Steve Jobs Will Turn Your Life Inside Out

No, this is not a reference to the legions of Macvangelists whose lives have been transformed by Jobs’ irresistibly trendy products. I know that hiding behind the “Macs are just a better product” facade lies the sordid truth, they have given their hearts over to Jobs (below).

“Come to me, all you who are weary and PC-burdened, and I will give you rest”

No, no I’m referring to you standing over the pit of PC land if you you dare to leak anything that is in development at Apple HQ. That would be bad enough but how forfeit is the guy’s life who leaves behind (gasp!) a prototype for the next iPhone at some seedy saloon?

Well, a software engineer named Gray Powell did it, read about it here.

Given Jobs’ legendary penchant for secrecy, how is he going to react? I don’t know but for some reason Romans 1:18 comes to mind. Here it is from the Mac Version,

The wrath of Jobs will be revealed from Cupertino against all the carelessness and slovenliness of software engineers who leave prototype iPhones at bars…

I hope Powell didn’t lose his job over this (according to the Gizmodo piece he might still be there), but it’s safe to say that he might have gotten in some trouble for this fracas.

After all, it is a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living Jobs.

On a somewhat related note, who knew Jobs had a puritanical streak?
