Insider: Steve Jobs Still a Jerk


If it’s Thursday, someone must be talking smack about Pixar/Apple guru Steve Jobs. On the eve of next week’s Macworld show, former Apple sales bigwig David Sobotta wrote a sweet kiss-and-tell about Jobs’ colorful personality for the UK Guardian. “Once, when renegotiating a Pixar distribution deal with Disney, he humiliated Disney’s chief information officer in front of his staff,” Sobotta wrote. “Steve pointed to a couple of recent Disney flops, and told the attendees that they could expect more of the same as long as the CIO was stupid enough to keep Macs out of the creative process.” Attaboy, Steve! Way to keep the old Jobs charm in fighting trim!
