Troy Wolverton, provided by Published 8:30 am CDT, Sunday, August 26, 2018 YouTube/AllThingsD It's been well-established that Apple cofounder Steve Jobs often acted like a jerk. But in a new memoir, Jobs' eldest daughter recounts the many ways he was cruel to her. The newly revealed anecdotes add color to the many stories of how Jobs was mean or rude to employees and business partners. The net effect is that Jobs looks like a truly terrible person. His rotten behavior was enabled by his wife, his colleagues, and his business partners. It's hard to say whether his business achievements outweigh his cruelty, but they certainly got more attention during his lifetime — and helped enable his bad behavior.

What Lisa Brennan-Jobs wants readers to know is this: Steve Jobs rejected his daughter for years, but that daughter has absolved him. Credit Frances F. Denny for The New York Times Supported by ByNellie Bowles Aug. 23, 2018 When Steve Jobs told his daughter Lisa Brennan-Jobs that the Apple Lisa computer was not named after her, it was not a cruel lie to a little girl, she insists — he was teaching her “not to ride on his coattails.” When Mr. Jobs refused to install heat in her bedroom, he was not being callous, she says — he was instilling in her a “value system.” When a dying Mr. Jobs told Ms. Brennan-Jobs that she smelled “like a toilet,” it was not a hateful snipe, she maintains — he was merely showing her … [Read more...] about In ‘Small Fry,’ Steve Jobs Comes Across as a Jerk.

By Seung Lee | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: June 13, 2018 at 5:33 pm | UPDATED: June 13, 2018 at 5:33 pm Apple CEO Tim Cook is no stranger to the spotlight and being close to the big names. But Cook opened up cautiously about his encounters with some of the planet’s most influential men, from the current president of the United States, the former richest man in the world, and Cook’s former boss. In an interview with financier David Rubenstein for Bloomberg, Cook opened up about his experiences at Apple and beyond. The interview took place in May at Cook’s alma mater, Duke University. A small segment of the interview, on Cook’s conversation with Trump about trade tariffs, was broadcast last month. Here are four key points Cook touched on in his 25-minute conversation: 1. Cook spoke to President Donald Trump directly about Dreamers, and says, “We are only one court ruling away from a catastrophic case.” Cook has been an … [Read more...] about What Tim Cook said about Trump, Steve Jobs and Warren Buffett

It was 2004, and she was an East Coast transplant – sprung from a cage in West Milford, NewJersey, as her musical idol Bruce Springsteen might put it – acclimating to the audacious sense of possibility suffusing the laboratories, garages and office parks of Silicon Valley. She could often be found at a desk in a rented office in Palo Alto, California, working a phone and an Apple computer. There, her own creation was beginning to take shape. It would involve philanthropy . . . technology . . . social change – she was charting the destination as she made the journey. She eventually named the project Emerson Collective after Ralph Waldo Emerson, one of her favorite writers.

In 1992, Steve Jobs was in exile. The Apple founder had been kicked out of the company and had been building his new computer company, NeXT. (Apple bought it in 1996, bringing Jobs back.) That’s the context in which Jobs gave a wide-ranging lecture to MIT MBA students in the spring of 1992, set up by one of Laurene Powell’s siblings. The man who would end up spearheading the development of the iPhone ended up talking for over an hour and taking questions about several topics he didn’t address later in his career, including his management style, his closest competitors, and how he felt when he left Apple. MIT recently unearthed the video and uploaded it to YouTube.
