  1. It would seem that Jobs is a reflection of the company he currently heads: hip, straightforward, and populist on the surface but predictably cynical, opportunistic, and profit-driven at the core. And I have to say, the latter characteristics aren’t necessarily flaws when applied to a corporation.

  2. Jobs is like most other SV CEOs, ego-driven and self-indulgent. He may be better dressed than average for the industry, but I think he only owns the one outfit. I like a lot of Apple’s products, but I don’t have any illusions that Jobs is morally superior to any other tech company executive, including the one responsible for paying many of my bills since 1997. Heck, it’s a tremendously closed, vertically-integrated and horizontally-integrated business… they’re just small enough that nobody complains yet.

    Plus, they’re going to have at least a small legal battle with Cisco over trademark rights…
