    Default I never got my hands on his products.

    Hello,

    Here is a comment by one of my students about the article 'Steve Jobs was one of the Crazy Ones':

    Frankly speaking, I don't care about his death. It's like when Liudmila Gurchenko died and everybody was like: "Oh she died! Why?! She was a brilliant actress!" and so on. No doubt he was a genuis, but I never got my hands on his products, so I can't understand the reason of the worlwide affliction. I'm not ignoring him, but I'm not glorifying either.'

    I would say:'I have never got my hands on Apple products.' But does this expression sound OK in this context?

    Thank you for the time and help.

    'I never got my hands on his products' presupposes that the reader knows he is talking about Apple products.
