A first taste of internet....

Although Internet started in the 1950's and 60's, the first time it landed in the Philippines was in early of 1995 and two schools were the first recipients of  internet. These were the University of San Carlos - Technological Center in Cebu City and University of the Philippines, in Diliman, Quezon City.  The rest followed after that.  

I was one of the more fortune ones to ever first try it out since I was a working scholar of the University of San Carlos assigned to the Computer Lab. It was not until when two years after I graduated when I had the taste of the first popular internet broswer which has a symbol above. Can anyone still remember this logo? :-)

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma -- which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They should somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." - Steve Jobs

Remembering the past... The Apple II

I guess some of you still remembers this. ;-) Well I have used this sometime in my lifetime and believe me, I have written thousands of lines of codes for this machine using Apple Basic which was preloaded into the system. I use to write programs for this machine during my High School days. ;-)

Farewell Steve Jobs...

Today the world mourns the passing of one of the greatest minds in the world. The person who inspired me during my younger years to become who I am. A symbol of innovation, perseverance and intellect. The man behind the company symbol, "the apple with a bite". My idol... Steve Jobs.

Since I was twelve, I already had an experience with the inventions he created, the Apple II computer. Working side by side with my personal TRS-80 computer and Texas Instrument TI/99A, I was able to compare these three and that time, the Apple Computer was already years ahead of the rest. And as I type this blog on the i-Pad 2 loaded with the Blogger+ software, I can't help but think how these things have touched my life and the life of others. We will miss you Steve and we will always remember you...

I dedicate this blog to you... Steve Jobs (1955 - 2011)
