More fun links for you-courtesy of Arnold Woodworth

Here are links to articles about Apple and other Apple-related topics.

This first one recounts Walt Mossberg’s conversations with Steve Jobs at various times.

This next one is a side-by-side comparison of the New Yorker’s famous Saul Steinberg cover “View from 9th Avenue” in the original and now done with the help of Apple Maps.

Even Apple must have smiled at that one. Now get back to work and fix those maps. (And thank God I still have my old hardcopy Thomas Brothers maps for Southern California!)

Hour long audio:

Steve Jobs describes the iPad -- in 1983 -- that's before the first Macintosh was sold!!

11 minutes into the audio, he talks about "portable computers with radio links" that, someday, people will be able to retrieve E-mail anywhere in the USA.  Some people consider this the prophecy of the iPad.

25 minutes into the audio, he describes his vision of what we call a laptop computer today.

Once again, thank you Arnold!
