iPad is Steve Jobs' Way of Saying "Screw You" to Everyone

Steve Jobs is the most brilliant manager ever, and the iPad is his way of celebrating his victory. Here is how he is doing it.

Steve Jobs is saying "screw you" to the following with the IPad:

1) "Screw you" to Amazon for not only playing in the technology space but for thinking that you could dominate the digital reader market.

2) "Screw you" to Verizon for initially rejecting the iPhone.  We are going to continue to exclude you from providing service to our products.

3) "Screw you" to iPhone users in New York and San Francisco for complaining about ATT service on the IPhone in those cities.

4) "Screw you" to Google for thinking that you could develop a platform that might compete with ours and for trying to develop a product that competes with our phone.

5) "Screw you" to Gil Amelio and the others who kicked me out of Apple in the 1990's and failed miserably with the Newton.

6) "Screw you" to my friend Bill Gates who thought that tablet computers represented the next great frontier for Microsoft (try selling one of your tablets while the general public is waiting for my product to come out at $499).

7) "Screw you" to Intel, Qualcomm, SanDisk and any equipment manufacturer who thought that maybe I was going to put your expensive components into my product instead of my own components.

8) "Screw you" to women for thinking that you have any sort of proprietary use of the term "pad" or that I was going to market my product in way that is not offensive to you.

9) "Screw you" to anyone who actually believes that IPhone applications will be more useful (or useful at all) on a large screen and is going to buy what is essentially a large IPhone with no voice or camera capabilities.

And finally ...

10) "Screw you" to the general public who is just going to consume this device like there is no tomorrow purely because it is made by Apple.
