In a world without Steve Jobs

Savio D'souza | October 8, 2011

1

Apple would just be the fruit that tempted A & E and got the first couple kicked out of Eden. It would not be one of the biggest electronics brands that designs and builds stylish gadgets and gizmos, which strangely enough, also tempt.

2

Macintoshes (or Macs) would be raincoats worn by children in Enid Blyton books and named after Scotsman Charles Macintosh who invented and patented his waterproof fabrics way back in 1824 and which are now a rage amongst fashionistas. Alternatively, the name would refer to toffees packed in round tin boxes that were usually carried back from Gulf countries by relatives in a bid to placate our desi cravings for imported confectionery. Not the elite systems that manage to create a class divide among computer users.

3

The mouse would have been locked up in Xerox PARC's lab in California and only a few researchers would have known that the term also referred to a device that works a computer - rather than the rodent species that deserves to be locked up.

4

The graphical user interface (GUI) would be locked up with mouse.

5

The computer would be available only in beige. And the world would have no idea that geeks like colours. And that non-geeks might actually think that a computer is something that is uber cool.

6

All CPUs would be boxy.

7

PCs would not have catchy names like iMac. And with a builtin screen. Or a slim screen. Or done in classy aluminium.

8

We would be adrift in a less ambitious computing landscape. One in which product developments are dictated by safe bets and your expectations as consumers tempered by decades of compromise. Simply, the computer would not have made the smooth transition to being a mainstream consumer electronic.

9

MP3 players would have buttons and earphones would be black.

10

You wouldn't have to explain to your aunt that all MP3/multimedia players are NOT iPods.

11

You would be using touchscreens with a stylus. And feeling mighty sophisticated about it. Pinching and swiping at your phone would make you seem weird to people who saw you do it.

12

Many Taiwanese and Chinese companies would not have prefixed an "i" to the name of their devices to appear cooler.

13

Electronic accessory makers would lack inspiration.

14

The competition would lack drive.

15

You would be at the mercy of music companies and studios to bring about tectonic shifts in media distribution and consumption.

16

Designer labels would never create accessories that cost as much as the gadget they were meant for. Even if they did, people would not have bought them.

17

Your phone or MP3 player would not be equipped with obscene amounts of memory, that till a decade ago, even your PC did not have.

18

You would have no idea who Buzz Lightyear or Sheriff Woody is. Nemo would never have been found. Monsters would not be cute. You would not have spent over an hour watching a bug's life - or even an animation movie that is set in wasteland earth and based around robots that never spoke a single coherent word. Pixar Animation Studios would never have existed.

19

Gadget design would only have been about esoteric things called ergonomics.

20

You would never think that you could ever carry your laptop computer, almost as light as Air, in a brown paper envelope.

21

Tablets would be something that are only craved by hypochondriacs. Not healthily coveted by all. And the iPad... well, if you didn't have an iPad, you didn't have an iPad... Ditto with the iPhone.

22

Software creation would not be as democratic, or a home industry. And engineers would never dream of quitting their jobs and making it big as App developers

23

Packaging and branded stores would never be as simplistic, yet give the competition sleepless nights.

24

A black turtleneck paired with jeans and sneakers would not be iconic. It would still be a fashion faux pas.

25

There would be no Stevenotes.

mp3 players do have buttons and earphones and headphones are black. take grado for example.

yet galaxy note sells millions, with subsequent products line.... note II, note 10.1, etc.


Electronic accessory makers would lack inspiration.

there is braun, if you still remember... What a Face

The competition would lack drive.


on the contrary, frivolous lawsuit from apple make the competition stagnate

You would be at the mercy of music companies and studios to bring about tectonic shifts in media distribution and consumption.

yet kimdotcom still exist

eh, gw dulu dah pake fujitsu tablet loh.... hanya karena lu ga tau bukan berarti ga ada

Gadget design would only have been about esoteric things called ergonomics.

apple design not ergonomic then? Razz

Software creation would not be as democratic,


r u talking bout open source? android? linux? What a Face

Admin comments: yeah, tapi tombol di mp3 semakin berkurang, dan warna earphones n headphones semakin berwarna dan gak cuma item, tebak sejak kapan? Sejak ipod keluar What a Face

yet galaxy note sells millions, with subsequent products line.... note II, note 10.1, etc.

Admin comments: yeah, tapi semua pemilik gaylazy nut yg gw tau rarely pake stylus, dan mereka menggunakan gaylazy nut as if itu iphone, u know scroll, pinching dll What a Face

Bedewe, u do realize siapa yang menciptakan PDA pertama kali kan? Nenek moyang PDA adalah newton lengkap dgn stylusnya dan bahkan istilah PDA diciptakan oleh CEO apple waktu itu. Produsen PDA kedua setelah apple adalah Palm dan Palm didirikan oleh mantan pekerja apple yg juga anggota tim pembuatan newton.

See, walaupun samsuck berusaha sok original dengan me-recycle ide lama, mereka gak pernah bisa lepas dari mencuri ide apple, karena pocket pc dengan stylus diciptakan oleh apple What a Face

on the contrary, frivolous lawsuit from apple make the competition stagnate

Admin comments: not frivolous lawsuit, justru pencurian iOS oleh google membuat pasar dibanjiri oleh produk bajakan yg iOS wannabe, menutup kesempatan pihak lain membuat produk inovatif untuk melawan apple krn para kompetitor akan milih pake produk bajakan yg murah dan gak perlu buang waktu ketimbang bikin inovasi baru What a Face

yet kimdotcom still exist

Admin comments: yeah, tp jauh di bawah level napster What a Face

eh, gw dulu dah pake fujitsu tablet loh.... hanya karena lu ga tau bukan berarti ga ada

Admin comments: sama dong, dari dulu gw pake tablet windows dan pda n xda, tp penulis ngomongin Macbook Air bukan tablet lho What a Face

Bedewe, lu tau kan desain tablet PC waktu itu sbnrnya percampuran antara laptop + pocket pc (hence the stylus) + windows, dan apakah lu tau laptop adalah plagiatan dari mac portable, pocket pc adalah plagiatan dari palm yang merupakan plagiatan dari newton, dan tentu saja windows plagiatan dari Mac OS? What a Face

apple design not ergonomic then? Razz

Admin comments: ergonomic tp gak cuma itu doang What a Face

r u talking bout open source? android? linux? What a Face

Admin comments: nope, android bukan open source, itu produk curian, dan penulis ngomongin mac vis-a-vis windows What a Face

it still is. only apple fanboi recognize it as fashion.

Admin comments: itu fashion kok, sampe petinggi mikocok sampe samsuck ngikutin tuh, terutama pas mau umumin sampah baru What a Face

selfmade jargon from apple fanboi

Admin comments: bukan selfmade, tp dibuat publik yg terkesima oleh keynotes speech steve jobs yang powerful dan inspirational What a Face
