7 Steve Jobs, Apple and Mac Related Chrome Themes

R.I.P. Steve Jobs.  Soon after the bad news was heard, I wrote a post about my story of using Apple products.  A few days ago I found new Chrome themes in Chrome Web Store that are made for Steve Jobs.  I immediately fell in love with the iJobs theme.  If you are a Apple fan, these are some Steve, Apple and Mac related themes that I recommend.

R.I.P Steve Jobs, and 5 Awesome Things He Brought to the Me

I could not call myself as an Apple fanatic, nor could I say I am a loyal follower of Steve Jobs.  But I admire his vision and creativity.


Think Different

The first time when I got a sense of his creativity is the Think Different ad series.  I was a kid and that time, yet I could still remember the shock these ads gave me.  Simple but powerful, a picture could really say a thousand words.

The second thing I like about Apple and SJ is Newton.  I have never been a Newton owner, but thanks to a friend of mine I got the chance to play with this innovative product for a few days.  That was the time when iPhones first hit the market.  Even as of today I still think that Newton is a great product.  The user control is very intuitive, it is truly an electronic notepad.  Write with the hand and the texts are recognized.  Delete a word by rubbing it out like using an eraser.  Draw a straight horizontal line to start a new page.  The note taking apps for present-day tablets are simply followers.

Newton and iPhone



The first mac I have ever touched and used was the original iMac.  The OS was a bit new to me at that time, but the way that the computer and the monitor were packed in a stylish and tiny all-in-one case was really impressive.



Mac OS

Being a kid who grown up with DOS, Windows 3.1 and Windows 95, Mac OS is simply a heaven.  I began using Mac OS everyday when I bought my first 17″ iMac, which is the one I am using to write this blog post.

When people ask me why I like Mac OS, I always tell them Mac OS is designed for human and Windows is made for (and by) engineers.  You virtually do not need to learn before using Mac.  Windows is a totally different story.

iPod is not the first digital music player, but it is truly revolutionary.  Just like how Apple made computers that fit in the living room as a decorative piece, iPod is not only a music player.  It’s a companion when jogging, an accessory to wear, a news receiver (via podcasts), a pain reliefer (meditation tool)…  I spend many hours on iPods everyday.



In Memoriam

Many mega web sites have found their ways to pay tribute to Steve.  Google did not change the doodle, but added a line underneath the search box.

Amazon dedicated a corner of their main page to Steve, which links back to Apple’s official web site.

I have already pre-ordered the Kindle ebook version of his official biography, Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson, the pre-orders of which jumped 418 times on Amazon, according to thenextweb.  There are some other books and movies that you may have a look if you want to know more about him.  My top recommendations are:

Google Chrome built For OS X Lion is coming, said Sundar Pichai

Google Chrome for OS X Lion

Google’s Senior Vice President of Chrome, Sundar Pichar, confirmed in a question posted on Google+ that Chrome built for OS X Lion is in the making:

“…In general, we care abt a great native experience on every platform and so the team is pushing hard to get a great stable version for Lion. Can’t wait to try it all out…,”

What could we expect from Google?  Well, Sundar talked about fullscreen mode (a new feature of Lion, allowing apps to occupy the whole real estate of your screen).  It is believed that greater support for trackpad gestures would be available.

Some fixes to make things work are already seen in the latest Canary builds, which is the early test channel of Chrome.

Chromium OS for macbook air, everything works except bluetooth

Chromium OS for Apple Mac Air

Macbook Air + Chrome OS, the lightest notebook with the lightest OS, the dream has almost come true.  I said “almost” because we having a working solution with Chromium OS.  But who cares?  Chromium is almost the same as Chrome OS!

Hexxeh, the man behind the Chromium OS daily build, given it a test.  He loaded a Chromium OS onto his 11″ macbook air.  Everything works except bluetooth, because Chromium OS does not support it.  It takes around 22 secxonds to boot to the log-in screen.  Battery use is slightly better than the stock Mac OS X.

Here are what you need to make this happen on your Macbook Air:

  • Mentally prepared to erase everything on your notebook
  • A 2GB USB stick
  • The original Mac OS X install USB stick that came with the Macbook Air
  • 30 minutes (more than enough for a quick supper while waiting for the transformation to happen)
  • Internet connection (to download the Chromium OS image)

I don’t have a macbook air.  Anyone given it a try?  Is it smooth?
