“It is astonishing to think that in the 21st century people still think there is a distinction between style and substance. The two are not the same. The better it looks the more you want to use it the more function you get out of it anyway.”—Great quote from Stephen Fry buried about 3/4 of the way through a somewhat average BBC documentary on Steve Jobs.
“If there is one difference today it’s that things are happening a lot faster. A transition that took a decade is happening in three years today, even though the entire market is orders of magnitude bigger.”—The big bang theory of computing | asymco
This is the worst article I’ve ever read. I’m not sure how this ever got beyond the pitch phase. What about 1992 actually bares similarity to 2012? A suggested alternate title: “My Lawn. Get off of it.”
