Great things about being blind. Thanks to apple

I've raved about my ipod touch before. but since the death of Steve Jobs, I want to talk about it again. It is rare that a company that is mainstream thinks of accessibility right out of the box but apple has. I walked into an apple store, bought my ipod, and they helped me turn voiceover on and I could use the ipod. I had a bit of a learning curve but now I blog, surf the net, do e-mail, listen to and download podcasts, identify colours of things, read books, listen to music, record my storytelling. And so much more. I am never without my ipod. Thank you Steve and apple. May other mainstream companies learn from your example.
