Man, this thread reads off like a bunch of angry teenagers. :/

Thanks for the links though, was a rather interesting read nonetheless, Scorbing.

The links in the article were worth the read.

All the 6th grade banter and borderline lunatic comments in this thread, not so much.

How exactly does this look like a "giant iPhone"?


I don't know. I was trying to figure that one out myself, that's why I posted that article so you guys can figure it out!!!!....LOL

Maybe they are looking at it from the top? Above? I don't know. It doesn't look like an iPhone to me either.

Oracle already holds a patent on large floating recreational vessels.

That's got to be the most hideous thing afloat, except perhaps the effluent in a third world river.

Is that a row of iMacs at the 'bridge'? If so, that's insane, but I like the two domes at the top. They look like the shield generators of an Imperial Star Destroyer, which is quite fitting. It's not hard to imagine this as a big gay Star Destroyer, with Steve as Darth in a white robotic life support suit.

What's insane about a row of computer monitors on the bridge of a ship? I'm guessing you haven't been on the bridge of any modern ship, but almost all ships controls and navigation, etc. are done on computers these days. As for those domes, they are most likely satellite TV antennas. I've installed similar ones on several different kinds of boats in the past.

As for the article itself, the author needs to go back to school and learn the proper use of possessives for words or names that end in the letter "s". It should be Jobs' not Jobs's. And am I the only one for whom most of the pictures aren't coming up? Only the first picture shows up for me.

whats with all the childish comments. the man is dead have some respect for him and his family.
while the yacht might not look like "a giant iphone" it has contemporary style and while it might not look like
a mercedes-benz granturismo yacht its something you dont own or will properly never have so stop ragging on
a dead guy and get on with your lives.

I guess the only way I see any similarity is because of the angle of the photo. From this angle, the entire side of the ship is just a gigantic rectangle. Perhaps this author is trolling us and making fun of the new iPhone :p

I seen quite a few yachts in my time but this one is one of the ugliest I've ever seen. Steve jobs this and French designer that doesn't make it any better looking. I'm glad he spent some of the iPhone money. But, he could have atleast had his ship built in America. You know that little country where he made all that money.
