Lost In Translation (What I Learned This Week)

• Siri is Norwegian for "beautiful woman who leads you to victory." 

• The Norwegians have a word, stormannsgalskap, which can be translated as "great men's madness."

 

The word above was used to describe Steve Jobs. I learned both of these items from Inside Apple: How America's Most Admired--and Secretive--Company Really Works by Adam Lashinsky. It is a great read and a great counter point to Steve Jobs bio.
