Steve Jobs and Blogger in Heated Email Exchange
Steve Jobs and Gawker writer Ryan Tate ended up in a heated email exchange Friday night. Tate published the email thread in which he attacks the Apple CEO over various topics including the iPad, Flash, App Approvals, and the lost iPhone. Tate opens the exchange with:
If Dylan was 20 today, how would he feel about your company? Would he think the iPad had the faintest thing to do with "revolution?" Revolutions are about freedom.
Jobs seems to keep his cool during much of the debate and defends the closed App ecosystem as well as Apple's decisions to restrict certain developers such as Adobe:
Gosh, why are you so bitter over a technical issue such as this? Its not about freedom, its about Apple trying to do the right thing for its users. Users, developers and publishers can do whatever they like - they don't have to buy or develop or publish on iPads if they don't want to. This seems like its your issue, not theirs.
Jobs ends with:
By the way, what have you done that's so great? Do you create anything, or just criticize others work and belittle their motivations?
