The Distortion Field

OK folks,

There is something you know in your head, or your heart, or maybe just your gut.

Well, here, let me shed a little light on that gut feeling you have.

Just watch this clip from the movie The Corporation.

It's 11 minutes long (less if you skip the ad at the end).

I think you will find it fascinating.  Every bit of it.

See what you think.  And feel free to share your thoughts.

To hell with grammar (and other conventions)

World's shortest obituary:  "Think Different"

'Nuff said.

And here is an iconic Apple ad, which when aired was narrated by Richard Dreyfus.  However, this one is narrated by the Man himself.  Thank you Steve, for being our generation's "crazy one".

"And just one more thing" ;-)

Many times I've thought about what it must have been like to live during the time of da Vinci, Michelangelo, Mozart or Beethoven.  Pure genius right before your eyes.

And only now, as I stop to reflect about Steve Jobs, do I realize we've been having breakfast together all these years.  MacBook Pro, Apple Cinema display, iPod, iPhone, iPad are all before me along with my hot tea and toast.

I sit in the presence of his genius.  Every day.

Can you even imagine what world we might be inhabiting had he not graced our planet for 56 insane years?

Well, he helped us understand that alternative universe as well, on just one day, long ago:

Rest in peace Steve.   You deserve it.

Update -- I came across this interesting graphic while reading many of the tributes to this special man.  With credit to Jonathan Mak ... somehow, like the Apple products we love, it  "just works":
