Take a look at the Mountain Lion OX logo/picture...

Then take a look at the Steve Jobs' picture on the cover of his Biography...

Mountain Lion is.....Steve Jobs.

Must be a tribute to Apple's creator. I could not put the pictures on the forum. Hopefully someone will so people can see the resemblance...

Very creative Apple, and a wonderful tribute!

Great Tribute to their creator in the next OX that brings both OS and OX together as one. Maybe Apple designers used a photo of Steve Jobs to create the Mountain Lion's logo. I would not be surprised....

Come on all of you Graphic Artists, very easy to do now a days... :)

Great idea to the trilogy and keep Steve Jobs influence alive for awhile...

Would be a great commercial or Keynote to introduce Mountain Lion.....show picture of Steve Jobs and then fade out and fade in Mountain Lion's logo....

Thanks Pooshka and Jolly Jimmy for the help with the graphics. :)

Perhaps you should send them a hint. ;)

At WWDC 2012, they could do a small intro talking about Steve Jobs Biography book sale numbers and then fade the picture into the Mountain Lion logo.

That's why I wrote the thread.. :) Apple people read these forums and Steve Jobs deserve some highlight in the next major release.

Would be cool and a good Tribute to the one who started it all...

It's a conspiracy! Steve Jobs is not dead. His brain was artificially transplanted into the body of a mountain lion, making him even more formidable. Should make for an interesting WWDC 12 when he mauls a member of the audience for forgetting to turn off their cell phone.

You're absolutely right. Both Steve Jobs and Mountain Lions are mammals and have the same basic face structure when viewed straight on in 2D!!!

Most likely it won't be too long before ML/Jesus, ML/Muhammad (I hope), ML/Hitler, ML/"pick your favorite good guy/bad guy" start appearing in YouTube.

Unless they use a picture where the mountain lion is wearing glasses and stroking its chin in a mock thoughtful pose while wearing a polo-neck sweater then I won't buy the comparison.

Okay, the sweater's optional, maybe the glasses, but it's a damn cat looking at a camera, and 99.9% of people getting their picture taken are looking at the camera, so how exactly is it a tribute to Steve Jobs?

Lets see the resemblance of the pictures of the other cats looking into the camera, shure we can discover an amazing old tribute (from the very start of X, when they discovered the apple itself didn't look like enough) to Steve Jobs! And by the way to all two eyed beings staring into a cam. Remember the Phanter, that it looked just like an Alien (I don't remember it, but I can start now) :D

Original poster, you've beat me to it, by a couple of months. I've seen exactly the same resemblance as you have, independently. To me, it looks as if Apple has heavily photoshopped SJ into that mountain lion.

Most people around here can't see it and/or don't like the thought. And no, I haven't been smoking.

This thread is funny and scary in equal measure.

Edit:
The human perceptive system is tuned to recognise patterns in the things we see.
We are constantly (and largely subconsciously) comparing everything we are seeing to everything we can remember ever seeing.
We do this to aid our understanding of our surroundings. Its a marvel of evolution.

It can also return false positives and cause people to see Steve Jobs in a picture of an animal.
I can't believe I just typed that last line...
