steve jobs the god

今早,在Wired.com讀到這篇標題聳動的文章《Google’s ‘Don’t Be Evil’ Mantra is ‘Bullshit,’ Adobe Is Lazy: Apple’s Steve Jobs (Update 2)》。

接著,又發現專寫Apple蘋果電腦小道消息的Mac Rumors也援引Wired的文章,再發了一篇《Steve Jobs at Apple Town Hall Meeting on Google, Adobe, Next iPhone, 2010 Macs and More》來劃重點。

這兩篇文章(或報導)所描述(或聚焦)的主題都是:

  1. 正在回答來賓提問的Steve Jobs
  2. Google
  3. Adobe

根據Wired.com的報導,Steve Jobs是這麼回答有關Google的提問:

We did not enter the search business, Jobs said. They entered the phone business. Make no mistake they want to kill the iPhone. We won’t let them, he says. Someone else asks something on a different topic, but there’s no getting Jobs off this rant. I want to go back to that other question first and say one more thing, he says. This don’t be evil mantra: “It’s bullshit.” Audience roars.

簡單整理這段問答重點大概如下:

  1. 蘋果電腦並沒有涉入網路搜尋引擎市場,但,Google卻跑來想搶佔手機市場。
  2. Google顯然想要扳倒iPhone。
  3. 抱持如此邪惡想法的公司,居然膽敢自詡以「不為惡」為精神標語,根本是在鬼扯!

至於Adobe,Steve Jobs則是這麼說的:

They are lazy, Jobs says. They have all this potential to do interesting things but they just refuse to do it. They don’t do anything with the approaches that Apple is taking, like Carbon. Apple does not support Flash because it is so buggy, he says. Whenever a Mac crashes more often than not it’s because of Flash. No one will be using Flash, he says. The world is moving to HTML5.

簡單整理這段問答重點大概如下:

  1. Adobe很懶。
  2. Adobe曾經有資源與機會可以做許多有價值、有意義的事,但他們什麼都不願意做。
  3. 蘋果電腦之所以不支援Flash,主要是因為它既笨且重又效能不彰。
  4. 沒有Flash,蘋果電腦可以運作得更穩當順暢有效率。
  5. 全世界都將邁向HTML5所帶來的網路新紀元。

換句話說,在Steve Jobs眼中,Google是邪神,而Adobe則是懶鬼。

橫在邪神Google與懶鬼Adobe之前的,則是萬能的天神、正義的使者Steve Jobs。

就這麼簡單。
