Steve Jobs Offers World 'Freedom From Porn' - Apple - Gawker
http://gawker.com/5539717/

"I didn't plan to pick a fight with Steve Jobs last night. It just sort of happened: An iPad advertisement ticked me off; I sent the Apple CEO an angry email; he told me about "freedom from porn." [...] The electronic debate proceeded from there." Gawker journalist Ryan Tate accidentally gets into an e-mail debate with Steve Jobs. Fascinating stuff.

Rare is the CEO who will spar one-on-one with customers and bloggers like this. Jobs deserves big credit for breaking the mold of the typical American executive, and not just because his company makes such hugely superior products: Jobs not only built and then rebuilt his company around some very strong opinions about digital life, but he's willing to defend them in public. Vigorously. Bluntly. At two in the morning on a weekend. As much as Jobs and his actions anger me, and as harsh as I was to him, I came away from the exchange impressed with his willingness to engage. Apple has never tried to argue that cross-compiled Flash wears batteries down any more quickly than other Objective C code, and in fact approved more than two dozen such apps before changing its policies.
"What have you done that's so great? Do you create anything, or just criticize others work and belittle their motivations?"
