Funeral for the Powerbook

Ryan and Powerbook

Snark factory is hosting a “Funeral for the Powerbook” on Wednesday, January 18th at House of Shields in San Francisco. Come on out and have a drink as we say goodbye to an old friend. More info on

PowerBook October 1991- January 10, 2006, Born in Cupertino, CA, she was the thirty-first daughter of Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. A graduate of the Motorolla 68000 series processors, active matix screens and dark plastic, she spent the latter years of her life in Titanium and Aluminum, working with PowerPC processors. A lover of mobility, she was carried many places, by many people, where she composed emails, created websites and surfed the Web. She is survived by her younger siblings iBook, PowerMac and iMac and will be dearly missed by all.

Coincidently, my friend DJ Justin Credible will be spinning tunes tomorrow night at House of Shields as part of their “Hump Me Wednesdays”. This should make for a great mix of freaks and geeks.

UPDATE: Here are a few photos that I shot at the event.
