My Next Laptop Will NOT Be a Mac (But Dell’s)

Comparing to Microsoft aggressiveness,  I was wondering whether Apple is just passive aggressive?

Both  companies are making money selling proprietary, closed-source software (and hardware) . Perhaps Apple just dose it more gently with a wider smile on the face. That is all.

Even getting a legal copy of OS x runs on a virtual machine is almost impossible.

For now, I will stick with Dell which runs Linux smoothly.


The Zen of Steve Jobs

Ever wondered about Apples designers sources of inspiration?
I thinks I just found one, its name is Steve Jobs.

I was worth about over a million dollars when I was twenty-three
and over ten million dollars when I was twenty-four,
and over a hundred million dollars when I was twenty-five and it wasn’t that important because I never did it for the money.

The following is a photo was taken by Diana Walker and it shows Steve Jobs in his house in 1982

STEVE JOBS AT HOME IN 1982

Jobs said about it:

This was a very typical time. I was single.
All you needed was a cup of tea, a light, and your stereo,
you know, and that’s what I had.

•Bare in mind• the fact that in 1982 Jobs was already 27 years old, 2 years after he was already worth more than hundred million dollars, and yet, he kept that elegant minimalism principle.
