gingerjet: FTFA "I've been against Macintosh company lately. They're trying to get everyone to use iPads and when people use iPads they end up just using technology to consume things instead of making things. With a computer you can make things. You can code, you can make things and create things that have never before existed and do things that have never been done before."Old dude who sounds bitter and living off his inventions from 60 years ago doesn't get modern computers. News at 11. He clearly doesn't understand that with the tools available today - there are legions of new inventors being created and they are using iPads to achieve that.He needs to get over it.I'm not going to argue with the guy who invented the computerYes - you can. Especially when he clearly doesn't get the modern age and playing you for a chump./I have the same complaints about Woz//and WWII vets///bring on the haters
Kraftwerk Orange: I was with him until he started giving credit to the old guy in the sky.
untaken_name: dittybopper: kmmontandon: Fano:Sounds like he understands what computers are for, ie not sucking your own cock.This is why books are useless - you only consume, instead of write your own.That's true, but on the other hand, you can pick up a book that was printed 100 years ago and still read it. Will you be able to do that with an iPad?It'll be exactly as useful in 100 years as it is today.
GilRuiz1: Too bad it's too late for it to be the world's first programmer, Ada Lovelace
mantidor: Maybe it wasn't Russell Kirsch himself but an impersonator, who knows?
SevenizGud: Meanwhile, while you were reading this, 2 kids in Guatemala died because they didn't have clean water to drink that would have cost about 80 cents PER YEAR to provide to them.
RatOmeter: So stop posting on Fark and go *make* something ;)
ChrisDe: Had I created the first digital image, it would have been porn. Just so future generations could have the lulz./topless Cernettes?
SevenizGud: Quantum Apostrophe: Wiki:"Although Kirsch did not work for NASA, his invention led to increased technology crucial to the 1960s space explorations,"See? The technology came FIRST.Awesome! Proof that with basic science, you can then go out and apply it by wasting billions of dollars on pointless missions that will have no bearing on anybody whatsoever.Meanwhile, while you were reading this, 2 kids in Guatemala died because they didn't have clean water to drink that would have cost about 80 cents PER YEAR to provide to them.Hey, just imagine all the great practical outcomes that will eventually come to fruition if we terraform Gliese Omega-99z!
Parallax: GilRuiz1: Too bad it's too late for it to be the world's first programmer, Ada LovelaceTwo movies coming out about Linda Lovelace, and none about Ada. Sucks (pardon the pun)./last name is Lovelace//got a kick
