So the Pope decided to resign today… I guess that’s not too surprising, even if a Pope hasn’t done it in 600 years. He was a very old man in ailing health, after all…

I’m not Catholic, so I have no idea what this means for the Church as a whole. All I can do is wish Pope Benedict a lovely, well-deserved retirement.

Although the event DID give me another chance to poke fun at the never ending religi-fication of Apple 😀


  1. Has to be one of my favorite. Yet had a good laugh thanks.

  2. Steve Jobs was not a preacher of God, He IS the God :)

  3. Please, Hugh… Apple says and does a lot of things that you would agree with (“think different”, “we make big, bold moves”). Heck, even the idea of being “awesome” that you’ve talked about is completely embodied in the company philosophy. Criticize their profit margins all you want, but Apple is the opposite of the big, lethargic, uninnovative entities you often criticize in your posts.

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

Seth Godin
Best Selling Author

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.
