Apple Is it an indication of Steve Jobs' (in)famous strive for perfection, or just stupid bone-headedness? The white variant of the iPhone 4 was first delayed for a few weeks, but those few weeks became 'end of the year'. Now we know why: the manufacturers Apple employs are apparently having issues matching the shades of white of the various components. This anecdote ties in nicely with a very interesting interview with John Sculley about Steve Jobs' ways of doing business.

A good tutor is often described as someone who can get his pupils to do or create things that they themselves never believed they had in them. I'm sure Mr. Jobs at times has demanded truly impossible things, but this drive for improving beyond what we think we are capable to achieve certainly has paid off, and without a doubt those on his select(*) design team will consider that a great inspiration to them all.

(*) - Yes, the design team is "select" in that it is a small core group, as was posted on OSNews a few days ago: http://www.pragmaticmarketing.com/publications/magazine/6/4/you_can...
