unloaded on to us, for us to do the things we wish to. Sometimes they are things that are just inevitable and other times they are just down right bad. It makes me wonder if it’s life throwing to many things my way, or me not managing myself good enough. For me i thinks it’s more of a mix of the two with a little added extra of the former. But when it all comes down to it, we have this one day in every year that makes us think, “You know what? i don’t have to do or think like that anymore, because now it’s time for changes.” Some us actually do it and some of us just can’t. I am of course talking about the New Year. For many in other cultures, the day is different and for a large section of the world, it was last week, but the concept is the same.

Like many i too have used this time to create resolutions. Like for instance, one of mines is 1080p. Both the long term and instant resolutions are something we should feel loyal too, as for me, it is this that will make my life move forward. Thus a new year equals a new hope. A hope that’ll keep us going until the next year to come. And talking of new years to come, isn’t this an exciting year? By that i mean, this year we have that Mayan Prediction of the END OF THE WORLD. Do i believe it will happen… Nope, or at least i will go about my daily life like there isn’t. Do YOU believe it will happen? Post comments if you wish. I have done a fair deal of research on it and it is rather interesting. Although most “professionals” believe the Mayan side of it to be a mis-representation. The part that i would like to believe which excludes the supposed Mayan theory, is that this may be a time of new change. 2012 may indeed mark the beginning of a new era. Now that sounds better. Maybe the digital revolution will take over and the world will upgrade… hmm upgrades. Or SOME scientist in SOME remote location will have access to SOME super tech and will create a machine that will become artificially intelligent and then despise the idea that something as primitive as human beings have created it, and then it will build more of its own, and then create an army and unleash a war of mass proportions, while humanity is fending for their lives… ok i stop. Thanks for reading and stay tuned, or IPed. Haha that sounds funny.

Steve Jobs: Time Takes Even Legends

Well it’s been a few days since the passing away of the awesome “Apple Visionary” Steve Jobs and things just don’t feel right. Someone who began -along side another two- one company with a simple name “Apple”. A is for Apple. It’s the first thing that appears in the alphabet in most cases and just like it is a very common first word in the alphabet, it is also currently the most valuable brand in the World. Talk about the Big Apple. I find it inspiring how Sir. Jobs (not really a Sir but it’s for respect) came about being the head man of Apple. From a youthful hippie that even dropped out of college to The Apple Man. All he had was an aspiration. To invent for the world. His dreams erupted into the world like a Yo-Yo craze. But this Yo-Yo just kept on spinning.

I think it proves to us that no matter what obstacles lie in our path, we can overcome them. We may not pass our GCSEs, or maybe fail a few A-Levels or like Sir. Jobs maybe even dropout entirely (not that i’m indicating you should), but as long as we have a passion growing inside us like a wildfire; if we grasp it, we can do wonders. Not all our dreams are for the world. Some people want to accomplish something just for themselves or the people they love and keep close. Others want to change the world for the better. I for one wish to make even the slightest difference in the world, or maybe just to a handful of people; but a difference nevertheless.

Apple Computers: Before & After

From the "Apple I" in 1976; to the first "Macintosh 128K" in 1984; and to the current "iMac" in 2011

Talk about change, and hasn’t the world changed. It’s funny how Apple was officially established in 1976 on April 1st. I do think those of you more into the artistic side of life may find this interesting.

Apple Logo Evolution

The Evolution of the Apple Logo

That first logo even has Isaac Newton sitting under a tree, unaware that an “Apple” will fall on his head. Steve Jobs along with Apple have come a long way and for me, throughout my whole life (so far). I do wonder how Apple will develop from this point forward, knowing that Steve Jobs has left years worth of products in line for us. But then what? Find out in the next episode of … ok i stop. I’m pretty sure there’s a movie ready to be made called “Steve Jobs” … yes i’m looking at you Sony Pictures, who have already secured the rights to the movie based on the soon to be released Steve Job’s Biography… i wonder. I hate it when companies do that. I find it unusual how whenever someone in the world does something great, something happens to make them fall -not in the sense of fail- but just fall. Maybe i’ll delve deeper into this in another post. I guess all that is left to say is thanks for all your hard work Steve Jobs and for the inspiration to many. While the world lies Jobs-less, the legacy continues.

P.S. And remember folks…an Apple a day!
