107 thoughts on “Steve Jobs”

  1. I feel the caption should read: “Time for Tubby Bye-Bye.”

    I’ve spent a considerable chunk of the morning trying to work out if anyone else other than family or friends has made such a substantial difference to my life.

    Just hoping that someone else will come along at Apple who’s willing to spend so much of their life making so much of mine so much easier.

    Although he never did quite get around to Fembots or ‘iPie’, so there’s certainly some headroom available…

  2. So long, and thanks for everything you’ve done Steve! My thoughts go out to your fellow ninjas. Ganbatte!

  3. I wish he’d written a book on management. It could have been his greatest legacy ever. I hope the people who worked with him remember and practice everything they learned from him.

    And since someone should say it, I will: Thank God for Steve Jobs.

  4. OSC — According to an article in Fortune (from the 500 issue), Apple did prepare numerous case studies, but for internal use only. I guess you’ll have to work there to learn the best practices.

    And as weird as that SJ picture is, it’s not as creepy as any of those Gruber pictures.

  5. This is not Steve-related, but might be of interest. So over at Macworld, the rumor was floated today that Moltz is the Macalope. Which I suppose would mean that since Moltz is Gruber, then Gruber is also the Macalope.

    If a=b and b=c, then a=c, right?

    I mean, have the three of them ever been seen in the same photo? Didn’t think so.

    Makes my head spin, which is appropriate for Hallowe’en, I suppose.

  6. Nxxx,

    Now you’re just making things up, which is strange because you have always before told only the truth. However, I welcome your new unreliability.

  7. I’m not sure I’d have made that comment if I were you. I darn near didn’t make this one, if indeed I did.

  8. That’s what I get for typing this while at work. On a non-Mac.

    Does it matter that I really don’t have to look at the keyboard?

    I’ll go hide in the corner now… [shame]

  9. It’s okay. I have to use a Windows machine at work as well, although I would never admit that to anyone under any circumstances. You didn’t hear that from me. Keep it under your hat, on the low-down.

  10. I can’t convince my office’s IT people to stay current on the Software That Shall Not Be Named. I imagine suggesting the we add Macs to the mix would give the guy a heart attack. (But from a practical perspective, we can’t, because there’s some software we use that does not have a Mac client. Those bastards!)

  12. Sue, I’m with you. Nothing’s happening here. Nothing at Nate’a either. Somebady needs to entertain us. Guess I’ll go look at the Giga-Post.

  13. Yes, Moltz once was a man of words, if not a man of his word. I remember those days. It was a kinder, gentler time, when people went on picnics, and played croquet for fun. Everybody voted on election days and nobody complained about the weather. Those days are long past.
