What has happened reminds me of the Homebrew Computer Club: A bunch of nerdy youngsters were tinkering around with their Homebrew when along came Wozniak and Jobs who realized what the heck was going on, and what was doable and did it. Decades later, Jobs and co. peered over the fence at the mobile phone world and saw a bunch of nerdy Geeks tinkering with Qualcomm's BREW and mobile phones and small computers and decided that they would do the same again. Hey presto, whiz bang, the iPhone and bingo, the iPad.

Steve Jobs must have been the Second Coming as he has turned loose the peer to peer mobile Cyberspace revolution. The Romans were up against Jesus's peer to peer revolution and tried hard to skoosh it but the Vatican ended up ruling Rome, with Saint Peter's and the Sistine Chapel far more interesting than the Colosseum. Now that he's safely dead, he can't resist being made into the Second Coming. Being dead is great for creating legends. I met Steve Wozniak at a Segway rally a few years ago so I claim to be one of the apostles. Please elect me the first Papal authority on "Steve Jobs" which is just an anagram and disguise for "Jesus". The v is a u as in Bvgalri [the Italian firm ]. So we should write it Jesvs to differentiate Steve from the first time around. The original Book of Job:

See how he just sneaked in amongst us and perhaps didn't even know himself that he was the conduit for the resurrection, though he adopted the idea anyway.

Here's the original, with God firing up Adam, now we need a similar picture with Jesvs firing up Siri.

Does anyone know an artist as good as Michelangelo?

Send money and I'll get the show on the road. Large denominations are acceptable. Any acolytes wanting a position, applications will be accepted after 12 March [around the ides of March].

Meanwhile, The Rapture obviously means those who believe will literally be transformed into Avatars, freed of their bodily functions, roaming through Cyberspace. Now we need Armageddon and the Mayan calendar - oh, that's handy, the Mayan calendar ends this year so we don't have to wait long. "Beam me up Scotty" won't involve a physical reincorporation of 70kg of wet chemistry in another location. It will be more like The Matrix. A lot of baby boomers, noticing their declining physiological functions, and not to put too fine a point on it, their cognitive competence, would be starting to think that such a reincorporation as an Avatar in Cyberspace would be a better choice than the alternative.

Imagine having that whole Google data base as auto-recall as though it really is just your own personal memory.

Rather than have discussion here, which rapidly becomes politics, I have started a stream of consciousness about Steve Jobs as JESVS here:

Mqurice and Jesvs, together to the end.

WARNING - do NOT send money to fake imitators Made in China [or anywhere else]. Their's will be made of melamine or something.
