Five Weirdest Tributes to Steve Jobs

Five Weirdest Tributes to Steve Jobs

An iPad case.

Following the resignation of  Steve Jobs last week, a host of handy folks got busy making stuff to ride the wave of his popularity. Here is some SJ-related merchandise you could spend your money on, but probably shouldn’t.
Five Weirdest Tributes to Steve Jobs

1. The love note. Clean simple, for Apple aficionados only, it declares “I love you more than I love Steve Jobs.” Any amorous missive that has Steve Jobs with a heart next to his name in a larger font than “love” sort of disproves the sentiment.

2. Handmade Figurine. If you have $150 and really want one for your desk, get this a big-headed, smiling SJ brandishing an iPhone before it is pulled from the market, as these Steve simulacrums inevitably are.

3. Giant wall sticker. “Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower,” proclaims this kinda elegant motivational quote. Except, well, it’s a giant motivational quote that you hang as a sticker.  It measures 17’ by 22’ wide and is available in 29 colors. $25.

4. T-shirt. Although the front has a cool mosaic portrait of Jobs, the back offers the proclamation “Don’t Go Steve Jobs!” (Just me or does your inner editor chafe at this…Perhaps it should say “Steve Jobs, don’t go!” or maybe “Don’t go, Steve Jobs!”)

5.  iPad case. My head hurts: help me understand why anyone would spend $60 to sheathe their iPad with a case that says,”You now have permission to act like a twat. Sincerily (sic) Steve Jobs.”

    And every one of them has spelling, grammar, or font mistakes

    Wow Nicole…do you know what T*** means? Take a good look at the first image and do a google search of that T word in that picture you posted. Shame, shame, shame.

    Jobs
    is done but left his mark on every corner of wireless technology. It only
    leaves us asking who won the war between the two titans of modern computer
    technology? Steve Jobs vs. Bill Gates / Apple vs. Microsoft– check out my
    rendering of an epic match-up of their cyborg selves on my artist’s blog at

    What kind of a moron are you? That’s what was on the tribute, fool. It’s not like she wrote the damned tribute. Go shame yourself.

    Oh, wait. I get it. You’ve never seen a twat before. You’re shocked and a little shamed yourself. It’s okay. Maybe one day someone will let you see theirs. It’s okay. It’s part of the human body. No, really! People have them. They’re quite common, believe it or not. Still, sorta sad you had to do a Google image search to find out what one looks like.

    I’m not even sure what you’re driving at here. Are you trying to say it’s improper that the word twat is on this website? Or is it that Nicole truly is stupid and doesn’t understand what it means? Either way, I’m positive it wouldn’t take “a good look” to read and google a word. Just a glance… unless Nicole has vision problems… in which case I think this whole issue of googling should be set aside and getting her some glasses or contacts would be much more important. Wow. I feel so petty now. I thought JuJu was mocking Nicole but in fact she was really brining to light a much more important matter: the lack of vision benefits for writers these days. Thank you, JuJu. I feel that it is only right that JuJu be the chairman of the Write to Vision Foundation. I will send in the first ten dollar donation when WVF is established. I’d send more, but my wife is a writer and we just can’t afford it. Thank you, JuJu, for opening our eyes to this injustice. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    Oh, and thanks, Nicole. Funny stuff.

    Sent from my iPad. ;)

    “Twat” has slightly different meaning and emphasis from country to country.  In some places it’s hardly different from “twit,” or “prat” and used in the same way.  In parts of the USA and Canada (esp. in the 1970’s), it’s much more vulgar and closer to saying “cunt.” 

    (Someone can edit out that last one if they are offended, personally I don’t see swear words as being anything dangerous or offensive in and of themselves)

    according to Google Image search (first hit) I present you

    I agree, in anger ‘Twat’ is a close relation to ‘Cunt’ – it’s the hard T that makes it such an effective face-slapper of a word.  In the UK, said in the right way with enough venom, it’s a corker of an insult as it also infers the person is an idiot. (also it’s slang for lady garden – eg: ‘she had a right hairy twat’).

    I’d buy one if it was signed by Steve. :)

    I got the card for my wife. Since Steve resigned, I’ve been telling her how great I thought he was. She got sick of hearing about it, so she told me in jest “I hope you think I’m that great some day!” Naw, baby… You’re greater! I think we’ll both have a laugh from it. Thanks for sharing, Nicole.
