Goodbye Steve Jobs. 

While reading some of the co-founder of Apple's quotes this morning I saw he used the word "grok".  I hadn't heard that word in decades.  Back in the '60s it was a phenomenon and means to completely and totally understand something or someone.  Robert Heinlein coined the word in his book Stranger in a Strange Land written in the 60s.

Grok is a word used by computer geeks now to mean they completely understand how their program works.  That is how the Iphone was developed.  Simplicity and understanding.

Rest in peace, Mr. Jobs.
