Steve Jobs 1955-2011I recently posted this image on Facebook without posting it here first.  Brilliant.  The story behind it is also posted with the image, but I’ll re-post it here:

A modified Apple logo has been circulating the web with Steve Jobs as the original bite out of the Apple.  I thought about it, and realized Steve is a loss to Apple, and should therefore be an additional piece removed from it.  So I modified the image, moving Steve to the left side.  My apologies to the original artist.

Yes, I am guilty of creating this version, I confess.  The original modified version–with Steve on the right side replacing the original bite mark–was on a solid black background.  I cloned that piece into a hi-res version of the logo I found in Google Images and reversed it, placing it on the other side, then I cloned a bit of the background fog into the black Steve Jobs silhouette.  Piece of cake.  Since the original one was posted, I have noticed a lot of the tech people I follow on Twitter are using it as their icon/profile image/avatar.  If I didn’t dislike Apple as much I do, I would use my version as my profile image.  Let me know if you see this version anywhere else.  Just curious.  Or jealous.

And speaking of my dislike of Apple, I have been trying since yesterday to get Kevin’s iPod updated to iOS 5.  I didn’t know it would wipe the iPod’s contents, and his backup failed, so now I’m trying to restore his last successful backup, which was in September.  Nice.  Hopefully he didn’t lose too much.  We’ll see.
