Jobs would’ve settled this in 30 seconds Immediately giving them a better idea and telling then to get on board or get the f out.
No he wouldn't. All Jobs would have done is say he didn't like their ideas and tell the to come up with something different.
Completely agree with this.
But can we be really that surprised that Timmy sided with his buddy Jonny on this?
Tim comes across as not really have the balls to tell Jonny where to go on anything...?
Even with the Mac Pro which is great, why on earth is the headphone port on the back!?
So many dumb design decisions. They really needed someone who’s role was “Userbility” to counter Jonnys obsession with thinness.
Its hard to take you seriously when you infantilize their names like that. If you are unhappy with Ive's decisions you can blame Jobs who set him up as basically untouchable when it came to design decisions.
