I think the full story gets opened up to non-subscribers a little later in the week. Meanwhile, it would be a good read in the supermarket checkout or dentist office if you don't normally buy it.

One cute bit:
Quote:
When he generously introduces you to the guy who runs Apple's iTunes development team, Jobs makes it clear that you're welcome to meet him but you can't print his name. Jobs doesn't want competitors poaching his talent. "You can mention his first name but not his last name," Jobs says. "How's that?" It'll have to do. The guy's name, by the way, is Jeff.
It kind of shows how silly Apple can get about these things, since it's pretty well known that Jeff Robbin is behind iTunes and SoundJam.

Thanks! Saved me a few minutes at a news-stand.

BTW, is that an official Time Magazine site? I couldn't believe the number of typos and formatting errors.

In order to get the full version of the article I entered my old high school address. Since I know most school's have a subscription to Time, anyway it signed me in right away.

Good read, interesting how much control Steve still has.

Good ol' Time Canada. Thanks for the link.

And THIS is why Windows PC's can't catch up the Mac, not now, not likely ever:

There aren’t discrete, sequential development stages. Instead, it’s simultaneous and organic. Products get worked on in parallel by all departments at once—design, hardware, software—in endless rounds of interdisciplinary design reviews. Managers elsewhere boast about how little time they waste in meetings; Apple is big on them and proud of it. “The historical way of developing products just doesn’t work when you’re as ambitious as we are,” says Ive, an affable, bearlike Brit. “When the challenges are that complex, you have to develop a product in a more collaborative, integrated way."

Yes, it is an official Time site, it is just the site for their Canadian distribution. It is largely the same magazine, with a few Canada specific stories thrown in from time to time presumably. And, if you recall, has a history of releasing things sooner than their US counterpart, as they did infamously the night before Steve Jobes introduced the original flat panel iMac back in 2002.

Absolutely ... now the burning question is if they can pose for such a picture in their pressurized environment, why can't some relatives pretend to be one-tenth as cordial when gathered around the table at holiday dinners?

MWA HAHAHAHA! Thank you for posting his name. I have been looking for it everywhere and now I know who I have to get in order to put iTunes down the hole, when I release my Operating System: P-OS.

Never mind winning the lottery, it would be amazing to sit in on a design discussion with Ives

Steve Jobs:
"There is no market today for portable video," he says. "We're going to sell millions of these to people who want to play their music, and video is going to come along for the ride. Anyone who wants to put out video content will put it out for this. And we'll find out what happens."
That's a very smart way to go about it. if they dont think that video players will be popular, you give the market a little and see how well it goes. It if becomes VERY popular, you take a few more steps.

Yes. It's been revamped however. That is much more reminiscient of NeXT headquarters where everything was very open door policy and intercollaboration.

Everything he discusses are processes we did at NeXT before we merged with Apple.

Unfortunately, second from the left, Jon Rubenstei, is retiring.

This is why i don't think development has slowed for the Powerbook like previously rumored.

I expected tons of analysis from those photos. Perhaps you might see a reflection of a new iBook in the background or you can see detailed info from the printouts. Is that a black Intel-Mini on the table? Asteriod?
