I think it's time for Apple to resurrect the "Think Different" campaign... just one new ad with him.

I am hoping Apple does one tribute ad for him now, maybe just broadcasting the original Think Different ad he narrated with his picture at the end or something.

Not sure if Steve would have wanted them to do that. My guess is that his picture will be gone from the home page in a few days, if that. And in his spirit, they'll move on with ever greater pace.

Wozniak.
He has this affable social awkwardness; child-like; honesty. Oddly adorable and strange.
But sincere and genuine. Perfectly wrong for television interview sound-bites.
I love the discord and syncopation he puts into this interview.
Just let him talk, ramble, dump.

I do think she asks a great question in wondering how much Steve, the control freak (my words) was bothered by the ultimate out of control misfortune, his health. No RDF effect worked on his health, sadly.

I think Woz's pregnant pause and breath after the statement "...he spoke like he was really bothered by it..." (pause, eyes drop, breath) really says a lot. Seemed to me there was a LOT of life and relationship surge through Woz's mind at that brief respite. [4:05 - 4:09]

Wow. Those black turtlenecks he wore cost $175 each.

The company that makes them is in Minnesota and is donating $20 from each one sold to the American Cancer Society.

The URL in that Fox story is wrong: the turtleneck makers are here.

They made Fred look, good. :) Awesome.

It takes the Westboro Baptist Church to make Fred look good?

Remember when SJ wore bow ties?

I do.

I got so damn choked up reading this from an interview published in Playboy : http://gizmodo.com/5821429/that-time-in-1987-when-playboy-interviewed-steve-jobs?tag=steve-jobs

Even Mossy Wallberg got me teared up -- http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203476804576613732041665792.html?mod=WSJ_hp_mostpop_read

I suspect those of you with kids sorta know why. My son is 8 years old, my daughter will be 10 in November. I'll 46. When I was their age I was going to Computer Faires, longing to figure out a way to convince mom & dad that I needed an Apple ][.It was the f'ing Red Ryder BB gun for a different generation. I had more luck convincing them to spring for a copy of the Whole Earth Catalog, though they thought it was awfully hippy-ish at least was cheap. Eventually we got a couple at my grade school. By the time I was in collge I was using a //c, and the Mac came out. The world has changed so much so fast.

Looking slim, FLL. And though the context was sad, I had to laugh a bit at the Showing of the Ancien Macs.

If you like flashing back, listen to the current Mac Geek Gab

BBS, Apple ][s, PDPs, fonefreakin', good look back. I just finished it on the long drive back from bringing my mom back from hospital. Nice podcast.
