Federighi seems like a really nice guy but that Joswiak guy seems a little bit too full of himself. Or is it just me?

This is one of those few times you can genuinely say Steve Jobs would not act like this. His interviews give real substance and thought.

Joswiak answers were just smartass ones with no substance.

They don’t look happy to be there.
They behave like politicians who don't want give any wrong answer and just want to repeat their usual talking points without saying anything substantial.

I feel like he was being extremely arrogant. Hope to God he does not become the CEO of Apple one day. I was not happy with his smart a** answers. Just acting like he is too good for everyone. Felt like he was talking down the whole time. Acting like he is the best there is and the best there will be. If he didn't want to be there. He should not have accepted the interview. ?
He reminds me of Steve Ballmer. He would not be good at the head of Apple, he's a pompous destroyer.
