Fortune: “Eight people who rarely speak publicly about Jobs explain what makes him one of the best business minds of our time.” Love this bit from Larry Ellison:
I remember when Steve was my neighbor in Woodside, Calif., and he
had no furniture. It struck me that there wasn’t furniture good
enough for Steve in the world. He’d rather have nothing if he
couldn’t have perfection.
And I jokingly said, “The difference between me and Steve is that
I’m willing to live with the best the world can provide. With
Steve that’s not always good enough.”
