Steve Jobs and the Leadup to the iPhone

This New York Times article about Apple’s internal prep for the iPhone is a great read. One of my favorite quotes is about how Steve Jobs would belittle employees.

Very rarely did I see him become completely unglued — it happened, but mostly he just looked at you and very directly said in a very loud and stern voice, ‘You are [expletive] up my company,’ or, ‘If we fail, it will be because of you.’

Brutal.
