Most people are lucky if they can change the world in one important way, but Jobs, in multiple stages of his business career, changed global technology, media and lifestyles in multiple ways on multiple occasions.

Re Domai ad, feel free to use faces from the site.

Any face.
I currently prefer Joyful Nudes. The URL? Not sure, maybe.

"Maybe Photoshop Elements."

Guess what I just got: birthday $!!! :-D So...I think I'm going to go get this and goof around w/it (hope I don't get too used to manipulating photos! lol! :-D I had been thinking of using the $ towards one of those teleconverters (WTH I thought I saw one for half of the cheapest, at the camera shop, awhile back! That's gonna take me FOREVER to save up for! lol!) or a macro lens (yikes! hadn't looked @ these prices, yet! Fortunately, they've got a new "beggar's" lens, now! Yay! lol! :-/ ) but I think I would rather start goofing around w/some editing software. It's been YEARS since I created personalized cards and made a brochure for a group I was in. :-D

Cool. Congrats. Have fun.

Back in the darkroom days I'd have killed for something like Photoshop.

Wouldn't work at 170x170, but otherwise nice design.

Just read this. Couldn't help thinking of the irony of how everyone around the world predicted "gloom and doom" the minute that Jobs resigned; lookit the last sentence!
