LOL. See the way Jobs is looking at Satjiv? Jobs canned him shortly after. Satjivs resume says left apple in 1997.

Fanboy collector? You mean there are people out there who collect fanboys? Is that legal?

Love it, I loved that Amelio guy. I remember him announcing Steve Wozniak on stage at a macworld I believe, and he completely looked the opposite way when Steve was walking towards the stage, not know what way he was suppose to come from

I have a Quicktake 150 and a QuickTake 200. Both of which take lousy pictures, but at the time were amazing.

I often forget that most of you here joined the Apple world post Job's return. Heck I'm sure some of you were born post Job's return.

Apple was frankly more interesting when they were fighting for mere survival.

USB to serial cable. If you have to run software, consider using an emulator.

Why would celebrities emit more IR...is it the makeup or a side-effect of drug use or Cristal? Is that why they say stars 'shine'? If I bought one of these lousy cameras and used it for my head shots, would I be more likely to be discovered?

Oh...you meant astral stars...sorry...nevermind.

If you look at "black" clothing under *VERY* bright light, it will often have a tint to it - blue and brown are the most common.

Likewise, they have tint in infrared. That tint is generally much greater than the visible-spectrum tint.

Early digital cameras generally did not have good IR filters. With no IR filter, you see into the infrared, so the IR tint shows up *WAY* more prominently than you would possibly see in real life. In real life, these probably had a very slight brown tint. The sensor doesn't quite know what to make of the extra (infrared) light coming in, so it overloads one or more of the subpixels. In this case, the blue and red ones - causing a purple tint.

Amateur astrophotographers (people who take pictures of stars,) sometimes remove the iR filter from their new/fancy digital camera because it increases the sensitivity - and stars emit IR quite well, too. I've never tried it (my IR-filter-removed camera died last year,) but I would wager that a camera so-modified would take similar pictures.
In an electronics lab when we used IR lights I recall we all just used our smartphone cameras to check if the IR lights were on or not... the IR LED showed up purple on my iPhone 3GS.

I can imagine that the meeting went something like this:

Chahil: "Hey Steve! Welcome back!"
Jobs: "And you are?"
Chahil: "Satjiv, President of Worldwide Marketing."
Jobs: "Can you think different?"
Chahil: "Think? Different? Why would I want to do that?"
Jobs: "You're fired, bozo."

Wow, Did Jobs really fire Chahil within a couple of months? But Jobs was not CEO then. May be Chahil went with Gil Amelio when Gil was let go.

In this video Chahil is all front and center towards the end as if he ran the whole show.

I like it and Prince was popular then.
Didn't Kodak collaborate on that one?

I prefer the black and white, as it masks the oversaturated skintones as well.

Of course it doesn't look right. He removed all saturation, which isn't realistic, especially when the rest of the photo remains unchanged. It may have been an issue of the processing used by the camera at the time. It looks like the dark background threw off the exposure control, which can cause weird color shifts in the now over exposed subjects.

Interesting Mr. Chahil who is seen with Jobs in that picture left Apple at the low point and missed out on all the upside and all the fun. Just an observation!!
So true, if he had remained, i would have got to see a fellow Punjabi Indian presenting iPhones and Macs at the Keynoites . How cool would be that !

In none of the Keynotes, hgave I ever seen a woman or a black or Indian guy presenting . The apple SVP s like most of their their products are all white, so unlike Google ! (Android head Sundar P . and many high ranking Google executives are from India )

With that logic, one might wonder why we research anything. As I recall, in 1996 the predominant cameras all used something called film.

by "interesting" do you mean "borderline bankrupt"?

The good thing that came out of the luncheon though was his quote that I still use today: "Software is not like wine. It doesn't get better sitting on a shelf".
Wow tell us more bro...

That quote, albeit true, is pretty silly.
