I've read this book about a guy that did not compromise his products.

I've used those products for decades.

Many of you use them to play this game.

I suggest that everyone that makes, supports or builds a product reads this.

It will make you want to be better at what you do.

Steve Jobs was a crook are you kidding me? He took a free idea, then made it into profit.

thumbs up - I read this book about a year ago. Jobs was an entrepreneur. He did not "invent" the computer or the iphone, he knew how to make the most of good ideas, and how to generate good ideas from people. He also bought Pixar from George Lucas and turned it into a masterpiece - again by retaining and stimulating the best people. He would not compromise - even the insides of the computers needed to look good. He had a sixth sense for the market.
He was also very flawed in many ways.

The three laws of Robotics:
1) A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm
2) A robot must obey orders givein to it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3) A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.


Of course I read it a long time ago.
