I'm sure everybody know by know, but yesterday, after struggling with cancer for years, at the age of 56(!) Steve Jobs passed away.

He was the person that made the iPods ubiquitous, and with them, the AAC format.


I would surely miss him.

It kinda kicked me in the guts, when I learned about the death of S.J. My dad died of cancer in January this year. He was 54. When seeing the pictures taken shortly before S.J.'s death, it reminded me all over again about the sickness, the pain, and death of my dad. This was one of the reasons why I didn't post an answer up till now. The only Apple product I own, is an iPod nano 2G, that I inherited from my dad. I can strangely relate to his death, since I experienced first hand, what his family experienced. When dying of cancer, you die in pain, and indignity. And to top that off, it's not like you're in agony for just a few hours or days, but years! The first year was horrible, because we didn't know what to expect from the next few years. The second year, my dad's health degraded faster and faster, the last six month of his life were horrible. Artificial anus, urinal catheter, running around with a bag of your own shit at the lower belly, and with a bag of piss on your left leg. He was barely able to stand up for more than a few hours a day. When seeing what happens with S.J. I reckon it was quite similar. Trust me, life is hell for so many reasons when dying of cancer.


I talked about this with my mom last weekend. She told me the first thing that came to her mind when hearing the news, was my dad, his death and how we felt when he was dying. It's weird, when you experienced this kind of thing first hand. What came to my mind, though, is no matter how rich you are, or what kind of celebrity, you can't escape your fate. My dad and S.J. died of the same causes, and at nearly the same age. It's creepy to some extend. Suddenly you notice all those people around you dieing of cancer. It's like it's everywhere around you. Horrible.
