I must buy one of his gadgets some day.
In recognition of Jobs’ design sense and harshly critical tendencies, I posted this to Twitter the other day:
Overheard in heaven: “What is this rococo gate crap?”
(As an example of his critical tendencies: In the 80s Jobs made a sales call to a Fortune 50 company in Pittsburgh. He started the meeting saying “I’ve always considered your company to be mediocre in technology.” He didn’t make the sale.)
Steve Jobs: To live is to change the world. Now he went to change the heaven. RIP Steve Jobs @ www.isadstevejobs.com
For some reason it’s really bothering me that you didn’t just use the words from that iPhone campaign, “There’s an app for that.”
@290b61a3f26efd44687252419cc86747:disqus , I am really puzzled by your comment. Were you somehow thinking that I made the cartoon? Or were you assuming that if you comment on a blog that shared the cartoon, the artist who made it would be bound to see your comment? Or are you suggesting that I should have taken someone else’s cartoon, sought their permission to tamper with the caption, and changed it?
You might prefer the cartoon on the cover of The New Yorker: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2011/10/12/why-does-this-have-to-be-the-new-yorkers-cover/
