Beef, Ipad, and Steve Jobs: fuiru One of my favourite Steve Jobs stories was the time the engineers working on the iPod brought their finished prototype to him in his office. He said it was too big, they needed to make it smaller. They said it was as small as they could make it, it couldn't be made any smaller. So he took the prototype over to his aquarium and dropped it in. The iPod sank to the bottom, and as it did, tiny little bubbles came out. 'See those bubbles,' he asked. 'They're air inside the iPod. Make it smaller. "Another story about Steve Jobs was when they brought the prototype for the iPad 2 to his office. The engineers told him it was faster than the first iPad. He took it over to his aquarium and dropped it in. Look how slowly it sank, he told them. Make it faster One time a newly hired intern had been sent out to get Steve a sandwich. When she brought it to him, he looked at it. 1 thought I ordered the beef on rye," he asked. She told him it was indeed beef on rye. He took it over to his fish tank and dropped it in. "Does that look like beef on rye?' He was always dropping things in that fish tank. We couldn't stop him. We told him he had to stop, he wouldn't listen. It was full of stuff that shouldn't be in an aquarium. The fish had all died years ago. One had been crushed under an early generation iMac. The others were all poisoned. He didn't care It got to the point where there was no room for anything in the fish tank. When we emptied it after he died, we found a body in there. We never found out who it was." That doesnt sound right, but I dont know enough about Steve Jobs to dispute it

It means that being equally good/average at everything is much better than being perfect at one thing and sucking at everything else. So don't worry if you're not perfect at something you do! Being okay is better! thelastmellophone These made me feel better thelifeofatubaplayer Also, "great minds think alike" ends with "but fools rarely differ" It goes to show that conformity isn't always a good thing. And that just because more than one person has the same idea, doesn't necessarily mean it's a good idea becausetheintrovert what the fuck why haven't i heard the full version to any of these unlimitedtrashworks Birds of a feather flock together" ends with "until the cat comes. It's actually a warning about fair-weather friends, not an assessment of how complementary people are. monsters-and-teeth I've always felt like these were cut down on purpose evil-shenanigans-alpha I really like these phrases and plan on spreading this knowledge alwayswillgraham The early bird catches the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. its-kk-yo I want to make designs out of these. sunderlorn Funny how all the half-finished ones encourage uniformity and upholding the status-quo, while the complete proverbs encourage like.. iving exciting, eclectic lives driven by choice and personal passion.
