A Fitting Tribute

Steve Jobs was a real stinker when it came to getting things right (right in his opinion) and there have been all kinds of things said about how Apple will go rotten when it’s core (SJ) is gone. It seems to me a particularly fitting confirmation that Steve Job’s Biography has been submitted to the kind of sloppy errors he would have abhorred:


The translators must have been under an awful lot of pressure, or be just plain bad, to make the simple mistake of confusing „Silicon“ as in the element and „Silicone“ as in, well, how can you put this other than… breast boosters… Yes, I know, Silicone is used for more than breast-implants but, Silicon Valley is where the computer companies are and Silicone Valley is, well, not.

One interpretation of „Silicon Valley“ would be that artificially enhanced divide between two silicone enlarged breasts, which, I suspect, is not where Steve Jobs was brought up.
