As Samsung and Apple fight over designs stolen from Star Trek, I thought that it would be appropriate to throw this out there. It is a well known fact that alot of Steve Jobs inspiration came from Star Trek, it is also known that the devices that brought Apple to the top are designed after props that regularly appeared in the hit show. So much innovation was inspired by this show, its a shame that things in the tech world are going the way they are. Companies are protecting their “IP”, squeezing for every dime they can, pointing fingers about how each other copied designs, they should have paid more attention watching Star Trek when they were younger.
I would like to share, by far the most popular quotes from the shows and movies. They paint a contrasting picture of where these money hungry companies are at nowadays and where there ideas came from.
Alot has changed in the past 300 years. People are no longer obsessed with the accumulation of things. We have eliminated hunger, want, the need for possessions. We have grown out of our infancy.
Economics of the future are somewhat different, you see, money does not exist in the 24th century. The acquisition of wealth is no longer the driving force of our lives, we work to better ourselves and the rest of humanity.
The challenge Mr. Hofmanhouse is to improve yourself, to enrich-en yourself. Enjoy it.
