(The Register)   That 'Prophetic' Steve Jobs autograph telling some kid to 'go change the world' is among the Apple memorabilia at auction. But you'll still need to buy a different cord every 3 years to see it   (theregister.com) divider line

I don't think Julian Brewer went on to change the world.  Which is fine.

/Neither did Steve Jobs

Egomaniac has huge ego. Water still wet.

How much is an Elon Musk "change the world" autograph worth?

Nobody from Apple Records asked Julian Lennon to change the world, either.

A few different chords would've helped, though.

Nine years since Apple changed the 30-pin connector to Lightning, and losers are still whining about it.

Not much of an inspiration.  I mean, sitting in the rec room smoking dope and fooling around on the computer is still, technically, 'changing the world' in its own way.

Prophetic about computers being the future in 1980? Please. A little earlier than this note, "uncle" Eddie Vincent let me hold a full height full length covered with wires prototype ethernet card and told me, "This is the future". THAT is prophetic.

I thought it was a joke about how quickly the Apple cords fray, because all of mine have/do.

Colossal asshole that he was, of course he changed the world.  You can't deny that.

Just to be clear, you would rather have the chance to plug and unplug all of that every time you go, instead of a couple of plugs?

that pic is of a laptop or whatever.. and i get the meaning.  having an available port is always better... but there is a diminishing return.

just how many ports is too many on a device striving to be as small as possible with its internals?  perhaps it could be argued a 3.5 is a must have on a phone.  i have high end IED's and dont miss the 3.5 one iota
