My Optional Name:
Christ, only a complete retard would store personal things like photos, résumés, etc. on their work computer without at least a backup copy already. You should ALWAYS assume IT may come in one day and wipe/replace that computer for whatever reason. Worse, assume you may get canned without notice and lose access to it.

'pure gold.' this assessment of modern office culture brought to you by someone who has never worked in a modern office.

Just Saying...:
My Time Machine drive is owned by me, not the company, and never leaves my house.

Just saying.

I am picturing Grubs strolling into the office with his iPad under his arm, ready to start his new job as CEO of Fonts, chuckling at the crusty IT guys with their security policies and their desktop computers. "Psh, all I need to do real work is my Apple Pencil and my Apple Watch! Here, watch me take this note!"

I meant "VP of Fonts"...please forgive me.

@ass:

Gruber doesn't use an iPad much, if at all. His main tool is an iMac with Apple Extended Keyboard II.

He's a shithead, but he's not one of those "does everything on mobile devices" guys.

YUUUGE news in the Apple world today. Do you think Grubs is contemplating what it means for Apple and the industry, or is he waiting for someone else to write his opinion to link to?

@ass:
What huge news? You can't possibly mean that tax ruling which is just something for tax attorneys to jerk off in court over for the next 10 years, can you?

Yes, that. Cook posted a letter about it today so I'd say it's pretty big. 14 billion big. Of course there will be years of appeals but most of what I've read says Apple has no chance of winning. Public (internet) opinion is that the letter is not going over so well. Tone deaf and playing to emotions, complete with vintage Jobs photo.
