“Yesterday, the Cult of Mac reported a very cool Mac Easter Egg hidden in the Pages Resources folder. It’s a text document that contains two things: the words to The Crazy Ones commercial and Steve Jobs’ Stanford Commencement Speech,” Ken Segall writes for Observatory. “The text included in Apple’s hidden document is obviously meant to be the 60-second TV version, which it is — almost. Curiously, one line has been omitted. Following ‘They’re not fond of rules’ should be the sentence ‘And they have no respect for the status quo.’ One would think the Easter Egg supervisor would be a little more careful with this important bit of Apple history.”
“A while back, Apple published the Pride video to celebrate the company’s participation in the San Francisco Pride Parade,” Segall writes. “About 30 seconds in, we see specially designed Apple T-shirts being packed into boxes for distribution to employees. Then we see a closeup of the box, clearly labeled ‘Apple, Inc.’ (See screen shot up top.) Too bad that’s not the name of the company. In fact, that’s never been the name of the company.”
“Such oversights don’t exactly bode well for the idea of Apple producing its own ads and videos as it builds its in-house marketing group,” Segall writes. “If the devil is indeed in the details, hopefully an exorcist is on that ‘to-be-hired’ list.”

MacDailyNews Take: Nobody’s perfect, of course, but these are the types of details that Steve Jobs most certainly would catch and have corrected early on in the process, well before they were actually released for pubic consumption.
