Leander Kahney’s Inside Steve’s Brain is out

stevesbrain.jpg

It’s hard to believe that one man revolutionized the operating system business in the 2000s, converting Windows’ extraordinary market dominance into the reviled seven-year ditch that is Vista, and squandering billions on confused advances into ill-understood peripheral markets like video gaming and music hardware. No wonder some people worship him like a god. On the other hand, stories of his epic mid-morning bacon blowouts and viscous duckwebs of greasy sweat are legendary.

Wired.com’s Leander Kahney cuts through the salt-ringed tide marks that surround him to unearth secrets to his unbelievable results. It reveals the real Steve.

Wait… what?

    I’ve rarely seen someone more off-putting in almost every way.

    (He does alway seem to wear what starts out as a decent shirt and I’ll give him props for that. It’s only fair.)

    That being said I eagerly await WinXP SP3, so go figure.

    “Steve Jobs has turned his personality traits into a business philosophy”…yeah, he sure has. Let’s hope too many follow his philosophy and the mad temper that goes with it..if he thinks he is super-brilliant and the rest around him are bozos, perhaps we should pack him off to Mars where he will be alone and can enjoy his genius in the company of nobody…let’s call NASA and check out when the next spaceship starts

    I’m amazed, though, at how well their video game foray has gone. Maybe not financially good for them, but they’ve become a market player at least.

    Oh, and DEVELOPERS!

    Developers! DEVELOPERS! DEVELOPERS! DEVELOPERS! (sweat) DEVELOPERS! Convinced now? Of course you are.

    eh eh eh… this version of the book would have been called “Inside Steve’s viscous and grotesque parody of a tule elk’s brain”
