Three Apples Changed the World

“3 Apples changed the World, 1st one seduced Eve, 2nd fell on Newton and the 3rd was offered to the World half bitten by Steve Jobs.” -A tweet from an unnamed source quoted on Al-Jazeera.

“Twitter briefly buckled under the mass of Jobs-related messages, a veritable technology 21-gun salute.” From the NYT write-up today.

Lastly, the FT has a collection of tributes from those in the industry plus a few political leaders, including one quite disturbing tweet from Steve Wozniak: “Keeping family dinner despite the disturbing news. (@ Outback Steakhouse)” The FT writes, “Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak‘s tweet may jar next to these tributes, but reflect his usual outlook on life.” I don’t know him, but that seems a bit callous.
