  • #tarteauxpomme: the patience of jobs | reallyquitetired
    decipher there are two basic ways of interpreting God s response to Job s audacious challenge the point is either that God appears in a whirlwind in order to terrify Job back into submission and roasts him for the impertinence of his whining about his trivial problems to the creator of all life demonstrating that human experience is ultimately insignificant in comparison to the work of God or that Job s courage outrage and challenge is infinitely more upright and insightful than the advice of his friends who insist throughout that his misfortune must really be his own fault and that while God is the creator and sustainer of the world directing its every event like exactly what happens to individuals is not part of the remit as far as i m concerned one interpretation is disturbingly fascistic and the other is instructively provocative i know which i find inspiring but i wonder which would strike Steve more meaningfully it seems to me that Mr Jobs would like to think of himself as a radical and a challenger of norms however his character seems to have a totalitarian aspect which regularly bubbles up Apple built and rebuilt its reputation on the back of a strong design ethic a meticulous attention to detail and user experience and a certain sense of providing a radical option the hammer that breaks Big Brother s all controlling telescreen in Ridley Scott s classic Apple advert the problem is that while questions continue to be raised about their commitment to quality control Jobs and thus Apple seems to be becoming more and more the Big Brother figure he it used to want his its customers to hate perhaps it is now time for Steve to step aside after all his fanaticism and people skills took Apple from the verge of greatness to near collapse once before or has he forced everyone in the company to forget that share this Share Facebook Twitter Reddit Tumblr Pinterest Google Like this Like Loading Related 2010 07 01 POSTED BY reallyquitetired CATEGORY Uncategorized TAGS getyourgeekon tarteauxpomme Apple Technology Write comment Comments RSS Trackback are closed Comments 5 Club of One July 4th 2010 QUOTE Turns out that those quotes were all made up Ouch reallyquitetired July 6th 2010 QUOTE http gizmodo com 5579096 bgr says last weeks steve jobs emails are real Club of One July 11th 2010 QUOTE Sorry J I only remembered this comment a second ago Better late than never I guess I d say that some user from BGR is way less reliable than Apple s official statement I mean I guess it could be some cover up of uncharacteristic lunacy by Jobs but I d place a significant wager on the headers being as they easily are faked by the BGR user Of course even if they re not faked it doesn t necessarily follow that it was Jobs doing the replying The misreporting of which emails were sent by which person doesn t
