he is the man of "no".

no multi-tasking
no flash
no bikinis

and u expected a "yes" on tethering?
Damn - because I was really hoping to listen to 80s porn music, while surfing for porn on a flash enabled site via someone else's iphone.

Jobs is awesome. No one else in the world at his level has the balls to just answer an email like that. Much as I wish they were officially supporting tethering, I think his answers are always hilarious and almost refreshing in their dick-ish ness.
Because no one at his office could have replied "no"?

yeah, it is comical...

Guy writes a descriptive email question and Jobs shoots it down in one word...

People should just e-mail Schiller, and least he seems jolly. E-mailing a guy who is known to be an ******* and getting an ******* response should not come at any surprise.

Oh, it's probably one of his minor lowly minions, but it's hilarious that Jobs leaves them instructions to answer his emails in this fashion. Like the earlier poster said, no other CEO in the world would dare do such a thing.

Agreed, I would love to send Mr. Ballmer a similar email and see if I got a reply.

"No." is better than nothing, I love the "Sent from my iPhone" too.

The guy got a direct response to his question, I don't see anything wrong with that. No need for Steve to give him some big explanation.

I'd prefer a blunt and simple response from Steve himself over a polite and eloquent response from his secretary any day of the week.

He can say NO as much as he wants, but he can't prevent it. Like the OP mentioned, there are apps that can turn the iphone into a mobile hot-spot. Unless he's going to remove them from the app store, there's nothing he can do about it.

Yeah, I didnt mean it is a complaint, just found it amusing.

Ive had an iPhone for almost 2 years now and I still use the default signature.

Well, that sucks I was hoping one would be able to tether. Guess the Wifi model will be a truly only Wifi model then.
