Apple Lisa gets transformed into a powerful computer.
“I say this as people relate more to a classic car than a classic computer. I love the Lisa and she brings a smile to my face every time I use her. Nothing else brings me the joy that I get from the Lisa.”

I just ran across this excellent and important critique of the Jobs bio. Gruber gets it right.

Why Publishers Don't Like Apps - Technology Review
And Technology Review? We sold 353 subscriptions through the iPad. We never discovered how to avoid the necessity of designing both landscape and portrait versions of the magazine for the app. We wasted $124,000 on outsourced software development. We fought amongst ourselves, and people left the company. There was untold expense of spirit. I hated every moment of our experiment with apps, because it tried to impose something closed, old, and printlike on something open, new, and digital.

Last fall, we moved all the editorial in our apps, including the magazine, into a simple RSS feed in a river of news. We dumped the digital replica. Now we're redesigning Technologyreview.com, which we made entirely free for use, and we'll follow the Financial Times in using HTML5, so that a reader will see Web pages optimized for any device, whether a desktop or laptop computer, a tablet, or a smart phone. Then we'll kill our apps, too.
