Seriously, there is one fantastic quote here from Steve Jobs that he replied to someone who *dared* to criticize him:

what have you done that's so great? Do you create anything, or just criticize others work and belittle their motivations?

What a complete asshole who thinks he's so much better than everyone else.

So do you create anything either? Sounds like it just stung because most people don't.

I INSIST that my computing experience involve maintaining enough resources to staff an IT department, constant attacks from malware and viruses, applications that won't behave for more than a few minutes, flash-crashworthy ads and pop-unders, and a large group of condescending nerds telling me how stupid I am because after 25 years-plus of unchanged UI practices - I'm the one that's behind the times - not the computer. "curated computing"? How about - "it doesn't suck?" I would like that new computer - the flat one. You mean the one that doesn't suck? Yes please.

They are called computers simply because computation is the only significant job that has so far been given to them.

Working...
