I am Joe the geek historian…

Just finished Apple:The Inside Story of Intrigue, Egomania, and Business Blunders. Not sure to believe everything that was written in the book (has a history graduate, I was taught how to trust only what you read from primary sources. But still, just the technological advances that Apple has accomplished. The Apple II and the Macintosh. Even their flops were revolutionary and ahead of their time (The Newton and the Quick take) and they are still an innovative company (the IMac, the Cube, and the IPod)). However, the best part of this book was the drama surrounding Apple and it’s leaders and managers and all of the missed opportunities that the company had. I recognized the “Apple Arrogance”; it is the same now has it was back then. Now I have to check out the Microsoft book and if I can rent a copy of Pirates of Silicon Valley. Maybe I am falling into a geek dream, but I would l love to work for Apple, just by reading this book. Sure it was stressful and everything, but these people believed in the dream that was Apple. True, they lost touch with reality cause of the dream, but….they believed in it; they breathed it and lived it. Maybe I’m just wishing for something to believe in. **sigh** Maybe I should start reading The Bible again.
