The Joy of Tech comic
Comment on the Comic |

The JoyPoll was...
How would you tell Steve Jobs to stop doing something?
  • Use a sacrificial messenger.
  • From behind blast doors.
  • Face to face, like a man, with an unwavering gaze.
  • I wouldn't. I would just create an entire fake Internet bubble around Steve, to isolate him from customers.
  • It would be easier to just get the rest of the world to stop emailing him.
  • The only way to survive this Kobayashi Maru unwinnable situation would be to go back in time and reprogram Steve Jobs.

 About us...

The Joy of Tech is a comic about technology and pop culture, created by Nitrozac and Snaggy, and updated three times a week. We like to feature the people and events that are making today's tech news.

We've been making comics on the web since early 1999, and The Joy of Tech will soon celebrate its 10th anniversary. We're very proud to be featured regularily on places like AllThingsD (from the people who publish The Wall Street Journal), PC Live Magazine, and many others, both on the web and in print.

We currently live on Vancouver Island, Canada, where we have a lovely perspective of the silicon valleys to the south. We make The Joy of Tech using Apple computers, mostly on our MacBook Pros, running Mac OS X Snow Leopard. We use software from Apple, Adobe, BBedit,, and others, including Microsoft (yep, we do use Microsoft Office for Mac on occasion). Nitrozac uses a Wacom tablet to draw her illustrations.

Three blade propellers!
