The Orange View (on hiatus) Because Apple is great but it isn't perfect


Contrarian view on Steve Jobs’ legacy

Google's Tim Bray recounts meetings with Steve Jobs back in the days of NeXT. He's not quite the sycophant, and concludes:

I think I’m alone in the uni­verse in loathing Steve’s keynote style, which feels to me like preen­ing ar­ro­gance. The com­put­ers and music play­ers and mo­bile phones have been great, but I think that in his­tory’s rear-view, his biggest achieve­ment will be hav­ing ripped music re­tail­ing out of the la­bels’ hands, and mo­bile soft­ware out of the tele­phone com­pa­nies’. We’ll see.
