Remember when getting 100,000 miles on your car was considered a miracle of sorts? Those invited to bear witness performed the ritual of peering into the driver side window to confirm all those zeros ...

A new video has popped online that provides a glimpse of what Vancouver was like nearly 40 years ago.

Like most Apple fans, the news of Steve Jobs passing while expected was a shock. This is because we loved the products he brought us and respected him as the greatest business leader today. However, for me there was very much a personal benefit to his genius in making great devices that were so simple to use.

I bought my first Mac (Powerbook 5300cs) when I moved to Japan because English based Windows machines at the time could not use Japanese. I was grateful for this flexibility, but really learned of the Mac’s power when my mother decided she wanted to start using the Internet. She was over 70 and had never really used a computer before. I knew that with a constantly crashing PC she would give up on computers within a year, so I made sure she bought an iMac and told her to take a one-day Mac course. She has never looked back.

A few years later Apple brought out iChat and we began video chatting every weekend for free! I am really glad that my father was able to see his grandchildren so often this way before he passed away a few years ago. He got to see them grow and at least my elder daughter remembers him and still talks about him. I doubt this would be the case if it weren’t for my mom’s iMac.

Thanks for everything Steve!

I can't wait to see a spotted Vuitton pumpkin!
French fashion house Louis Vuitton is again putting a bit of Japanese culture on the arms of its customers.
