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 computer

Yes - you can. Especially when he clearly doesn't get the modern age and playing you for a chump.

Maybe you can sleep better at night if you start thinking of god as an abstraction that codifies the creativity inherent in each human.

I don't know what kind of computer you've got, but mine doesn't help me not suck my own cock. It does nothing whatsoever to stop me, and in fact I think it likes to watch.

Wise old guy quotes:

* Nothing is withheld from us which we have conceived to do.
* Do things that have never been done.

Good stuff even without knowing that the guy did.
