Jackass of the Week, October 2000 Edition: Michael S. Malone

Via Fake Steve’s “favorite stories of all time” file comes this gem from Michael S. Malone, written for Forbes in October 2000, titled “Apple R.I.P.”:

Steve Jobs can’t run companies, but he has proven that he is a genius at motivating teams of people to produce extraordinary products. In fact, he may be the greatest project team leader in the history of high tech. That is no small achievement. But it does not translate to being the CEO of a giant corporation.
