Ryan Tate (from Gawker’s Valleywag) fired off an incensed email to Sir Steve after watching an iPad TV advert proclaiming it was a revolution:
If Dylan was 20 today, how would he feel about your company?
Would he think the iPad had the faintest thing to do with “revolution”?
Revolutions are about freedom.
Yep, freedom from programs that steal your private data. Freedom from programs that trash your battery. Freedom from porn. Yep, freedom. The times they are a changin', and some traditional PC folks feel like their world is slipping away. It is.
And it goes on. Even if you can’t stand the guy, it’s fascinating to see such an influential figure responding to Joe Public emails.
