MacStories details a new feature story from Fortune about Apple’s management including a number of previously unknown anecdotes about Steve Jobs. The story is presently only available as an in-app purchase in the Fortune Magazine App [iTunes], but should appear online and in print shortly.
One interesting story is about Steve Jobs’ reaction to the poor MobileMe rollout in 2008 which was marred with slow services and downtime.
“Can anyone tell me what MobileMe is supposed to do?” Having received a satisfactory answer, he continues, “So why the f*** doesn’t it do that?”
Jobs was also particularly angry about the Wall Street Journal’s Walt Mossberg not liking MobileMe:
“Mossberg, our friend, is no longer writing good things about us.”
Jobs reportedly appointed a new executive on the spot to run the MobileMe team. Another particularly interesting piece was the fact that Apple is actively planning and teaching its employees for “life at Apple after Jobs.”:
