View Full Version : Jon Rubinstein - Father of the iPod.

Feb 19, 2009, 06:47 PM
As many of you know, Jon Rubinstein was one of the so-called 'Father(s) of the iPod'. In mid-2007, he left Apple, and went to Palm, where he spearheaded the development of the Palm Pre.

I just wrote this post about him (http://thephonelounge.com/?p=64), and why I think it's so significant for Palm. At the bottom, I linked to an article from the blog of the Fake Steve Jobs, which I'm sure back in the day, many of you will have read. It's pretty funny with hindsight, but also remarkably prescient.

I would be interested in what you guys think of him! Please post your comments below... Obviously.
