He’s Back!

Steve Jobs returns to Apple after eleven years. He never so much as set A FOOT on Apple premises during that whole time, it was that traumatic.

He accepts his new position: to act only in an advisory capacity to the Board. But as soon as his position is official, he asks the entire board for their resignation, the same board that kicked him out 11 years ago. (Come on, you invite him back and you expect him to settle for “advisory capacity”? Dream on!)

“The old board met in late July to ratify the transition . . . Jobs appeared dressed in jeans and sneakers and . . . merely offered a pleasant, Hi, everyone.”

Steve Jobs, by Walter Isaacson, Chapter Twenty-Four: The Restoration

That’s how he greeted the Board! The Board he was about to fire!
