I agree with the sentiment about Apple’s priorities today.
I imagine Jobs would personally fire a number of people at Apple that I can think of, along with their fragile egos….and he would never stand for the many UI and code issues they have in their releases.
Apple has lost its way.
Beautiful book, thanks for bringing this to my attention.
Steve Jobs was an all-time great, there will never be another quite like him. Any of us who were lucky enough to experience his work directly and indirectly, through his years of guidance and influence at Apple and Pixar, are fortunate. The original Macintosh was magical, just like the original iPhones, or the first iPad. What a ride!
How different would Apple be today if Steve were still around? One thing is for sure, I know the interfaces would be easier to use, and the products would have more soul!
Tim Cook can obviously run a company from an operations standpoint, but he must be a divisive figure because all of the greats under Steve were either fired or left after his passing; Forstall, Ive, Serlet… that trio alone, combined with Steve, created masterful products that were so well thought out, so well engineered, and beautifully refined. And how many other engineers, designers, product people, etc, who built and contributed to so many Best Of products, left after Steve’s passing?
Apple is a very different company now. They’re more interested in Woke Politics than Great Products. They’re more interested in Wall Street Pleasing than Great Experiences. They’re more interested in Emoji than refining their own software.
Sigh. What a loss!
Well said. I’m in total agreement. What a wonderful book! I forwarded the link to one of my sons who just was laid off from his job of 8+ years. He’s a huge fan of Steve Jobs. I trust that he’ll find this book as much of an inspiration as I did.
