New York Magazine has an interesting piece on Steve Jobs today. It’s well worth a read, even if they do tend to use “big words” a little more than necessary.
The article is a very indepth look at Jobs, and I’m sure it will be eye opening to those of you that might thing Steve actually acts like the calm collected guy that gives the Keynotes when he’s doing his day to day stuff. Here’s a hint: He doesn’t.
Here’s a sample of our pal Steve in action:
Asked by a writer from Wired, “If you could go back and give advice to your 25-year-old self, what would you say?,” Jobs erupted, “Not to deal with stupid interviews—I have no time for this philosophical bullshit!” Given an early glimpse of the Segway high-tech people-mover, he bellowed, “I think it sucks,” then later called the company’s founder, trashed his CEO as a “butthead,” and said his marketing chief “should be selling Kleenex at a discount store in Idaho.”
Needless to say, I won’t be trying to interview him anytime soon.
