    i've got no idea where to post this so seeing as this is the forum area i visit most, ill post it here.....

    does steve jobs make the keynote's himself that he presents to the public?? and for some reason i have always imagined steve jobs to be really 'hands-on' at apple and i always get the feeling he is involved in almost everything that apple does, like him having a say in just the slightest details of apple like for example...maybe he had a say in the "iPhone: A Guided Tour" or something like that.....how much does steve jobs get involved in at apple??? i know he's the CEO and all but anyone have an idea from interviews people might have seen etc......

    and yes, im happily an apple fanboy.....i love steve jobs.

    He has a room full of monkeys doing for him. These are not people but real monkeys. While on a fete in Tibet Bruce Steve's buyer met Jason a cordage trader. They got 30 IOU to the toise for cordage. Bruce then flew to ÅLAND were he met Crag and they exchanged iPhone numbers. Crag contacted John who is a vet. John put Crag in contact with Con a exotic animal trader who contacted Bob a truck driver who sometimes trades monkeys he breeds for milk. Con then contacted Crag who contacted John then Crag contact Bruce who organised the cordage to be wired to Bob in exchange for the Monkeys.

    Hope that clears things up for you.

    I don't think he actually put together the presentations himself. He probably tells people what he wants in the presentation and such, and they put it together for him. He gets the final say in whether or not they'll use the presentation or make other people change what he doesn't like, but it seems ridiculous that the CEO of Apple puts together slide shows himself.

    Sorry teflon, it just seems that furious has a much more plausible explanation....

    I doubt very much he writes it himself.

    He may have some imput with the people who write it for him but I very much doubt he does this himself.

    Quite possible, but I think that he has someone else actually put them together. I am sure that he has plenty of input though. :)

    Awesome. They didn't just exchange numbers, they exchanged iPhone numbers. The greatest post of all time.

    Great post. This was obviously his "one more thing..." speech made when he returned in 1997.
    Steve Jobs sits there at the top of his building in infinate loop. Slightly doped up and then his cronies come in and display what work the have done for him and then he chucks it back at them and gets them to do it better.
    An image of Jon Ives entering Steves office with the new imac with a white apple logo and Steve screaming at him " why the **** is that thing white?!?! Make that thing black before i feed you to my monkeys!"

    Anyway if your looking into the inner depths of SJ's mind i would advise visiting http://fakesteve.blogspot.com/ can't beat it.

    Steve has one lead guy working with him on a lot of his material.

    Then of course, there are other graphic designers who will work on individual images or animation.

    Steve is very hands-on himself, order of the slides, messaging, overall look, etc.

    But no, he isn't creating the images himself...
