    Hi!

    I know this is true fanboyism, but I always really liked the famous picture of Steve Jobs sitting on the floor in his empty apartment*. It reminds me of the beauty of minimalism, emphasizing the things that matter by excluding the things that do not.

    I have been searching the web for a while, but I have not come across a place where the picture can be bought, e.g. framed for wall mounting. The plethora of identical images of the motive found online are all too low resolution to use.

    Does anyone know if/where this iconic picture can be bought in large size?

    Thanks a lot!

    Best regards
    Kristian, Denmark

    Does anyone recognize the cover of the LP sitting in the background?

    Any by the way: That room looks lovely, but also looks like it had terrible acoustics. :confused:

    Never come across that picture before :)

    It'll look nice in my new flat which I'm moving into in September for my first year of university ^.^

    Thanks for your replies.

    I actually hadn't thought of that, aggie. The biggest resolution found was 792x530, however, insufficient for a large print :S

    Will just keep my eyes open and hope that the picture will be available for purchase some day.

    Those huge speakers look like they're electrostatic, if they were placed correctly the acoustics probably didn't matter a whole bunch.

    I am really curious though exactly what hifi kit steve jobs was using.

    The turntable looks like an early Michell GyroDec.
