賈伯斯名言 – 談 Mac

“We think the Mac will sell zillions, but we didn’t build the Mac for anybody else. We built it for ourselves. We were the group of people who were going to judge whether it was great or not. We weren’t going to go out and do market research. We just wanted to build the best thing we could build.”

「我們覺得 Mac 會賣得非常多,但我們不是為任何其它人製造 Mac,我們是為自己製造。我們是要決定它是否很棒的那群人,我們沒有要出去做市場調查,我們只是想製造我們能製造最好的東西。」

  • zillion (n.) 是「很大的數量」,如:I’ve read that novel a zillion times. (那本小說我已讀過幾千遍了。)  judge (v.) 是「判斷;裁定」。whether… or not 是「是否…」,為常見用法,如:Whether you like it or not is very important to me. (你是否喜歡它對我很重要。)
  • Mac (Macintosh) 是蘋果公司推出的一系列個人電腦。這段話出自賈伯斯 1985 年的訪談,1984 年蘋果所推出的 Mac 是第一台具有滑鼠及圖形化使用介面 (Graphical User Interface) 的個人電腦。
