  • "If you hope to accomplish anything, you will inevitably need all of the people you hated in high school." (Via Mark Pilgrim.)

  • "Has it been three years already? [...] three years to the day after Mac OS X 10.0 began shipping."

  • "We tried hard. But that doesn't matter, because we failed. And for that failure, I would ask, once all the facts are out, for your understanding and for your forgiveness."

  • "It will be extremely hard for your friends or your coworkers to actually remember your email address because it is just too long!" (Via Buzzworthy.)

  • "And we love our independence. We're like the anti-startup. We wanted to do this for ourselves and that's exactly what we did." (Via MNJ.)

  • "The Iraqi-born architect Zaha Hadid won the prestigious Pritzker Prize this week, despite the fact that only one building she designed was built during the first 25 years of her career."

  • "It's hard for a product that doesn't exist to become too popular. If Adobe had actually produced a Mac OS X version of FrameMaker in the 4+ years that Mac OS X has been around, perhaps consumers might have been able to vote with their wallets, but not even a crappy carbonized version was to be had. Talk about your self-fulfilling prophesies." ("But quite frankly, feedback to us that includes conspiracy theories does not garner very much credibility!")
