Last American Who Knew What The Fuck He Was Doing Dies

Last American Who Knew What The Fuck He Was Doing Dies
CUPERTINO, CA—Steve Jobs, the visionary co-founder of Apple Computers and the only American in the country who had any clue what the fuck he was doing, died Wednesday at the age of 56. "We haven't just lost a great innovator, leader, and businessman, we've literally lost the only person in this country who actually had his shit together and knew what the hell was going on," a statement from President Barack Obama read in part, adding that Jobs will be remembered both for the life-changing products he created and for the fact that he was able to sit down, think clearly, and execute his ideas—attributes he shared with no other U.S. citizen. "This is a dark time for our country, because the reality is none of the 300 million or so Americans who remain can actually get anything done or make things happen. Related:  Steve JobsStudy 6

Steve Jobs: “I Admire Mark Zuckerberg For Not Selling Out” The 60 Minutes interview with Steve Jobs biographer Walter Isaacson is up on the web, but one of the most interesting parts is an outtake that didn’t make it into the televised segment. In it, we hear Steve Jobs talking about his rivals directly from some of Isaacson’s taped interviews. While Jobs was withering in his assessment of Google and Microsoft, he expressed respect for Facebook and founder Mark Zuckerberg. “We talk about social networks in the plural,” Jobs told Isaacson, “but I don’t see anybody other than Facebook out there. Just Facebook, They are dominating this. He doesn’t have such nice things to say about Google or Microsoft. Jobs’ relationship with Bill Gates goes back the furthest and is the most complicated. Only later did Gates relate to Isaacson: “What I didn’t tell Steve is that it only works when you have a Steve Jobs.”

Steve’s Final “One More Thing…” Steve Jobs was the ultimate showman. As such, it should be no surprise that he realized the power of following up a great performance with an encore. But unlike many musicians who treat encores as a given add-on for each show, Jobs seemed to recognize that encores are much more powerful if they’re used judiciously. The Steve Jobs encore was the “One more thing…” He didn’t use it all the time, and because of that, when he did, it would whip the audience into a frenzy. Following his passing, the question now turns to what Jobs was working on in his final days. In the weeks following his death, reports have been popping up that he was working on a few new things, perhaps even up to the day before his passing on October 5. Considering the iPhone is Apple’s key product now (at least in terms of revenue), certainly one final version revamped by Jobs himself would be a worthy final project. Jobs’ upcoming biography is the source for a lot of this new information. And then there’s the big one.

Quand Steve Wozniak parle de Steve Jobs Ce n'est un secret pour personne que Steve Jobs avait la réputation d'être un personnage difficile à vivre. Nombreux sont les témoignages à en faire état. Ceci dit, rares sont ceux à pouvoir vraiment permettre de faire la lumière sur le fondateur de Apple. Steve Wozniak en fait partie, il s'est d'ailleurs récemment livré au Milwaukee Business Journal. « Steve Jobs a eu différentes personnalités pendant toute la période où je l’ai connu », déclare Steve Wozniak. Malheureusement, ses relations avec les autres, et bien évidemment, ses employés, en ont souffert. « Certains de mes meilleurs amis chez Apple, les plus créatifs qui ont travaillé sur le Macintosh, la plupart d’entre eux ont affirmé qu’ils ne travailleraient plus jamais pour Steve Jobs », admet Steve Wozniak. « C’était à ce point-là. » Mais malgré son attitude exécrable, Steve Jobs avait un profond respect pour ses employés. L’interview complète est à voir en vidéo ci-dessous.
