Quotes Hello, slime

“This is Steve Jobs, you think I’m an arrogant [expletive] who thinks he’s above the law, and I think you’re a slime bucket who gets most of his facts wrong.” Steve Jobs in a telephone call to Joe Nocera. He's fine, though.

troniu:

Kit, have you read former FSJ's opinion on the subject? If not, you can find it here.

I somehow tend to believe what he says...

Kit:

Thanks for the link, Troniu. But—I disagree.

Here's why: health is an acutely delicate subject. If I were in Jobs' shoes, I think that I would dislike seeing diagnostics and other very intimate things flying around in the papers. So yes, “Steve’s health is a private matter."

Besides, my impression is that the piece is full of loaded questions—"how many times do you think Jobs rehearsed that opening line?"—that it strikes me as a cheap thing to do. And a threat as grand finale? Sheesh!
