Moving on...


This is it:



This is the actual garage in which Steve Wozniack and crew built the very first Apple computers.

I feel as though I am touching the Kaaba shrine at Mecca.

I was also going to say something about your choice of time-piece.

I had one of these back in kindergarden.

Why didn't I know that Woz wrote an autobiography?

I haven't read the Jobs book, but I just ordered a copy of Woz's.

I used to have that model in black. The keyboard is garbage. Not to say that the keyboard on mine is great, but the one on that model was really sub-par in terms of reliability and ease of use. On the current gen, it's still a membrane-style design, but the individual keys are raised and segregated from one another rather than just being a flat panel.

There are so many books on the early history of Apple that it's mind-boggling. I'm pretty sure I have a copy of iWoz at home, but it's hard to remember.

Other good books along that line are Revolution in the Valley and Accidental Empires.


If you ever want to feel really depressed and shitty about yourself, how much of a worthless failure you are, etc., spend a couple of hours wandering around the Apple campus.





I took a small measure of amusement in wandering around inside that building while conspicuously using my Android phone to research the surrounding area.


Even the restrooms are stylish and fashionable:



Even the soap is color-coordinated:




For what it's worth, I have determined that the Infinite Loop is not infinite. It is recursive in nature, so that a person traveling along it could theoretically travel an infinite distance, however the Loop itself is both finite and bounded, even in a strictly two-dimensional universe. From any given datum point along the loop, one may travel a finite distance in either direction before returning to the datum, said distance being approximately 0.6 miles. Additionally, it is possible to exit the loop by performing a navigational interrupt at the south-west corner where Infinite Loop intersects Infinite Loop, with the result that you will find yourself traveling west bound on Mariani ave towards De Anza Blvd.


This is the breakpoint from which Infinite Loop may be exited:



LIES!

Sidebar: Google does not mess around!

While searching for a GWAR image to edit Scott's last post with, I dedicated to see if there was anything thematically relevant, so I searched Google Images for "GWAR Apple"

This was the result screen:




See the third and fourth images? I only just posted those four hours ago, and they are already showing up at the top of the search. (And what a hell of a weird coincidence that those two images in particular show up, from this very thread, out of the entire internet. I'll bet people are going to see those and say "How in the hell are a picture of an old house and of some guy's sexy left hand relevant to Gwar Apples?)

I've been there! And I did feel like ****, but mostly in a cheap and shameful way, as though I'd just been shopping at Wal-Mart and I hoped that nobody I know saw me leave.

The company is without question the most difficult I've ever dealt with. Completely in a class of their own. Part of the NDA that I signed was a promise to never mention the name of the company in relation to the project. Since I don't want to get sued like Samsung and HTC and every other phone manufacturer in the world, I'll just call them company 'A'.

I sat in the project manager's office and listened to him say, "I like you," pointing at one of us, "but I don't like you" pointing at another one of us. The dick is so arrogant that he believes it's appropriate for him him to talk to professional associates that way. That's the attitude of the company as a whole and is the way they deal with everyone; it’s Hollywood and they’re the stars. Some people say they do it because they can. On the other hand many people survive stardom without turning into ********.

Meanwhile, we’re currently working on a project with this company:



Now, I’m not saying that I wish company ‘MS’ ran the world, but dealing with them is the polar opposite of dealing with company ‘A.’ During the last phone conference the project manager said something like “I hope you guys are having as much fun with this as we are.”

Another photo from the MS campus:

Nothing gets my dick harder than fast, shitty cars. Seriously. I really don't like exotics at all, but I do love me some retarded fast street cars.

I would love to have a Mirage, or better yet, an Omni


Edit: just because

dat sound

Monday is my favorite time of year

I'm gonna tell you what I really think I like about Mondays
Cause they feel like Saturdays
When you don't gotta go to work
Every day is a holiday
I wake up when I want to
I do anything I wanna do
Can't wait for Tuesday

I really never liked Fridays (I don't)
I can't do what I wanna do (Like to)
Sold out at the movies (Go out)
Can't eat at the restaurants (Weekends)
Everybody want a good time
But the bar's full of cigarette smoke
I think I'll stay home
I think I'll wait for Monday

I live a 5 day weekend
I gotta year long holiday
Thank God it's Monday
The only place that I gotta go be
Is at the show or on the first tee
Thank God for irony
Nevermind the aggravation, modulation
Gimme another key

I'll tell you why I like Tuesdays (Wednesday)
Cause the're kinda like Christmas (New Years)
Come to think about Wednesdays (Thursday)
Are a little like Hanukkah (Every day is good)
Thursday's Thanksgiving
I'm talking about good living
I'll think I give thanks
Thank God it's Monday
