“If Apple were turned over to an ace team of pundits, analysts & journalists to run, it would be bankrupt by the spring of next year.”
“I believe that if Apple stuck by the What Would Steve Do playbook, it would truly be doomed—by looking backward and second-guessing key decisions based on strategies that are increasingly out of date. Steve Jobs famously changed his mind all the time, but his posthumous wisdom doesn’t have that capability. Instead, Apple executives are making interesting and risky decisions—just as Steve Jobs once did.”
A big thank you to @Applespotlight.
“Apple and Crate & Barrel stand out as excellent examples of how to design the perfect email. Google’s emails, on the other hand, lack consistency and seem rather haphazardly generated. Emails from Apple and Crate & Barrel are advantageously laid out, with beautiful imagery that’s logically arranged and information that’s easy to digest (if not concise). They’re not afraid to make us scroll; they don’t cram content above the fold.”
Happy Brithday, Apple
“I can’t be arsed to go out there and defend Apple products, they speak and sell for themselves. If you think the world is fine enough in all other areas for there to be room for you to be all angry about Apple, then go ahead and be angry. It’s your spleen. Do what you like with it.”
“You know we’re constantly taking. We don’t make most of the food we eat, we don’t grow it, anyway. We wear clothes other people make, we speak a language other people developed, we use a mathematics other people evolved and spent their lives building. I mean we’re constantly taking things. It’s a wonderful ecstatic feeling to create something and put it into the pool of human experience and knowledge.”
