I do rather like Woz's specs. The rest- no ta.
Looking at the collection of circular icons on my taskbar, I think that some Google Chrome or Google Earth shades might work, too! Or maybe some El Reg WTF?-icon sunglasses.
Apple fans are known to take their obsession to extremes. While that often means queuing outside the Apple store for days ahead of a new product release, some push the boat out further with accessories, clothes, and even tattoos. Because telling someone you have an iPhone is never enough. Now that Apple fans have a place to …
Yeah because it was nothing but sunshine and lollipops at apple when jobs first left but woz was there. Quite frankly I don't know if he's done much other than collect an apple pay check over the years.
I know jobs is just too cool and any true hipster has to be a woz fan but your comment is based in reality at all.
"Yeah because it was nothing but sunshine and lollipops at apple when jobs first left but woz was there"
This is not entirely true, and even if it were, it would not have been down to Woz, as he had already given up all management responsibilities a couple of years before Steve Jobs got booted out. While Woz did remain on the company's staff, it was in an engineering role.
Jobs's insistence on making everything from the ground up nearly destroyed Apple the first time around, and following his dismissal, the company had much better fortunes until Microsoft started to gain a real stranglehold on the enterprise market in the early 1990s.
(Movie) Jame Bond would disagree with you about cufflinks in general.
These cufflinks in particular -- I see that they're open source, with the CAD and software files hosted on github.
Just how did you miss that opportunity for ironic commentarding?
Easy. You launch the black T-shirt. They all buy it. Then you launch the white one. They all buy it. Then you launch v2 (the one that works, because it has a hole for your head) in black. They all buy it. Then you launch v2 in white. They all buy it. Then you launch v3 (slighly more rounded neck opening) in black. They all buy it, Then you launch v3 in white. They all buy it. Shiny black. Shiny white. Any goddam tiny change you want - the mugs will queue for hours to be amongst the first ten thousand to have one.
Meanwhile you patent the T-shirt and sue Marks and Spencer.
Yes, pure click-bait*

You omitted the excellent "iPood!" creatd by Sea to Summit, for those who act like bears in the woods and wish to be tidy afterwards.
Sadly a certain Mr Jobs objected claiming that fanbois might mistake an aluminium trowel with a retractable handle for an iPhone (or possibly the other way round) and it is now called the travel trowel. Though I did manage to acquire one under the original name (offers, anyone?)
Why couldn't they make this kind of cool clothing and merchandise based off of the logos and products of computer companies that actually were cool, like Cray Research Inc. and Thinking Machines Corporation? That's the kind of stuff that I would want to wear! And to heck with those cheesy-looking "iOS app refrigerator magnets." How about making a refrigerator that looks just like a full-size Thinking Machines CM-5 massively parallel supercomputer? (You can see what a CM-5 looks like here: http://people.csail.mit.edu/bradley/cm5/ ) Now that, my friends, would truly be awesome!
