… og se nu at få det sagt ordentligt

UK slang. An extremely awkward, uncomfortable situation …

“If the automobile had followed the same development cycle as the computer, a Rolls-Royce would today cost $100, get a million miles per gallon, and explode once a year, killing everyone inside.”

(Robert X. Cringely)

Robert X. Cringely is the pen name of both technology journalist Mark Stephens and a string of writers for a column in InfoWorld, the one-time weekly computer trade newspaper published by IDG.

Mark Stephens was born in 1953, in Apple Creek, Ohio. He earned a bachelor’s degree from the College of Wooster in Ohio[1] in 1975 and a Master’s degree in Communication from Stanford University in 1979, where he also pursued work toward a doctorate. He was employee #12 at Apple, Inc.

  1. Mark Stephens arbejder for Apple, så mon ikke han skyder efter Bill Gates, snushane hos Apple, der har udtalt: Hvis General Motors havde fulgt udviklingen i samme takt som computerindustrien, ville en bil koste 25$ og køre 5000 km på literen.
    Som jeg ser det, ville den bil være blevet så lille, at den ikke kunne rumme mennesker, se bare, hvordan computerne er blevet mindre og mindre, ikk’?🙂

    • Jo jeg er ret sikker på at Mark Stephens skød efter Microsoft –
      Og tillad mig at låne din kommentar til dagens humoristiske kommentar (senere, jeg skal gøre klar til tømrerarbejde i køkkenet og afsted til Thomas i Holte for at spille lidt klaver.)
