Intolerant people must be silenced

This philosophy is one to which I’ve adhered for as long as I can remember. It’s how I run meetings at Apple. It’s how I deal with our business partners and suppliers. And our customers. And I’m glad to see that this philosophy has now reached the blogosphere. Folks, there’s no room in this world for intolerant people. Life is just too short. Haters, meanies, negative people, people who disagree with me — I can’t have them around. They pollute my karma. They fog up my vibe. For me to create, I need optimal conditions. Peace. Quiet. Serenity. Complete and absolute obedience from everyone around me. Do you want iPhone 2.0 and 3.0 and 4.0? Do you want more iPods and iMacs and beautiful products that bridge the Internet and your TV, and restore a sense of childlike wonder to people’s lives? Then get rid of the negative people on the blogosphere.
