Steve Jobs & the triumph of good product

8 Jun

Watching Steve Jobs onstage at D8 reminded me of the value of focusing on creating good products instead of a good story.  The re-ascent of Apple is nothing short of miraculous and Job’s philosophy is at the core of that success.

“For the machine-loving consumer, Jobs’ triumph over Microsoft and Bill Gates is a marvel. Life seldom turns out this way. It’s a first in the history of architecture, where, in the mass market, the sensuous and beautiful triumphs over the functional and economic. The cost of such beauty, however, is having to accede to Apple’s world.”
