Macworld Quotes

Send Article to a Friend

I thought you might enjoy these quotes and notes from Macworld San Francisco. Nothing serious here, or is there?

"Steve Jobs is like herpes. He's never going to go away." -Guy Kawasaki, speaking about NeXT.

"The difference between Sculley and me is that I know I don't have vision." -Guy Kawasaki, when asked about his opinion of John Sculley.

"The first time is science; the second time is engineering, and I'm a scientist." -paraphrased from the inimitable Cliff Stoll, when talking about catching hackers.

And finally, though not exactly a quote, we'd like to acknowledge MacWEEK's cleverly and ambidextrously presented awards. One hand gave Microsoft Word 5.1 the 1992 Diamond award for word processing, saying that "Microsoft has [...] made the program easier to use and more powerful." With its other hand, MacWEEK presented Microsoft with a 1992 Dubious Achievement award. This one was the "The Easy Way Award," which went to Word 5.1, "the only 'ease-of-use' upgrade that managed to make an already difficult program even harder to use. What do those icons mean anyway?" Hmm...
