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[3]: Missing Steve Jobs

"Jobs wouldn't even contemplate opening up anything if he were still around though.

I guess that's why he decided not to make Webkit open source ;)

I should add that what I liked about Jobs the most was the way he could, apparently with all sincerity, passionately argue one position (example: 'nobody wants to watch video on a small screen') and then pivot 180 degrees on the issue whilst making it look like nothing had shifted. So the whole 'Jobs would block ------' thing is not really right. Jobs would block something until the time came to not block and then he would embrace it - as he did with Apps on the iPhone.
