How Big Can Apple Get?

Fortune publishes a short 5-question interview with Steve Jobs which addresses the iPod's effect on Apple and Apple's current success. The teaser interview leads to a longer (subscription) article entitled "How Big Can Apple Get?" which provides more thoughts from Steve Jobs.

MacObserver hilights the key points from the article which will also appear in print in the Feb 21, 2005 issue of Fortune. It provides some interesting insights into the recent history of Apple from Steve Jobs' perspective.

Of interest, according to the article, Apple approached Adobe in 1998 to develop consumer targeted Video/Photo software, but Adobe said "no"... which triggered Apple's decision to develop its own software (FCP, iPhoto, iMovie).
