"You can't connect the dots looking forward;
you can only connect the dots looking backward."
The Apple guy
OK, I'm stumped. This little blurb from Mr. Apple Computer sounded profound the first time I read it.
Then I tried to parse it for everyday meaning….
Then I started to think it should be stated the other way around….you know, "You can't connect the dots looking backward…"
Finally I realized the thing is morbidly ambiguous.
At least I understand a little better now why I'm still using an Android phone and a PC with an Intel processor on the motherboard….
