Hi! My name is Cédric Bozzi, I make websites and iOS apps, and this is my blog about technology (mostly a Twitter archive, really).

Ack. Bad software update, bad!

I hadn’t even noticed Mail.app was going to be affected by the update — but then, I don’t recall reading the release notes at all.

John Gruber:

I continue to believe that the best reason to believe that Apple is going to do a mobile phone is that (a) you know Steve Jobs uses a mobile phone; and (b) there’s not a single existing mobile phone that’s good enough to make Jobs happy.

Or does he? Imagine the chain of events: Steve Jobs agrees to license iTunes to Motorola; then Steve Jobs sees what crap a Motorola phone is, and decides to limit the iTunes licensed software to one hundred tracks, because the ROKR isn’t worthy of Apple. That hypothesis only works if the Motorola phone is the first instance of a mobile phone Jobs has ever been closely exposed to — otherwise he’d have known in all of ten seconds that Motorola was the worst possible partner for this endeavor.

Apple thinks I am a whiny kid who looks like he sleeps under a bridge. A kid who murmurs snidely to himself. A kid who can’t grow a beard to save his life. Specifically, this kid.

Apple thinks I’m Warren Cheswick from Ed, Justin from Dodgeball, and Darry Jenner from Jeepers Creepers. All stammering awkward kids, played for a laugh.

Well, yeah. But he was cute in Jeepers Creepers, and he’s hot in those commercials. Perfectly fine with me. And, come on, you know he’s just the epitome of the Mac-using cool kid — and a young Steve Jobs’ slightly cuter, fitter alter ego. A perfect choice for the part.
