Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson

I highlighted so many great parts of this biography, that it’s hard to pick just one to share. But this—from the day he resigned as CEO—is quite salient:

When the talk turned to tablet computing, some expressed a sense of triumph that HP had suddenly given up the field, unable to compete with the iPad. But Jobs turned somber and declared that it was actually a sad moment. “Hewlett and Packard built a great company, and they thought that they had left it in good hands,” he said. “But now it’s being dismembered and destroyed. It’s tragic. I hope I’ve left a stronger legacy so that will never happen at Apple.”

Me too.
