Less than a week before he makes an appearance on stage that people really care about, Steve Jobs said Tuesday that “there might be” another wireless carrier in the iPhone’s future, that he won’t let Gizmodo “extort” Apple over a stolen iPhone and that despite Google’s intrusion into Apple’s core businesses, his sex life is pretty good.
To say the least, Jobs touched on many issues as he was interviewed by gadget guru Walt Mossberg and journalist Kara Swisher at the 8th annual All Things D Conference. Jobs appeared feisty and healthy, albeit relatively slim. Of course, he was wearing a black turtle neck and blue jeans — does he sleep in those? — and acted like the CEO star he has become.
Here’s a link to the complete story I wrote for Appolicious.com.
Meanwhile, here’s a video of what Jobs had to say regarding the lost iPhone affair and Gizmodo.
My favorite part is what he told Swisher about the advice he got in the wake of the “lost iPhone” saga — and ignored.
“When this whole thing with Gizmodo happened, I got advice from people who said ‘you gotta just let it slide, you shouldn’t go after a journalist just because they bought stolen property and tried to extort you.’ And I thought deeply about this, and I concluded the worst thing that could happen is if we change our core values and let it slide. I can’t do that. I’d rather quit.”
