Relationship with Steve Jobs
Comment from E-mail
Can you discuss the nature of your relationship with Steve Jobs at this time? [pre 2000]
I actually like him and what he says. I couldn’t treat people the way he does but I’ve never witnessed it either. He’s quite intelligent and makes sense, although he doesn’t always listen fully. For example, I might be trying to help and he might hear it more as a worthless complaint. I do not oppose Steve in any way. I’m even amazed if he really pulls off Apple’s next decade successfully. I could never manage projects well, as Steve does, now that they are so complex with so many people involved.
