The passing of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has been a somber occasion for the legion of fans and users of i-branded products.  No where is the grief felt more sharply than at Apple itself.  We share a special remembrance from Rich Lawrence, the former host of Lite 98.7′s Flashback Saturday Night who currently works at the Apple Store in Albany.

I have been working for Apple for 4 years now. I applied for a job at Apple on a friend’s suggestion. If you told me 5 years ago I would be working for one of the biggest technology companies in the world, I would have rolled my eyes at you and said something like “Yeah, that would be cool, but it won’t happen.”  But here I am 4 years later, it’s one of the biggest turning points in my life.

Again, it can sound corny, but the concepts and the philosophy that Steve Jobs gave me to work by, I have taken and used at home and in my life and it’s changed how I do things as well as how I see life. It’s not about the technology, it’s people that use that technology. That is Steve’s real legacy. I consider myself lucky to work for a company that values people like it does. That is how Steve thought, what he believed and what he taught me and others. And while it’s true I never met him in person, I still considered him someone that I could be a good friend with.
