Jonathan Ive On Steve Jobs Reality Distortion Field
Quote from Walter Isaacson Authorized Biography of Steve Jobs
Jonathan Ive is the lead designer at Apple and he is responsible for creating many of the game changing Apple products. Jonathan Ive began his career at Apple in 1992. He became the head of Design for Apple in 1997. Walter Isaacson's authorized biography of Steve Jobs was just released and it has some very interesting quotes in it.
In Walter Isaacson's new authorized autobiography of Steve Jobs, Apple's lead designer, Jonathan Ive spoke about Steve Jobs taking credit for other peoples ideas and Ive said:
"He (Steve Jobs) will go through a process of looking at my ideas and say, 'That's no good. That's not very good. I like that one.' And later I will be sitting in the audience and he will be talking about it as if it was his idea. I pay maniacal attention to where an idea comes from, and I even keep notebooks filled with my ideas. So it hurts when he (Steve Jobs) takes credit for one of my designs.
In this first video Steve Jobs cites Pablo Picasso as saying: "Good artist copy. Great artists steal" to which I would like to respond with an IF-THEN Statement by pointing out:
"If good artists copy, and great artists steal, then real artists create." –Jake Ehrlich
