>>52953698 >>52953689 MITS Altair 8800 came out in 1975 IMSAI 8080 came out shortly after Commodore PET came out in 1977 Apple II came out in 1977 >Steve Job invented stuff No. Steve copied stuff and and people claims that he invented it.
>>52953689 There were at least 8 generations of personal computers existing before Apple even came into existence. Apple is just one step and not the first, and it certainly wouldn't be the only one who would continue to logical evolution of the personal computer into what it is today.

>>52953698 >Steve Jobs invented the modern computer. Steve WOZNIAK, didn't invent RAM, didn't invent the CPU, didn't invent the GPU, didn't invent the HDD, didn't invent motherboards, didn't invent RAM...
>>52953775 >MITS Altair 8800 came out in 1975 nobody cared >IMSAI 8080 came out shortly after nobody cared >Commodore PET came out in 1977 someone barely cared >Apple II came out in 1977 This is when people started caring. I remember entire university labs filled with Apple IIs >Steve Jobs didn't invent stuff He invented the entire trajectory of useful and inspirational computing
>>52953851 Uhuh. It's a little more complicated than that. Try posting patents next time. I assume you didn't because we can't have people seeing that the list is much bigger than Steve Jobs, and cross-referencing individuals in the list, now can we?
>>52953851 >iPhone a smartphone IBM Simon, Samsung Vessel, Samsung Slide already exist. All apple did was improve the smartphone >Retina Display correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't retina display just some term apple came up with for displays higher than a certain PPI? The did not invent pixels or and new type of display, all they did was to lump pixels closer to each other >ipod An over glorified MP3 player >Macintosh That's just a name given to a PC that apple made. Apple did not invent the PC >ipad Other tablets existed before did. What did apple invent
And notice I used 'Apple' in all my examples because lets face it, Jobs did not invent it. The engineers in Apple did
>>52953922 He didn't. Cross-referencing the other inventors except Steve Jobs shows people who are actual engineers with actual inventions in comparison to a marketer like Steve Jobs. Steve Jobs gave an idea, Manock and Oyama gave the design, Steve Wozniak's inventions paved the inner workings. Kill yourself.
>>52953765 he was not a huge influence on tech. He was a marketing figure. He has the same place for computers as Ronald McDonald have for hamburgers. A marketing personality that never invented anything, but still was successful
>>52953939 Sure, since patent trolling is mostly people who bought patents rather than made them. Sadly for you, the names in these patents for Apple devices are all engineers and designers who are known to have created this shit, and who have valid and legit academia. But do continue being butthurt. Also, Apple is one of those patent trolls.
>>52953971 He is not stupid, if he was wrong then you would have pointed out his mistakes, which you can't because he did not make any mistakes so you are left with a ad hominem logical fallacy as your only "argument".
>>52954018 Yeah, he's honorably mentioned. Sadly he didn't have the knowledge or skills to actually design those things, as evident by actual designers and engineers named in the patent, so it's pretty obvious why any site trying to credit Steve Jobs never puts out the patents. It becomes obvious he merely marketed and had a vision, but the design and creation were steps following "having a vision" he didn't do. If it weren't for Manock giving the design, and him bringing in Oyada to help, what you know as Macintosh wouldn't have at all looked as it does now.
the free market is awful. it's a tyranny of the normie majority and rule by the most convincing marketing department.
kind of like democracy itself
>>52954125 apple actually did some neat things, like supporting user themes and constantly improving usability. then steve jobs came in with his severe case of autism and decided that OS X would have the worst UI ever made, forever.
>>52954145 It's called brand image and being intuitive, nerd. If you were a successful businessman or a dumb soccer mom you'd see the value in a computer that pisses off moderately intelligent and/or individualistic people aka "90% of the world population".
>>52954253 >Jobs was a fucking douche, both to his clients and his employees. who the fuck cares? If you're a pussy then you don't deserve to work with Jobs anyway.
>He was a greedy and egostistical bastard, And?
>He was just an "ideas guy", his only contribution to the tech world was Apple's business model based on overpriced products marketed as exclusive shit aimed to clueless consumers. You mean his contribution was being an excellent motivational guru for technology. He inspired people to create organic technology instead of the cold lifeless shit that was flooding the market in the 70s (and that would later inspire the niche linux market).
>Unlike RMS, I'm actually glad he's dead, one less douchebag in the world. RMS is a meme and delusional. The only people he inspires are basement dwelling nerds who have no impact on society.
I've never noticed a difference between this "organic" tech and this "lifeless" tech except for the former having a sterilized, corporate aesthetic and lots of purposeful omissions of features that are "too confusing/complex", ahem, i mean, "unintuitive"
By organic do you mean "akin to organic life in having zero or idiosyncratic functionality, and no more than it needs to survive"?
>>52953765 No, you mean easily moulded minds that will help you change the world.
>Introduce inferior tech that makes you more money, like laptops with only one port and no exchangable parts >Sell it to teens >If anyone wants the superior tech back they get met with "get with the times grandpa just buy a fucking adapter lol geriatric autist" and "oldfeature is dead, use the cloud" >rake in the dosh on rapid device replacement, cloud services, and new adapters and cords
>>52953652 > you wouldn't being using a computer now. He polished some existing technologies so that they're marketable to the masses, which enables economy of scale. That's about it. Had he not done it, someone else would still do it, but adoption would be slower, and limited to a nerd's realm.
Personally, I don't like him for popularizing chiclet keyboards, glossy displays, all touch devices, and unserviceable consumer electronics.
>>52955387 >They're just sucking RSM's 'free as in freedom' dick. If Stalmanu suddenly came out and said the Bill Gates was cool, they'd be all installing Win 10 by now. This. Stallman's GPL because he doesn't like "big wealth" is one impediment against a middle class of programmers.
>>52953652 You know whats ironic you fucking moron? Wozniak doing all the programming and engineering and this fucking faggot earning all the praise. Jobs was not a tech guy, he was a fucking artist. A bad one. He started the whole form > function movement in the tech industry that brings us slim phones that run out of battery within a day, laptops with only one port and other shitty, useless products. Wozniak even said it would be the best for the consumer if they developed an open environment, with expand ability, more RAM etc. but this faggot dumped it all because he thought of tech as some kind of art. Which it is not. Its quite the fucking opposite. I hope this fag burns in hell for keeping us back so much.
