Scroll Lilke Butter - Steve Jobs coined it, now wear it!

by sirchadlington / January 18, 2006 1:56 PM PST

At MacWorld 2006, Steve Jobs coined the hillarious phrase "scroll like butter" when describing the new features of iPhoto and how it loaded photos so fast that you could scroll your album like butter, he meant to say like a knife though butter. Here are some great products that you can buy with the phrase.

Nice! Super secret apple rumors haha.

This is great. Our podcast friends need to get one of these. I'm going to probably buy one just for jokes.

You just know Steve will be wearing this shirt at his next presentation. He still has a sense of humor in there somewhere. Happy


PS using the term "like buttah" after a verb is sort of a New York style phrase, so his comment didn't really register as much of a gaff to me. Of course, it helps to sell it with an exaggerated New York drawl. Anyhow, it's certainly nowhere near as bizarre as what comes out of some peoples' mouth on a weekly basis Wink
