I am so busy in these days… Too many things to do and not so much time to write something here.

In the next few images, you can see an interesting e-mails exchange between Steve Jobs and a Gawker’s blogger Ryan Tate. It is very interesting how Ryan is able to gain Steve’s actenction writing avout Bob Dylan, a Steve Jobs’ guru… So that, Steve, that usually write very very short answers, this time is more involved… Read and Enjoy…

Drag and Drop your image in GMail

This is a flash news… And it seems to be available only for Google Chrome at the moment, but from now it is possible to drag and drop your image into your e-mails body, and after that GMail gives you the opportunity to resize it in a simple way.

That’s nice… Thanks Google…

MacBook Pro Battery Life Problems

It seems that some users are facing some battery life problems with the new Macbook Pro (15” and 17”).

The battery life lasts about 6 hours instead of 8 or 9, because the system uses too much the second power expensive video card.

This is a topic to solve in Cupertino, but what can I say… My Asus F5SL’s battery life lasts about 1 hour and 30 minutes… 😦

So that… My next machine will probably be a Mac… MacBook or Macbook Pro…

iPad printing?

“It will Come.”

This laconic Steve Jobs’ answer is crossing the web in these hours.

We can’t know if it is a fake or if Apple is going to imporving the iPad functionality. By the way, the answer is incomplete, so that the new answer to ask to iCEO is, “When will it come?”

Steve in the 100 most influential people

Last week, while I was coming back home from a leisure trip, I was reading “The 100 most influential people in the world” from the Time.

In the Thinkers category, there were Steve Jobs presented by some text rows from Jeff Koons (an artist based in New York City), here there is his words:

Apple’s core ideal always been to make people’s experience of computing as accessible as possible. As a young man, Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO, decided to be the Beatles of computing. I once said that I make what the Beatles would have made if they made sculpture, and I can appreciate how Steve, 55, applies ethos of optimism to his work.The tools he has given us, from the Macs at my studio to the iPhone in my pocket, are like clean, new windows, fitting between our selves and our work elegantly, naturally and unobtrusively.

It is great to see Steve stay true to his vision. I can imagine some young artist saying today, “I make what Steve Jobs would make if he made a sculpture.”
