Guardian Story Ostensibly About What It’s Like to Have a Meeting With Steve Jobs

Sort of a bait and switch, in my opinion: this piece written by former Apple sales executive David Sobotta is billed as an insider’s view of what it’s like to have a meeting with Steve Jobs and what his thoughts are regarding tablet computers and mobile phones, but, really, it doesn’t seem like Sobotta ever had much face time at all with Jobs, and the piece is really mostly about Sobotta’s completely speculative predictions about Macworld Expo. The most interesting tidbit is Sobotta’s claim that Jobs is so secretive he won’t allow people to take notes when he speaks during meetings.

The best ever “what it’s like to meet with Steve Jobs” tale of recent vintage remains Cabel Sasser’s “The True Story of Audion”.
