Apple is continuing to infuse the legacy of its cofounder and former CEO Steve Jobs with photo posters and quotes around the Cupertino, Calif.-headquarters. The photos of Jobs range from the early days of the Mac to more recent product introductions, and they are simply motivational and powerful. Quotes from the technological mastermind are also featured around campus, such as the one re-quoted by Tim Cook at Apple’s company-wide celebration of Jobs’ life:
“In 2009, Apple sold more iPhones than it did in 2007 and 2008 combined. In 2010, Apple sold more iPhones than it did in 2007, 2008, and 2009 combined. Last year, Apple sold 93.1 million iPhones, slightly more than it did in in 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010 combined. The pattern continued.” - Takeaways from Apple’s (Q4) 2011 – Matt Richman. That is an incredible stat. I think it shows the increasing demand for the iPhone as well as the exponential growth of users switching from simple mobile phones to smartphones.
How fun does that look!? I know what’s going on my Christmas list.
I asked the Game of Thrones community over at reddit.com to vote on what character they would like to see illustrated. The overwhelming response wasn’t a character but a scene: Prince Oberyn Martell vs. Ser Gregor Clegane. The Red Viper vs. The Mountain. What I’ve got here is probably one of three pages I see for this scene. A Storm of Swords, the third novel in GRRM’s opus A Song of Ice and Fire is so far my favorite. George has me digging fantasy for the first time. This page is spoiler light, but the next one won’t be. Stay tuned!
