  • Here are my favorite "in his own words" quotes from Jobs

    "Good Artists Copy, Great Artists Steal"


    "We have always been shameless about stealing great ideas."

    I think those quotes personify the man quite well.

      "One of the surest tests [of the superiority or inferiority of a poet] is the way in which a poet borrows. Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal; bad poets deface what they take, and good poets make it into something better, or at least something different. The good poet welds his theft into a whole of feeling which is unique, utterly different than that from which it is torn; the bad poet throws it into something which has no cohesion. A good poet will usually borrow from authors remote in time, or alien in language, or diverse in interest."

      T.S. Eliot (1888?1965). The Sacred Wood: Essays on Poetry and Criticism. 1922.

      +1 to banned again. We all have our technical likes & dislikes & have been on different sides of the Mac/ PC or iPhone/ Windows Phone/ Android, iPad/ Touchpad, iPod/ Zune, etc debates. One thing over which there is no debate is that Steve Jobs has had an incredible influence on the Computer/ Electronic industries & we are better off with his contribution. It's a moot point whether he stole or copied or whatever. He created stuff which had no peers in the market when they came out. Microsoft would have loved to have Apple as an OEM for the sheer quality of hardware they produce.

  • One of my favorite videos of that of the original Macintosh...

    One of my favorite videos of that of the original Macintosh introduction in 1984. The crowd simply goes nuts. This was before fanboys. Everyone in the computing industry knew what was being released, and most people in the industry couldn't wait to see it.

    I owe my career to Steve. I remember buying my first computer. I was looking at an Osbourne or an Apple IIe. I chose the Apple. That was 1982. My first Mac was a 512KE in November of ???84. I became a Mac Tech in 1992. Today I have my business MacXperts and am one of very few computer techs who are experts supporting Apple. This niche market has been very kind to me. I like to say, ???Sorry, I don???t do Windows.???

    Most sincere condolences to the Jobs family and to all the Apple employees and friends of Steve. He will be missed beyond words. This is a very sad day. America lost one of its best today.
