Make Something Wonderful


I love that you can download an epub or get it in Apple Books, but the web version is beautiful.


The web version is gorgeous, but I can’t be alone in thinking I’d instantly buy a paper copy of this if it were offered in print.

It is if you got a truck full of cash: eBay is Full of ‘Make Something Wonderful’ Hard Copies – 512 Pixels

Neat! Unfortunately, my cash doesn’t quite fill a truck bed. :frowning: hoping that they’ll do a mass print run if they see the interest is there!

I was blown away by what he said in 1983:

Now, Apple’s strategy is really simple. What we want to do is put an incredibly great computer in a book that you carry around with you, that you can learn how to use in twenty minutes. That’s what we want to do. And we want to do it this decade. And we really want to do it with a radio link in it so you don’t have to hook up to anything—you’re in communication with all these larger databases and other computers. We don’t know how to do that now. It’s impossible technically.

He basically just described the iPad 25 years before he was able to build it!
