One of the German car designers commented that Apple is the only other company they admire and try to emulate because of the product’s beauty, ease of use and overall style. I think that’s high praise from an automotive firm that puts a lot of effort into creating the “ultimate driving machine.”

But several of my colleagues over the years saw his dominating side and I know he could be a brutal taskmaster and no-holds-barred negotiator. I have tremendous respect for his extremely clear and consistent marketing.

Can’t wait until the full biography comes out. I’d be very skeptical of any reconciliation between Jobs and Sculley, it was an acrimonious ending, whereas Gates is actually the one who put up the money to save Apple in the 90s.

Typo in your bio: “Esther have taken on challenges in private aviation and space”

Small complaint: Couldn’t have happened exactly as described here, as Diet Coke wasn’t released into the market until the fall of 1982.
