Q. What can we expect from the book [you have coming out soon]?
A. You can expect stories about what really happened, how things were really done, key elements of it. I was a little disappointed — Steve Jobs had indicated he'd write a forward. But he'd never written a forward before and I said, 'Just write what we were like back then.'
We sent him the book and he said, 'Oh, I saw some excerpts, and I'm going to decline writing the forward.' I don't know why because I'm nice to him, so there must have been something he didn't like.
Q. Are you still close friends?
A. Not close friends. Even when Apple really got started we weren't close friends because he had a different motivation in the company, which was to run a company, and mine was just to be a top engineer that did clever, clever projects. So we almost never saw each other in the company."
