A quote from Steve Jobs at today's introduction of the iPad 2 from Cnet in an article entitled "Apple's Jobs to rivals: You're nerds, we're not"
"It's in Apple's DNA that technology alone is not enough. It's technology married with liberal arts, humanities, that yields us the result that makes our heart sing. And nowhere is that more true than in these post-PC devices. "
And I thought runners were nerds. I guess not.
Another quote from the article:
"Apple, though, believes, and with some justification, that it simply isn't in the gadget business. It sees its competitors precisely as the nerds, the geeks, but not the romantics. It sees them as more prepared to play with their gadgets for the gadgets' sake, rather than to enhance their experience of life somewhere out there.
