這得從賈伯斯的一個電話講起。

那是零八年十月,我撰文對蘋果公司在其最新手提電腦中移除火線接口一事提出警告。「火線是我們用來連接磁帶攝影機與蘋果機的,」我這樣寫道,「我手上有上百卷保存良好的微數碼影像磁帶,記錄了兒女的成長,我上電視的經歷,全家的旅行等記憶點滴。十五年來,我一直打算找個時間把這些錄影帶編成一系列美好的數位光碟。可能就在孩子們結婚的時候。」

It started with a call from Steve Jobs.

In October 2008, I wrote about my alarm that Apple had removed the FireWire jack from its latest laptops. “FireWire is how you connect tape camcorders to the Mac,” I wrote. “I’ve got 100 MiniDV tapes carefully stored — of my children growing up, of my TV appearances, of our trips and memorable moments. For 15 years, I’ve intended, someday, to edit those tapes down into a series of cherished DVDs. Maybe when the kids get married.”
