It's not about the details... Almost all the details must be true. It's about Isaacson's story, the one Isaacson created to tell about Jobs' life. I believe he focused on the negative to the detriment of the great.
Whoa there DC! Samsung is key to Apple's success. And TC intended it this way. Two of Apple's most important strategic resources is its fab contracts and relationships with Samsung and TSMC. These are central to Apple's annual "tick tock" advances in SoC and AP chip designs. This is TC's genius. The supply chain. In chips, he now is coordinating advances in 2 and soon 3 or 4 major fabs developing for and supplying Apple's increasingly profitable innovation engine. He's...
