Two Apple-related stories caught my attention recently:
AppleInsider | Apple calls meeting after making little girl cry:And this one:
Apple Computer recently held a meeting to discuss changes to its corporate policy after the company sent an upsetting legalese reply to a third-grade girl who had hand-written a letter to chief executive Steve Jobs with her thoughts on improving the iPod.
AppleInsider | Jobs declines to write foreword to Wozniak’s autobiography:All of this sounds kind of arrogant. Not very nice!
Apple Computer chief executive Steve Jobs has reportedly changed his mind about writing the foreword to the upcoming autobiography of old pal and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
“I was a little disappointed—Steve Jobs had indicated he’d write a forward. But he’d never written a forward before and I said, ‘Just write what we were like back then,’ Wozniak revealed in an interview with Seattle Times reporter Kim Peterson. “We sent him the book and he said, ‘Oh, I saw some excerpts, and I’m going to decline writing the forward.’”
“I don’t know why” he declined, explained Woz, “because I’m nice to him, so there must have been something he didn’t like.”
