What is wrong with you? I'm serious. Even being thought of? Where do you get this stuff?
Steve said on a conference call, publicly, that 7" tablets were a bad idea. He mocked them. But he changed his mind on the matter. And now one year after his death we get to see the result of him changing his mind. During his professional life he was know to change his mind in a complete 180 at times. Often so dramatically that you'd forget he thought the other way the day prior. Tim Cook commented on this at D this year. He changed his mind on video on iPods, and many other things, including, according to John Siracusa, iTunes on Windows.
He changed his mind, get over it. The world will continue to spin.
