Thinking Different about "Think Different." : A Note from Jake

Thinking about "Think Different."
A Note from Jake

Hi Everybody,

I just want to thank everybody who helped make the BulletTrain launch of the MagicStand for iPad and the BulletTrain Express Keyboard Platform for the Apple Wireless Keyboard and Magic Trackpad so successful.

The history of computers has really been a story of people thinking. One of the first to "Think Differently," ironically, was Tom Watson Sr., the founder of IBM who not only espoused the notion of always thinking, but had a sign above his desk (as seen below) that said "Think." Yes, the IBM Thinkpad was named the Thinkpad after Watson's "Think" motto.

I grew up on Apple computers and when I was 16 years old, on January 24, 1984, I cut 5th period and went to the Computerland in Mill Valley, California and waited for the UPS man to show up with my 128k Mac–sound familiar?

In many ways, I imagine I was really part of the original Apple generation, meaning I was part of the first generation to really grow up with Apple computers, just the way I was part of the original Sesame Street generation.

On this very happy occasion, I just wanted to thank Apple for all it has done to change and improve the world of computing and let you know that at BulletTrain, we are looking forward to helping move the state of computing forward into the 21st Century.

"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The trouble-makers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify them. But the one thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do." –Apple
