Literally Spinning in His Grave: Steve Jobs Reacts To Apple’s Pencil Via The Magic Of Animation


Steve wouldn’t be happy with the Pencil

If you knew your tech, you’d know that Steve Jobs would have been furious if he would have still been around when Apple unveiled the Pencil a few days ago. Steve didn’t mince words about what he thought about devices that used a stylus. “Who wants a stylus?” Jobs said while introducing the iPhone. “You have to get ’em, put ’em away, you lose ’em. Yuck! Nobody wants a stylus. So let’s not use a stylus.” If Steve was around, he would have torn Tim Cook and the rest of Apple a new one, which would have been pretty entertaining, to say the least.

Well, a group called Taiwanese Animators made a video depicting what Jobs would have done if he heard about the Pencil. Obviously the entire thing is a joke (he is literally spinning in his grave) but we can’t help to think what Jobs would really have done if he were still alive today. To be honest the Pencil is an attractive device for people seriously considering the iPad Pro as a productivity tool, though it’s definitely not for everyone. While the video linked above is certainly animated, it is in no way for kids, so parents, be warned.
