Steve Jobs would have celebrated his 57th birthday this year my friend Chris is a complete Apple Fanboy and his birthday is a day later than Steve’s. So his lovely girlfriend Jen made him this cake depicting him and Steve sitting next to one another on a cake in the shape of an Apple logo.
Chris is such an Apple fan-boy that someone gave him a framed picture of Steve Jobs and he kept it on his desk at work, often referring to him as his “lord and saviour”.
The Cake was Accompanied with a set of Cup cakes with iOS icons on them:
More pictures of the cake and cupcakes:
The discerning consumer might notice that that is an IKEA chopping board.
In case you are wondering what is going on behind Chris, he’s recent’y started to learn some card tricks, I assume that is a magic wand (He’s going to go see Paul Daniels soon which he keeps on saying is going to be the highlight of his year), the can is a can of IRN BRU, and I assume Chris has been watching Game of Thrones on his Laptop.
I ate way too many of these cupcakes…
I saw this T-Shirt on a tweet by Last Year’s Girl and though she admitted that it was not the case for her, I can (happily?) state that it is true for me. Tempted to get this T-Shirt as I was a Mac user from 1984 (we had a Mac 128k) through to about 1998. Technically later as I still used Macs on and off doing DTP stuff at my student union until about 2005. Actually the statement isn’t completely true I wasn’t a Mac user I was a Mac Zealot…
My progression as a Mac user went from the Mac 128k:
To a Mac Plus with a whopping 20 Mb external hard drive:
To the second of Apple’s “Pizza Box” budget Macs the LC II:
My divergence from the Mac Cause began when we bought a Mac Clone a Power Tower 200:
Then I went to Uni and bought a PC because it meant I could do my course work on a computer I could afford. I’ve not really looked back since, I’ve dabbled with Linux, but despite all my complaints with Windows I’ve now (for better of for worse) become a windows user. It’s funny how as late as 1998 I would religiously defend Macs they were just better. Now I’ve come to the opinion that all computers are just crap in different ways. All that changes is what the computer is rubbish at and what it is slightly less rubbish at.
Although to be honest so long as a computer has a browser these days I can get 99% of what I want to do done on it…
