Gawker bloggers certainly know how to push Jobs’ buttons.
On Friday night, after watching one of the company’s new ads promoting the iPad as “revolutionary”, Tate decided to sit down with a cocktail (probably a few) and email Jobs into explaining just how revolutionary a closed platform could be.
A question about “freedom” and a reference to Bob Dylan (famously Jobs is a big fan) turned into a lengthy email thread and much of the same Jobs stubborness with a disappointing ending because well, pulling the “what have you done that’s so great” card is just…cheap.
Besides, Jobs should know better than to get into a discussion with a blogger (not that he knew he was one) late on a Friday night. Wonder what the Apple board would make of this.
