Tous mes fichiers et l’hommage à Steve Jobs

Avez-vous déjà regardé l’icône de « Tous mes fichiers » ? Elle contient un petit hommage à Steve Jobs. Ou plutôt deux hommages : il existe plusieurs versions de l’icône.

L’icône en question existe sous Lion, Mountain Lion et Mavericks, et celle de Mavericks est différente, mais sur des points cosmétiques.

Les textes visibles (en partant du bas), proviennent tous de la publicité Think Different. A noter une petite différence avec la retranscription de Wikipedia (About au lieu de But dans le troisième segment) et une répétition.

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.

But the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.

Maybe they have to be crazy. How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?

We make tools for these kinds of people. While some see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.

While some 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.

Point intéressant, l’icône n’était pas la même dans les bêtas de Lion. Les textes sont différents. L’icône est plus petite (512 x 512), donc c’est un peu compliqué à déchiffrer.

Une citation tirée d’un article de Fortune.

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.

Une citation d’un article de Business Week.

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.

Une citation d’un article de Inc. Magazine.

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.

How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?

Un extrait d’un discours à Stanford.

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.

Une citation d’un article du New York Times (un peu modifiée).

Most people make the mistake of thinking design is what it looks like. People think it’s this veneer – that the designers are handed this box and told, ‘Make it look good!’ That’s not what we think design is. It’s not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.

Quatre lignes illisibles.

A priori une répétition de la première ligne (In most people’s vocabularies, (…)).

Trois lignes illisibles.

Certaines lignes devraient pouvoir être déchiffrée, mais je n’y arrive pas. Amusez-vous…
