Steve Jobs was an asshole

You can tell everything about a person by how they treat people who bring them food. It’s a subservient position, one that’s easily taken advantage of or belittled by egomaniacs. From Walter Issacson’s upcoming bio on the Apple co-founder.

Jony Ive, Apple’s longtime design chief, tells Isaacson; perhaps that’s why he parked in handicapped spots, was rude to every waiter he ever encountered, and believed he didn’t have to bathe.

From personal experience I can tell you that Evander Holyfield and Bill Laimbeer are also a-holes. Former Atlanta Hawks coach Lenny Wilkens, who tipped $50 during the Christmas holidays, is not.

  1. Add Phil Kent to that list (as if we needed to). I once witnessed him leaving pocket change for a bar tab. As if we needed any reinforcement for already perceived notions about him.

  2. It is funny that he was idolized by the left – some assholes are more equal than others. Never underestimate that old wheel rolling around again…..

  3. Too bad. It is possible to be innovative, successful and compassionate. Love his products but I don’t get all the worship from the “fanboys”.
