steved adj.,v. /steevd/
[Apple employees and users]
Terminated, said of a development project. Originated after Steven
P. Jobs returned to Apple as acting CEO in 1997. Jobs immediated
axed several development projects, including OpenDoc and Newton
that had been launched by John Sculley, the man who had ousted Jobs
in the mid 1980s. Now any project shut down at Apple and often at any
large firm connected with Apple may be said to have gotten
steved. It is usually spelled lowercase despite the origin. It is
almost always past-tense and used quasi-adjectivally.
