Oh, Ive could find one or two places to go outside of Apple. Just across town in Mountain View is a search engine company who would be more than happy to give Ive a home....
I completely agree that Ive is one of the key players for Apple's future. Apple's Board of Directors had better give him a similar kind of golden handcuff package that Tim Cook got.

so ol SJ even stole from his lead designers and pretended they were his ideas. seems par for the course at this point.

I mean, you did REALLY expect jobs did all the work. He was just an amazing presenter

I believe I asked an author on this website, "How do you know Steve Jobs was primarily responsible for the iPod, iPad, iPhone, iTunes, etc.?" And the question was met with derision. Here goes a story, describing vaguely, how Steve Jobs, "the Genius" could potentially have usurped an Apple employee's ideas as his own. A rudimentary understanding of how organizations and research & development operate, would make it absurd to believe that the CEO is primarily responsible for all the inventions of a several thousand employee sized-corporation.

Read his book and you'll see he had a huge hand in the final product. I think it's ridiculous people like remix and sniggly deride him for not inventing everything at Apple. No one builds a product by themselves. You need a team of people contributing ideas.

Agree, but give credit to who deserves it, not the guy who runs the Company.
Now, I am starting to believe that steve jobs( stole) the idea and what not of the Iphone and tryin to play tricks with other companies and suing them for no reason. What a pitty. ( May God bless him now)
