I bought my mom a Chromebook Pixel and everything is so much better now

My mother loves Steve Jobs so much she got a little teary when I gave her a Chromebook Pixel for Christmas. She didn’t open the box for almost 10 minutes, because the idea of having a tech product that didn’t come from Jobs bothered her so much.

It’s not Apple that my mother reveres; it’s Jobs. She’s a physician who cried when she read the Walter Isaacson biography because she was so frustrated that Jobs didn’t seek medical treatment sooner.
