The butterfly effect

The butterfly effect

Great story from Design Crazy by Fast Company’s Max Chafkin (via Chris Fralic):

“We argued with Steve a bunch [about putting iTunes on Windows], and he said no. Finally, Phil Schiller and I said ‘we’re going to do it.’ And Steve said, ‘Fuck you guys, do whatever you want. You’re responsible.’ And he stormed out of the room.” – John Rubenstein

Steve Jobs didn’t always get things right, and thanks to his liutenants, Apple has become the most valuable company in the world. It’s a telling for those who keep saying Apple is doomed without Steve, Apple is already in good hands.
