but what's interesting to me is the relative absense of computers in the shot. There's a PowerBook on the desk, and a G4 iMac in what looks to be the closet off to the side, and none others. Just seems to me there would be a few more computers at the core office of a computer company.Chaszmyr said:That photo is awesome
It kind of shows how silly Apple can get about these things, since it's pretty well known that Jeff Robbin is behind iTunes and SoundJam.When he generously introduces you to the guy who runs Apple's iTunes development team, Jobs makes it clear that you're welcome to meet him but you can't print his name. Jobs doesn't want competitors poaching his talent. "You can mention his first name but not his last name," Jobs says. "How's that?" It'll have to do. The guy's name, by the way, is Jeff.
Yes, it is an official Time site, it is just the site for their Canadian distribution. It is largely the same magazine, with a few Canada specific stories thrown in from time to time presumably. And, if you recall, has a history of releasing things sooner than their US counterpart, as they did infamously the night before Steve Jobes introduced the original flat panel iMac back in 2002.micvog said:Thanks! Saved me a few minutes at a news-stand.
BTW, is that an official Time Magazine site? I couldn't believe the number of typos and formatting errors.
Absolutely ... now the burning question is if they can pose for such a picture in their pressurized environment, why can't some relatives pretend to be one-tenth as cordial when gathered around the table at holiday dinners?Sharewaredemon said:It's so cute! They look like friends!

One cute bit:

That's a very smart way to go about it. if they dont think that video players will be popular, you give the market a little and see how well it goes. It if becomes VERY popular, you take a few more steps.Steve Jobs:
"There is no market today for portable video," he says. "We're going to sell millions of these to people who want to play their music, and video is going to come along for the ride. Anyone who wants to put out video content will put it out for this. And we'll find out what happens."
Yes. It's been revamped however. That is much more reminiscient of NeXT headquarters where everything was very open door policy and intercollaboration.Lacero said:
Is that Apple headquarters? Cool. Nice this story hits a week before the newsstands.
This is why i don't think development has slowed for the Powerbook like previously rumored.From the Article said:Products get worked on in parallel by all departments at oncedesign, hardware, softwarein endless rounds of interdisciplinary design reviews.
