I have fairly radical views about the future of technology.
But, hey, so did Steve Jobs.
*GASP* "HE'S COMPARING HIMSELF TO STEVE JOBS! HE THINKS HE'S STEVE REINCARNATE! *mock oohooohoohooo-ing* ALL BOW BEFORE THE MIGHTY STEVE! HIS WORD IS LAW! HE MUST BE RIGHT!"
\ Not my point. Entirely wrong. I'm not comparing myself to Steve. I'm a worthless wretch who can't seem to do anything right in any aspect of life. I've no business sense. I couldn't run a company, nor would I want to. I'm just some stupid guy.
I did design GarageBand for the iPad* two months before even the first iPad was announced, however. I did it as part of a writing
assignment for a gen-ed writing class. I was as shocked as anyone else when I saw what I had done come to life on stage, presented by Steve Jobs himself, much less something I had done for a WRITING assignment.
I'm occasionally in line with Apple's vision, is all.
None of this has anything to do with why I feel Windows Phone 7 has no heart to it, I suppose.
Just more clarification of my self-image.*Not anything that Apple actually used. I did this wholly independently, but darn if I wasn't spot on with it. No one's gonna believe me, even though I have timestamped files to prove it. Timestamps can be faked; I understand that. If you really wanted proof, you'd have to talk the professor of the class, whom I've not seen since I turned in that assignment, the final, several years ago. She'd still have the files I gave her back then. Not important, though. Doesn't matter.
