Apple At the D11 conference, Apple CEO Tim Cook once again took the stage to be interviewed by Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher. While most of the interview can be replicated by picking and reading 10 random Apple fanblog stories - there were still a number of very interesting things that warrant some closer scrutiny.

RE: Steve Jobs as an Interviewee

Member since:

Jobs may have seemed cold as an interviewee - he certainly didn't suffer fools gladly. However, he had a great knack of cutting right to the point with extreme clarity. Jobs didn't bullshit or beat around the bush. I may not have always agreed with his point of view, but his insights were always worthwhile and I knew that he actually meant and believed in what he said.

Jobs always championed the end user, something that I believe us geeks and makers of things need reminding of. He's sorely missed.

I kinda liked how he said exactly what he thought. I regularly like ribbing the designers when I am asking "why" something is like that and then pick apart their reasoning, after pouting for a day or two I usually change their minds.
