Like myself, Steve is fascinated with the concept of a machine with only one function: to turn itself off.
Steve’s article begins with a history of Ultimate/Useless Machines including links to other useless articles and goes on to review the two Useless Machine apps available for the iPhone/Pad. I’ve mentioned one of the apps in a previous post, but the second one is news to me.
For those interested in UM’s I highly recommend that you check it out.
If you’re wonder about the drawing to the left, it’s Steve’s favicon. For an explanation look here.
Concerning Useless apps, I don’t own an iPhone/Pad so I haven’t had a chance to try these programs. One is free, and the other costs a whopping 99 cents.
If Steve Jobs is listening, please know that I would gladly trade a handcrafted UM for an iPad. If Stephen Colbert can beg for an iPad, I don’t see any reason why I can’t! (Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more…)
For a mere 99 cents you too can have a virtual Useless Machine with this iPhone app . I’m not endorsing nor am I affiliated with this. Plus, I don’t own an iPhone so I haven’t tried it out, either. If anyone out there has tried this app I’d really like to hear what your thoughts are.
Hey Steve Jobs, can you send me an iPhone so I can try out the Useless Machine app? I’ll trade you a Useless Executive Toy…
