Star Trek Next Generation New Episode?
Riker: "Sir, we've got contact!"
Picard: "On screen!"
The screen shows a rotating Apple logo, followed by the smiling face of a familiar face.
Steve Jobs: "No, Captain Picard. I'm not almighty." His grin tells otherwise. "My name is Steve Jobs."
Picard: "And what do you want?"
Steve Jobs: "Oh, I just wanted to show you some of the new gadgets we've been developping in the past few months, if you allow. We intend to send them back in time, say, into the year 2002, just to see whether we can still avoid the Borg from taking over the world."
Picard's face lightens up. "You mean the XP attack?"
Steve Jobs nods. "Exactly. I guess we'll start early. A few days before XP is unveiled, we'll place the coolest media device of the time. We'll call it iPod. But the real thing is going to take place early in 2002. We're going to unveil the PowerMacintosh G5, which'll outpace a Pentium 4 at 4 GHz, which of course is only available at the time in theoretical tests. And that's not the Photoshop test we'll run on OS X, this is the Excel test." A big smile enters Jobs' face. "And then we'll unveil the new iMac. As well as the PDA that'll bring the Borg to their knees: The MessagePad X. Finally a PDA that has all the features you'd want, runs fast as hell and is only compatible with Mac OS X. We'll write Linux drivers that we'll spread in the underground, of course, but we'll make sure no Windows compatibility is there for half a year. But by that time, 50% of the world's computer users will have bought a MessagePad X and also an accompanying iMac or even a PowerMac G5. Gone is the threat. But by that time, in July 2002, we'll also deliver Mac OS 11. And we'll buy the Macintosh Business Unit off the Borg - and finally do things right."
Picard nods. "Energize!"
