Steve-Jobs-Zitate als Easter Egg in Lion versteckt

Katia Giese 15

Ein besonderes Zeichen der Anerkennung haben die Lion-Entwickler für ihren Chef Steve Jobs im neuesten Apple-Betriebssystem versteckt. Als sogenanntes Easter Egg findet man einige berühmte Jobs-Zitate im Finder-Icon „Alle meine Dateien“.

Mit Hilfe der Leertaste lässt sich der „Alle meine Dateien“-Ordner im Finder vergrößern und so auch das entsprechende Icon im Großformat betrachten. Zum Vorschein kommt ein altmodischer Karteikartenkasten, in dem man jeweils die ersten Zeilen einiger Karten lesen kann.

Aufgeschlüsselt handelt es sich dabei um die folgenden Steve-Jobs-Zitate, die anscheinend in unterschiedlichen Ausschnitten angezeigt werden:

„You can’t just ask customers what they want and then try to give that to them. By the time you get it built, they’ll want something new.“ (Jobs)

„Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.“ (Apple Inc.)

„How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song “ (Apple Inc.)

„In most people’s vocabularies, design means veneer. it’s interior decorating. It’s the fabric of the curtains of the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design. Design is the fundamental soul of a human-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service.“ (Jobs über die Bedeutung von Design)

„A lot of companies have chosen to downsize, and maybe that was the right thing for them. We chose a different path. Our belief was that if we kept putting great products in front of customers, they would continue to open their wallets.“ (Jobs über Apples Geschäftsstrategie)

„Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.“ (Jobs über das Leben)

„Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.“  (Jobs über die Bedeutung von Design)
