  1. Yeah, it’s fascinating how Apple was (and is) able to appropriate icons of history for their own commercial purposes, and totally get away with it. Can you imagine if Microsoft, or Ford, or Dell, or Qwest tried to do that?

    Somehow Jobs and Apple have earned the right.

    Maybe it’s because they’ve proven that they are sincere. On principle they’ve repeatedly aschewed the opportunity to sacrifice quality for the profits of commoditization.

    Or maybe it’s because in 25 years that same video will end with a little clip of Steve Jobs carrying on about matching inspiring design and style with technology that would change the world.

  2. Like you said, I think they can do it, because they mean it. They are thinking differently. They are sincere. They really believe in this whole business of changing the world.
