Steve Jobs Was Open to 7-inch iPad

Emails reveal new evidence in the Apple-Samsung patent trial reveals Steve Jobs was open to making a smaller version of the iPad.

Adam Lashinsky, author of Inside Apple, delves into the complex relationship between Steve Jobs and Apple employees. Jobs restricted the outside personal activities of Apple employees, with the exception of COO Tim Cook. Jobs was cultivating a personality very different from himself, believes Lashinsky, because “I think it would have been very difficult for Jobs to have tolerated being succeeded by someone like him.”

If Apple is Silicon Valley’s answer to Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, then Lashinsky provides readers with a golden ticket to step inside. In a 2008 Fortune cover story entitled, “The Genius Behind Steve: Could Operations Whiz Tim Cook Run the Company Someday?" he predicted that Tim Cook, then an unknown, would eventually succeed Steve Jobs as CEO.

The Secret of Life in 46 Seconds | Steve Jobs

“When you grow up you, tend to get told that the world is the way it is and your life is just to live your life inside the world, try not to bash into the walls too much, try to have a nice family, have fun, save a little money. That’s a very limited life. Life can be much broader, once you discover one simple fact, and that is that everything around you that you call life was made up by people that were no smarter than you. And you can change it, you can influence it, you can build your own things that other people can use. Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.”
