A few more about Steve Jobs →2 min read Published by Lee Reamsnyder Permalink
I need to stop reading all of these.
Sean O’Neal at the Onion AV Club posted a very touching and thoughtful obituary. (Via @khoi)
In O’Neal’s piece was a link to some press releases that included Pixar’s John Lasseter:
He saw the potential of what Pixar could be before the rest of us, and beyond what anyone ever imagined. Steve took a chance on us and believed in our crazy dream of making computer animated films; the one thing he always said was to simply ‘make it great.’
The Atlantic’s In Focus blog has the definitive picture gallery. If you needed a new definition of “disposable income”, an iPad at a makeshift wake will do ya.
Neven Morgan (via Marco Arment) describes what it was like knowing that Steve Jobs was using your app:
It was highly unlikely that a some crappy bit of UI I made would result in an email from Steve, of course. But what did happen was, I installed a sort of innerSteve, an Angel of Better telling me to make it simpler, try once more, don’t forget to delight, and remember that greatness is possible.
Walt Mossberg shares a series of alternately touching and amusing anecdotes:
Sometimes, not always, he’d invite me in to see certain big products before he unveiled them to the world. He may have done the same with other journalists. We’d meet in a giant boardroom, with just a few of his aides present, and he’d insist — even in private — on covering the new gadgets with cloths and then uncovering them like the showman he was, a gleam in his eye and passion in his voice.

And, for something a little different, Kissing Suzy Kolber’s “Emmitt Smith”:
Think of all the ways Steve Jars resolutionized the world we live in today. I used to listen to records on vagina. Now? I listen to MPGs! On my iPrawn! You can’t tell me the iPrawn wasn’t a FRAMECHANGER! Some might argue that the iPrawn did more to hurt the music industry than it helped, but I think those people are sport-sighted. Thanks to the iPrawn, and the iPack, people are constipating in ways we never imagined!
