Steve Jobs and My Mother
Published: Oct 11, 2011
My 94-year-old mother — a lifelong reader, mother of a writer and a medical researcher who writes beautifully about science — is losing her sight. She’s been admitted to a pilot program that might stop her vision loss; if it doesn’t work, darkness awaits. But on the just-introduced Apple iPhone 4S, there’s an amazing voice-recognition feature that opens the world for the visually challenged. Watch for the blind woman at the end of the video and you’ll understand why, across the country, some people are crying for happy. And thanking Steve.
