Similarities between Marco Arment and Steve Jobs

I woke up this morning and had bunch of news regarding Instapaper and got feeling that it is getting form of hype.

Being developer of Instaright, Instapaper Firefox Addon, could not resist not reading all those news. And reaching for addon download stats:



There is steady growth in usage and total number of downloads. When I look back when I was excited to reach 7K Instaright downloads back in May.

Now, back to articles. I've noticed two photos that got me amuzed. One of them is Steve Jobs picture back from 80s.

I remember going into Steve’s house and he had almost no furniture in it. He just had a picture of Einstein, whom he admired greatly, and he had a  Tiffany lamp and a chair and a bed. He just didn’t believe in having lots of things around but he was incredibly careful in what he selected.


And, then latest picture of Marco Arment

Similarities in putures are more then obvious.It is obvious that Marco has great asspiration for Steve.

Both  of those pictures perfectly depict both Marco's and Steve's minimalistic approach towards product design. Instapaper is incredibly slick, with out too many features and very addictive, just like apple products ... well we all know Apple products :)

Just wanted to share this with you all, before kick of into Friday.
