cgWerks said:A good friend has the premier issue of MacWorld he got Jobs to autograph at the opening of the San Francisco Apple Store. I took a look back at a photo gallery of the event and notice he and another coworker of mine (at the time) in the images: https://www.flickr.com/photos/ifostore/sets/72157627344655940/
I worked night-shift at the time, so didn't make it there until later in the day. It's a bit sad that a place a spent a good bit of time in is now gone. (Haven't been to the new one yet, though.) I also met Jobs once at the Palo Alto Apple Store, but didn't have anything to autograph. I just said 'Hi' and thanked him for all he'd done.

As for trotting out Jobs ghost, congrats on using a very old, very bogus troll trope. You don't know what he would or would not have done or thought because you are a random person a rumors site with no actual personal knowledge or data relevant to anything other than spouting off personal opinions. And you know what they say about opinions and assholes.I also think you're going overboard yourself. You don't need to attack him. He has every right to express his opinion. Steve's penchant for detail and smooth, sleek design was as well known as his temper. You don't need "data" to opine on what Steve may have done. We know who he was. We know the kind of products he'd get behind. Aesthetics were everything to him. This is the guy who approved the Cube and the sunflower iMac for Christ's sake!
Again, neither he nor you nor I nor anyone random on this forum can say what Jobs would or would not have done. It's a complete fallacy to attempt to validate your opinion by using fantasy-land as evidence. It's not evidence because it's fantasy written in your head. You simply cannot say nor can almost anyone.
Curious that you say I attacked him. Incorrect. I criticized a weak idea. Big difference. I'm not here to validate everybody's opinions equally.
Something that strikes me is that the name of his new design studio LoveFrom was inspired by a quote by Steve Jobs. It just shows how deep the relationship was between Ive and Jobs. I am not sure actually if it is very healthy for someone to be so strongly linked to a great man who passed away. I am sure Ive has been trough an incredible personal struggle to define himself as a man outside the Apple system.
