First and most important is the untimely demise of Steve Jobs. Mr. Jobs was the only reason Apple became the empire it is today. He is arguable [sic] the most influential person in the computer industry. I feel with his death, Apple’s will only follow. Without leaders, empires crumble. Just like with Iraq, once Saddam Hussein was captured, Iraq was no longer united. With the tragic death of Steve Jobs, the Apple Empire will also falter, and I believe sooner than later.

Holy crap this thing is beautiful. It makes me want to buy a home just so I use it.

I really hope this takes off to continue the trend of beautiful, thoughtful design winning over cheap shit. Imagine if every piece of technology in your home was designed like this?

Right now, of course, basically just Apple products are. Tony Fadell learned well

Beautiful technology of the day.

the last time I saw Steve Jobs

Steve was heading towards a car parked next to the curb with its door open, waiting for him. The car was idling. A family was standing near the Apple sign outside the building, a common site for people to take photos on their pilgrimages to Apple.

The father turned to Steve as he passed close by and asked, “Excuse me, sir, would you mind taking our photo?”

Steve paused for a moment as an iPhone was extended to him, realizing that they didn’t seem to know who he was. With a hint of enthusiasm, he said “Sure!” as he took the iPhone into his hands.

Touching. Imagine how he must have felt, to take a family’s portrait on a device he envisioned, and they didn’t even know who he was.

An iPad with a keyboard, a mouse and a case [means] you’ll be at $1500 or $1600; that’s double of what you’re paying. That’s not feasible.

  1. The iPad can’t take mouse input. Why would you want it to? 
  2. The most expensive iPad, combined with every single iPad accessory Apple sells, comes out to $1069 before taxes. With a case and keyboard, the most expensive iPad only comes out to $916.

What a joke.

Apple’s non-support of FLASH is like forcing all their users to abstain from sex totally. Not just asking them to use condoms instead. It’s a medieval practice in our modern age of CHOICE!
