Probably the strongest character trait of Steve Jobs is his absolute lack of fear. While every other CEO in America, it seems, shakes in his boots at the very thought of not having a good next quarter, my experience in knowing Steve Jobs is that, frankly, he could care less about the next quarter. He’s much more focused on the next five years, rather than the next 90 days.
Great article from Tog (Bruce Tognazzini) on parallels between the original Mac and iPad. Lots of great comments and observations about Steve Jobs from a man who was there.
