Great artists steal

Great artists steal

The late Steve Jobs referenced the quote "good artists borrow; great artists steal" and since then it's been weaponized and used to both condemn Apple for a perceived lack of creativity, or to excuse or justify competitors for feeding off Apple's creativity, or both.

There was Xerox PARC before the Mac, critics say. There were Palm Treos or LG Prada's before the iPhone. There were Tablet PCs before the iPad. Nobody copied Apple and if they did, Apple copied other people first! Great artists steal!

Except that's not what the quote means, and it's not at all what Apple does.

Great artists steal inspiration not implementation.

Fun with Google's Project Glass

Fun with Google's Project Glass

Google's Project Glass, the concept video where they show wearable eyeglasses hooked up to a Siri-like voice control system and powerful communications network, has naturally become a source of controversy on the internet already. Some call it vaporware of Microsoftian proportions, others an unprecedented way for Google to record, aggregate, and monetize everything we do, and basically our entire lives. Whatever. The future is never easy and never comes without a cost. When it's here, each of us will determine what we're willing to pay and to sacrifice to use it, or not.

Living Earth for iPad review: The best weather app for the iPad

Living Earth for iPad review: The best weather app for the iPad

I'm not going to lie, settling on one single app to label as "the best" weather app for iPad wasn't easy. On one hand I had a collection of feature-packed apps that provided every little detail about the weather, including videos and interactive forecasts. On the other hand, I had a group of apps that didn't necessarily have as many features, but were beautiful, easy to use, and fit the needs of most people. Reminding myself that I was looking for best, not most feature-filled, it was easy for me to give Living Earth for iPad the title.

Yes, Google, Steve Jobs reportedly did want to go thermonuclear

It's Google CEO Larry Page in the blue (and red and yellow and blue again and green and red again) corner, and Steve Jobs biographer Walter Isaacson in the correct share of white corner in a battle for the ages -- was Steve Jobs genuinely ticked over Google copying the iPhone for Android, or was that just a lot of sound and fury to rally the Apple faithful?

Best iPhone and iPad apps for celebrating Passover

Just like at the first Passover Seder, Jews around the world will gather with their iPads around the traditional festive meal and retell the miracle of our freedom from Egyptian slavery.

OK, maybe they didn’t have iPads at the first Seder, but you can be sure that lots of Jews will have their iPads out at this year’s Seder. Thankfully, there are plenty of apps this year that can keep you connected to the action and otherwise engaged during some of the “less” interesting parts.

The Passover Seder is the meal that involves the telling of the story of the Biblical Exodus from Egypt.  The narrative of the journey from slavery to freedom is called the Haggadah and it is filled with stories, traditional food and blessings and sometimes regional or familial customs.
