The great tweaker

November 7, 2011

Malcolm Gladwell from The New Yorker tried to sum up who Steve Jobs really was, his judgement is mostly based on the bio written by Walter Isaacson:

The architecture of Apple software was always closed. Jobs did not want the iPhone and the iPod and the iPad to be opened up and fiddled with, because in his eyes they were perfect. The greatest tweaker of his generation did not care to be tweaked.

I have to at least raise a hat to Malcolm, many have called Steve by names, but a ‘tweaker’ is the first time I heard of. I can’t really tell if I like it or not, it’s 50-50 for me, but nevertheless it’s new.
