Sweet!

Now I just have to update my text/image program to mimick this.

Perhaps it's just my screen, but it doesn't look like him.

It looks good, but it doesn't look very much like Jobs on my screen either.

The hairline is all wrong, but I think it looks like a Steve Jobs from about 10 years ago.

The text is from the Think Different campaign which was OMG 1997!

So the pic is probably from that era too.

This one is closer

Anyway here's the text...

"Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."

Well it sure looks very much like him, and it's agreat job, done by a student for a class assignment... impressive.

The Think Different campaign coincides with his return to Apple.

Thank's Sii, what a nice memory lane.

Remember the 20th anniversary Mac?

The Cult'o'Mac has posted a piece on how the art was made.
