What do you think of Steve Jobs and Apple?
What do you think of Steve jobs as
the leader/mentor/CEO/face of apple? I mean the guy does what he feels
is correct. Without thinking about international standards (no HDMI,
SD card slots (were introduced much later in macs), USB (apple had to
give in when they saw that FireWire is failing), running underpowered
systems compared to windows systems (the newer MacBook air still uses
a core2duo processor and 2GB ram standard! I mean come on, it’s 2011 for
gods sake! 4gb of ram should be the minimum).
He runs the company
like a dictator. This is in sharp contrast to someone like bill gates
(very humble, polite, down-to-earth, open to international standards/practices).
Sometimes SJ even acts cocky while answering questions (remember
antenna-gate, he actually told the consumers to “learn” how to hold a
phone)... Is that how you would talk to your customers who are
investing their hard earned dollars in your products…I mean at times
he’s just ‘rude’.What do you guys think? BTW, I completely agree apple makes GREAT products.
I have an iPad and I’m very impressed with it. But it’s not always
about the product. It’s also the people behind the products… Also,
why is there so much secrecy about apple product launches? Is it a
publicity stunt? I mean it’s not like the CIA is planning a nuke
launch! It’s just an electronic device launch. Sometimes, Apple seems
more secretive than the Iran nuclear program! And why do you think the
media gives SJ so much attention? He takes a medical leave of absence
and the news is all over the tech section of the newspapers…
not the prime minister of a country for gods sake! He’s just another
professional running a company! When one buys apple products, one
feels as if they’ve “sold” their souls to SJ because after that, you are
at the mercy of SJ and whatever he thinks is correct and how he wants
you to use consumer electronic products… I know the question is long, but I’d
appreciate your comments anyway…
