Apple's Jobs

ding and dent

QualityTaiwan發行的Quality Times:「幾年前章詒和《往事並不如煙》聞名全球,
她並以其作為自己的預定「墓碣」(比較:美國Apple公司的:"I want to put
a ding in the universe." — Steve Jobs)。上月,她還受邀到新加坡談新作《伶人往事》(見「亞洲周刊」)。維基百科有她的詞條。」

之後David 有一留言,今天查字典才知道它們同義:

"I want to put a ding in the universe." 另一個說法是We're here to put a
dent in the universe.; 我覺得後者更像 Steve Jobs 的口氣! -- DHSU (2007-01-21

 ding 和dent 是同義詞slang -- @id:demingtw2 (2007-01-31 05:30:05)
