Apple: The Only Company Capable of Designing Products Properly, Thinketh Steve Jobs


You gotta love a CEO that falls in love with his own product to the exclusion of all else. In a NYT interview Steve Jobs calls the Macbook Air the most elegant of Apple's computer designs, lavishing affection even on its four adorable footpads.

"Some of the competitors' machines are so flimsy," he reportedly gushed, "they require a fifth or even sixth pad to keep from sagging."

Keep the image of those sagging competitor footpads in mind when you've absorbed his take on the Amazon Kindle and Google Android.

"Forty percent of the people in the US read one book or less last year. The whole conception is flawed at the top because people don't read anymore," Steve said of the Kindle.

On Android? "Having created a phone, it's a lot harder than it looks." He also said Android would "divide [Google] and people who want to be their partners." MacRumors observes this is almost the same thing Palm's CEO said about the iPhone.

If we had a "Shit-talking" category, this would be its first entry.
