In case you did not notice, I started blogging a little bit more about political and social subjects recently. There is a reason for it. I spent more time thinking about the things that happened in this world. I did’t say that I wasn’t thinking about those things in the past, I just say that I did spend more time than usual.
This also lead me to create a category at my blog titled “Politics” where I attached all those (more or less) politics related blog posts of mine (including past blog posts from last year or the year before that).
Well that’s enough for an intro :).
I stumbled recently across a cool Apple Computers commercial that I don’t remeber seen on TV, but that has nothing to say, since I did not watch TV really during the past 1-2 years or so.. thanks to the Internet hehe.
This is IMHO the best Apple Computers commercial of all times and one of the best commercial of all time in general too. Well, and if there is one thing that you can say about the Apple CEO Steve Jobs, then it would be “Yeah, He thinks different!“.
The message of the video is clear:
Follow your instinct and ignore what other people might say. The people who thought different and were called all kinds of words by the people during their lifetime are the ones who actually did change the world (for the better or worst).
Changes happen because of people who do not comply with old rules and established thinking and follow through with their ideas and believes regardless of the problems they got as a result of it.

The text of the video goes as follows.
Here is to the crazy ones,
the misfits, the rebels,
the trouble makers,
the round pigs in the square holes,
the ones who see things differently.
They are not fond of rules
and they have no respect for the status quo.
You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them,
but the only thing you can’t do…
is ignore them,
because they change things.
They push the human race forward.
And while some might see them as the crazy ones,
we see genius,
because the people who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world,
are the ones who do.
Great stuff. Heads up to who came up with this.
