True enough, a person could get nauseous trying to figure out Steve Jobs.
But I wouldn't mistake his opaque method of operating for a lack of guile.

Unlikely. The three much more obvious reasons: (1) the board of directors
is new, (2) the company is perceived as a "sinking ship", and (3) working
for Steve Jobs can be hellish.
In the time it takes me to boot up my Windows 95 PC in the
morning, Big Bill's portfolio gains a cool million or so
in value. The crime of it all seems obvious to no one but me.
