The secret diet of Steve Jobs
As a just recently force-converted ex-OS 9 user (Apfel Komputer) i probably had to run into Steve Jobs’ secret diary at some point soon.
It’s not, that i had major troubles the last weeks to clean up an used ibook under OS 10.4.11, which was still filled with invisible and massively hard disk space-taking ex-owners private data.
I just needed to give myself a UNIX command line treatment for 5 wasted days, before i could locate and finally delete 30 gigabytes of already deleted data, only to be able to use this space again.
All this, while the news are full of Apfel users being ultimately pissed-off of dictatory restrictions to the use of over-prized iPhones, or just flaky security flaws in the newest MAC OS X version.
Ah what do i care. But when i got that iBook some weeks ago i had already decided not to ever upgrade a stable configuration, just as i didn’t upgrade my old Pizmo powerbook to anything higher than OS 9.2.2 in five years.
And yeah, it turns out, that, OS 10.4.11 is as stable or unstable as OS 9.2.2.
But still: I really had to laugh out loud, when, a few minutes ago, i found this great fake blog about Mister Apfel-bosses secret thoughts and realized, how just very normal this company is.
→ “Read about, how “THEY” tried to shut down the liberted [and liberating] voice of a person, who just has his/her own and individual view on the company’s issues, blogged in a wonderfully independent and ironic way.
500.000 dollars, straight forwardly offered by the wrong person weren’t a threat to this pertinacity, of course, although that may leave the revolting person to a secret and unmentioned financial diet, by Steve Jobs.
Compliments! Great move! Laughter, more laughter.
