Jobs (2)


Hari ini gerimis. Karena gak ada kerjaan, maka buka-buka youtube dan lihat promosi iPhone yang dibawakan Stever Jobs. Jadi teringat postingan mengenai Jobs. Saya tuliskan beberapa quotes yang bagus dari buku iCon:

We weren’t going to find a place where we could go for a month to be enlightened. It was one of the first times that I started to realize that maybe Thomas Edison did a lot more to improve the world than Karl Marx and Neem Kairole Baba put together.

Intinya: jadilah engineer, karena boleh salah tapi gak boleh bohong. kalo filosof, gak boleh salah tapi boleh bohong (baca: mengira-ngira). kalo salah, bisa-bisa banyak orang mati …

The willingness to attempt the unlikely or the unachieveable was one trait – perhaps one of the few – that he and Steve Wozniak shared.

Intinya: dua orang itu beruntung: punya karakter sama, jadi sahabat baik dan buka usaha sama-sama. kalau cuma salah satu yang nekat, apple tidak akan pernah ada.

I had learned one thing about the electronics business by then: you can’t judge anybody by how young they are or how they look. The best engineers don’t fit any mold.

Intinya: yo ngomong ae lek insinyur mesthi rupone mblendhes … hehe
