I like the fact that it's a cat, on a keyboard, in space. Also, apples.

Had he been friends with Larry Hagman he'd still be alive today.

Wow, it's been a day. I woke up literally with the news of his passing. I'm really saddened because now I don't know if there will be any real innovation... minds like his don't come everyday.

Unfortunately, my experience with Apple products hasn't been very positive. I bougth an iPod in 2005 but it broke down a few months later, and a free replacement lasted just in time to be out of warranty. A batch of Toshiba hard drives was defective and I think there were not enough complaints for Apple to issue a free or discounted replacement out of warranty. I don't have a lot of money so I was very disappointed, and angry. I became angry at the whole brand, feeling that their products were not worth a play, and started to walk away from the fake confidence I gave myself when I bought my iPod (it costs a lot so it must sound good and it should never break down!).

I'm planning to get a new MP3 player now, and I might give Apple a go again. Not because I'm jealous that everybody has one (seriously, they are everywhere), but because there are so few good choices when it comes to external design and usability. Some companies copy Apple, and I would feel uncomfortable using something that looks like... but it's not, some are very nice externally but miles behind Apple, and others, well, they do it their own strange way. I'm not very happy with current iPods having a Cirrus audio chip, because, I read, music sounds really bad and almost tinny. But if they get a Wolfson chip again I'll be happy to consider buying it. After all, I don't want to get blind with a lousy 2 inch screen! I want to get blind the old fashioned way: by looking at porn in the bus!

All thanks to the great and daring ideas of a man and his staff. I want to remember Mr Jobs for his own ideas, and I think I will do the same when Bill Gates, Martin Cooper, Linus Torvalds, Clive Sinclair and many others will lead the way to new geniuses.

That became quite the non sequitur.

Your second sentence is really kind of silly. If Thomas Edison had just died, GordonFremen had made just made a site of a cat floating on a phonograph, would you be really saddened because real innovation was over?

No. You would not. You know that innovation will continue because there is profit motive and there is a human race to improve. The only thing to be saddened about in this situation would be the "Thomas Edison is dead / Lando is not" site posted 25 minutes after the event.

Oops, I'm sorry, it was quite late and I didn't express myself correctly: I meant "I don't know if there will be any innovation in the short term, minds like his don't come very often".

There's a better way to do a radial blur.
