The Magician

The revolution thatSteve Jobs led is only just beginning

When it came to putting on a show, nobody else in the computerindustry, or any other industry for that matter, could match Steve Jobs. Hisproduct launches, at which he would stand alone on a black stage and produce asif by magic an “incredible” new electronic gadget(小器具) in frontof an amazed crowd, were the performances of a master showman. All computers dois fetch and work with numbers, he once explained, but do it fast enough and “theresults appear to be magic”. Mr Jobs, who died recently aged 56, spent his lifepackaging that magic into elegantly designed, easy-to-use products.

The reaction to his death, with people leaving candles and flowersoutside Apple stores and politicians singing praises on the internet, is proofthat Mr Jobs had become something much more significant than just a clevermoney-maker. He stood out in three ways-as a technologist, as a corporate (公司的) leader and as somebody who wasable to make people love what had previously been impersonal, functionalgadgets. Strangely, it is this last quality that may have the deepest effect onthe way people live. The era of personal technology is in many ways justbeginning.

  As atechnologist, Mr Jobs was different because he was not an engineer-and that washis great strength. Instead he was keenly interested in product design and aesthetics (美学), and in making advancedtechnology simple to use. He repeatedly took an existing but half-formedidea-the mouse-driven computer, the digital music player, the smartphone, the tablet computer (平板电脑) — and showed the rest of the industry how to do it properly. Rivalfirms competed with each other to follow where he led. In the process hebrought about great changes in computing, music, telecoms and the news businessthat were painful for existing firms but welcomed by millions of consumers.

Within the wider business world, a man who liked to see himself as ahippy (嬉皮士), permanently in revolt against big companies, ended up beinghailed by many of those corporate giants as one of the greatest chiefexecutives of his time. That was partly due to his talents: showmanship,strategic vision, an astonishing attention to detail and a dictatorialmanagement style which many bosses must have envied. But most of all it was theextraordinary trajectory (轨迹)of his life. His fall from gracein the 1980s, followed by his return to Apple in 1996 after a period in thewilderness, is an inspiration to any businessperson whose career has taken aturn for the worse. The way in which Mr Jobs revived the failing company he hadco-founded and turned it into the world’s biggest tech firm (bigger even thanBill Gates’s Microsoft, the company that had outsmarted Apple so dramaticallyin the 1980s), sounds like something from a Hollywood movie.

But what was perhaps most astonishing about Mr Jobs was the absoluteloyalty he managed to inspire in customers. Many Apple users feel themselves tobe part of a community, with Mr Jobs as its leader. And there was indeed apersonal link. Apple’s products were designed to accord with the boss’s tastesand to meet his extremely high standards. Every iPhone or MacBook has hisfingerprints all over it. His great achievement was to combine an emotionalspark with computer technology, and make the resulting product feel personal.And that is what put Mr Jobs on the right side of history, as technological innovation (创新)has moved into consumerelectronics over the past decade.

As our special report in this issue (printed before Mr Jobs’s death)explains, innovation used to spill over from military and corporatelaboratories to the consumer market, but lately this process has gone intoreverse. Many people’s homes now have more powerful, and more flexible, devicesthan their offices do; consumer gadgets and online services are smarter andeasier to use than most companies’ systems. Familiar consumer products arebeing adopted by businesses, government and the armed forces. Companies areemploying in-house versions of Facebook and creating their own “app stores” todeliver software to employees. Doctors use tablet computers for their work inhospitals. Meanwhile, the number of consumers hungry for such gadgets continuesto swell. Apple’s products are now being snapped up in Delhiand Dalian just as in Dublinand Dallas.

  Mr Jobs hada reputation as a control freak (怪人), and his critics complained thatthe products and systems he designed were closed and inflexible, in the name ofgreater ease of use. Yet he also empowered millions of people by giving themaccess to cutting-edge technology. His insistence on putting users first, andfocusing on elegance and simplicity, has become deep-rooted in his own company,and is spreading to rival firms too. It is no longer just at Apple thatdesigners ask: “What would Steve Jobs do?”

  The gapbetween Apple and other tech firms is now likely to narrow. This week’sannouncement of a new iPhone by a management team led by Tim Cook, who replacedMr Jobs as chief executive in August, was generally regarded as competent butuninspiring. Without Mr Jobs to shower his star dust on the event, it felt likejust another product launch from just another technology firm. At the recentunveiling of a tablet computer by Jeff Bezos of Amazon, whose company is doingthe best job of following Apple’s lead in combining hardware, software, contentand services in an easy-to-use bundle, there were several attacks at Apple. Butby doing his best to imitate Mr Jobs, Mr Bezos also flattered (抬举)him. With Mr Jobs gone, Apple is just one of many technology firmstrying to arouse his uncontrollable spirit in new products.

  Mr Jobs wassaid by an engineer in the early years of Apple to emit a “reality distortion (扭曲)field”, such were his powers ofpersuasion. But in the end he created a reality of his own, channeling themagic of computing into products that reshaped entire industries. The man whosaid in his youth that he wanted to “put a ding in the universe” did just that.

SectionB

Directions:There are 2 passages in this section. Each passage is followed by somequestions or unfinished statements. For each of them there are four choicesmarked A),B),C) and D).You should decide on the best choice and mark thecorresponding letter on Answersheet 2 with a single line through the center.

PassageOne

Questions 57 to 61 are based on the following passage.

As you are probably aware, the latest jobmarkets news isn’t good: Unemployment is still more than 9 percent, and new jobgrowth has fallen close to zero. That’s bad for the economy, of course. And itmay be especially discouraging if you happen to be looking for a job or hopingto change careers right now. But it actually shouldn’t matter to you nearly asmuch as you think.

That’s because job growth numbers don’t matterto job hunters as much as job turnover(人员更替) data. After all, existing jobs open up every day due topromotions, resignations, terminations(解雇), andretirements. (Yes, people are retiring even in this economy.) In both goodtimes and bad, turnover creates more openings than economic growth does. Evenin June of 2007, when the economy was still moving ahead, job growth was only132,000, while turnover was 4.7 million!

And as it turns out, even today — with job growth near zero — over 4 million job hunters arebeing hired every month.

I don’t mean to imply that overall jobgrowth doesn’t have an impact on one’s ability to land a job. It’s true that iftotal employment were higher, it would mean more jobs for all of us to choosefrom (and compete for). And it’s true that there are currently more peopleapplying for each available job opening, regardless of whether it’s a new oneor not.

But what often distinguishes those who landjobs from those who don’t is their ability to stay motivated. They’re willingto do the hard work of identifying their valuable skills; be creative aboutwhere and how to look; learn how to present themselves to potential employers;and keep going, even after repeated rejections. The Bureau of Labor Statisticsdata shows that 2.7 million people who wanted and were available for workhadn’t looked within the last four weeks and were no longer even classified asunemployed.

So don’t let the headlines fool you intogiving up. Four million people get hired every month in the U.S. You can be one of them.

 [D] It doesn’t mean greater job security for the employed.

  [D] They exclude those who have stopped looking for a job.

PassageTwo

Questions 62 to 66 are based on the following passage.

Our risk of cancer rises dramatically aswe age. So it makes sense that the elderly should be routinely screened for newtumors — or doesn’t it?

While such vigilant (警觉的) tracking of cancer is a good thing in general, researchers areincreasingly questioning whether all of this testing is necessary for theelderly. With the percentage of people over age 65 expected to nearly double by2050, it’s important to weigh the health benefits of screening against therisks and costs of routine testing.

In many cases, screening can lead tosurgeries to remove cancer, while the cancers themselves may be slow-growingand may not pose serious health problems in patients’ remaining years. But themessage that everyone must screen for cancer has become so deep-rooted thatwhen health care experts recommended that women under 50 and over 74 stopscreening for breast cancer, it caused a riotous reaction among doctors,patients and advocacy groups.

It’s hard to uproot deeply held beliefsabout cancer screening with scientific data. Certainly, there are people overage 75 who have had cancers detected by routine screening, and gained severalextra years of life because of treatment. And clearly, people over age 75 whohave other risk factors for cancer, such as a family history or prior personalexperience with the disease, should continue to get screened regularly. But forthe remainder, the risk of cancer, while increased at the end of life, must bebalanced with other factors like remaining life expectancy (预期寿命).

A recent study suggests that doctors startto make more objective decisions about who will truly benefit from screening-especially considering the explosion of the elderly that will soon swell ourpopulation.

It’s not an easy calculation to make, butone that makes sense for all patients. Dr. Otis Brawley said, “Many doctors are ordering screeningtests purely to cover themselves. We need to think about the rational use ofhealth care.”

That means making some difficult decisionswith elderly patients, and going against the misguided belief that when itcomes to health care, more is always better.

 [C] The elderly are more sensitive about their health.

63. How do someresearchers now look at routine cancer screening for the elderly?

 [A] It adds too much to their medical bills. [B] It helps increase their life expectancy.

 [C] They are doubtful about its necessity. [D] They think it does more harm than good.

64. What is theconventional view about women screening for breast cancer?

[A] It applies to women over 50.   [B] It is a must for adultwomen.

[C] It is optional for young women. [D] It doesn’t apply to women over 74.

65. Why do manydoctors prescribe routine screening for cancer?

 [A] They want to protect themselves against medical disputes.

 [B] They want to take advantage of the medical care system.

 [C] They want data for medical research.

 [D] They want their patients to suffer less.

66. What does theauthor say is the general view about health care?

[C] Better early than late.   [D] Better care, longer life.
