Steve had an artist’s intuitive mind with the ability to dream up new ways to combine existing technology to create something completely new. Here he is pondering a solution to a technical problem being discussed at a company offsite meeting. Another of the many attributes that set Steve Jobs apart was his refusal to take no for an answer. Conventional wisdom said that what Steve wanted to do was impossible. He surrounded himself with the most brilliant scientists available, smarter than he was. But he gathered them to change the world, nothing less and did not care what established science viewed as impossible. One was described as “spitting teeth” he was so angry with Steve for not listening to reality. But Steve created his own reality. He dragged his geniuses kicking and screaming toward the future, banging heads and making people crazy until they somehow raised up the miracle Steve demanded.
