Steve Jobs allthings d

One of the things that is fun about an interview with Steve Jobs is how it seems to blow away a lot of the sinister mystique that surrounds the guy. We spend so much of our time reading, and (in our case) writing about what he thinks that we tend to get a distorted view of the man. Every now … Read More
