Geschiedenis van Infinite Loop

Steven Levy verzamelde voor Wired een verzameling anekdotes van gebeurtenissen die zich afspeelden op Infinite Loop. Mijn favoriet:

Scott Forstall: "Whenever I ate with Steve, he insisted on paying for me, which I thought was a little odd. Even if we went in together and he selected something quick like premade sushi, and I ordered a pizza in the wood-burning pizza oven, he would wait for me at the cash register for 10, 15 minutes. I felt so awkward. Finally, I told him. “Seriously, I can pay for myself, so please don't stand there and wait for me.” He said, “Scott, you don't understand. You know how we pay by swiping your badge and then it’s deducted from your salary? I only get paid a dollar year! Every time I swipe we get a free meal!” Here was this multibillionaire putting one over on the company he founded, a few dollars at a time."

De pijnlijkste:

Gill Amelio: "I knew Steve would never allow a partnership, and that my days were numbered. But I did what I thought was right for the company."

Opmerkelijk: geen quotes van Jony Ive. Dit terwijl hij in dienst kwam bij Apple op het moment dat Infinite Loop in aanbouw was.
