: Answers"> Please, Please, Think Different: Answers Question 10. In the first expression of Apples 1997 "Think Different" advertising campaign, Apple paid tribute to:
Answer: C. The Crazy Ones
When you read the advertisement, we can understand that its supposed to be a poem. One where the poet couldnt find a rhyme for "them." And how much are those old Think Different posters worth? Start looking in the back of the server closet for them. According to the Redlight Runner store, the Sinatra poster is priced at $249.95. And Bob Dylans poster is marked down to $299.95 from $499.95. Poor Joan Baez is only $79.95. Question 11. Put these names for Mac OS X into the correct order:
Answer: Rhapsody DR2: A major testing version for Mac OS X. Cheetah: Mac OS X Version 10.0 (2001) Puma: Mac OS X Version 10.1 (2001) Jaguar: Mac OS X Version 10.2 (2002) Panther: Mac OS X Version 10.3 (2003) Tiger: Mac OS X Version 10.4 (2005) Leopard: Mac OS X Version 10.5 (Expected Q1 2007) According to a post by Frank Warner at Code Comments, there are some 36 wild cats in the genus. So, theres decades to go for the current branding scheme. In 2003, Apple registered four cat trademarks with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for Cougar, Lynx, Leopard and Tiger, so Cougar and Lynx would appear to be due in the future. Sometimes, a picture is worth a thousand or so words. Check out the visual aid at kernelthread.com that shows the family trees of OpenStep, Rhapsody, Mac OSX and Darwin. It really puts all the pieces together. Question 12. Think Retail According to Apples recent Q4 filing with the SEC, the company had 136 stores open as of Jan. 31. But not all states are blessed with the Apple retail experience. How many states have at least one store? Bonus Question: Name five states without a single store. Answer: 31 states have an Apple store. And three countries: Canada, England and Japan. With Stores
