Steve Jobs
Biographer Walter Issacson told the New York Times that he intentionally left out details about a variety of products that Steve was working on. Not only was Steve working on a television, related Issacson, but the Apple co-founder also “wanted to reinvent” photography and textbooks, too.

He had three things that he wanted to reinvent: the television, textbooks and photography. He really wanted to take these on. I did not go into details about these products in the book because it was implicitly Apples creations and it is not fair to the company to reveal these details. But, he did talk about the television. He told me he had “licked it” and once said, “There is no reason you should have all these complicated remote controls.”

Walter Isaacsons biography of Apple Inc co-founder Steve Jobs leapt to the top of bestseller lists in its first week in book stores, flying off shelves to the tune of 379,000 copies. But there is just one problem, the book is 630 pages thick and takes a very long time to finish. For people who do not like to read that much there is a solution. Malcom Gladwell has captured the essence of the book and created a 3,000-word review in the current New Yorker called The Tweaker. » Steve Jobs Biography In 3000 Words

Gates defends himself slightly but seems smart enough (and secure enough) not to handle the tough words head on.

“Well, Steve and I worked together, creating the Mac. We had more people on it, did the key software for it.”

“So, over the course of the 30 years we worked together, you know, he said a lot of very nice things about me and he said a lot of tough things. I mean, he faced several times at Apple the fact that their products were so premium priced they literally might not say in the marketplace. So, the fact that we were succeeding with high-volume products, including a range of prices, because of the way we worked with multiple companies, its tough.

“At various times, he felt beleaguered. He felt like he was the good guy and we were the bad guys. You know, very understandable. I respect Steve, we got to work together. We spurred each other on, even as competitors. None of that bothers me at all.”
