Jobs made at Educause. Of course, the team had pretty much been
dismantled at the time he made the statement.

I have always wondered if I would buy the iMac and then Jobs would decide to re-focus again and kill the iMacs. (I know, a bit over the top but Apple lost a serious convert (me) when they killed the Newton the way they did) You can't (or maybe you all can) imagine the crap I took at work once Apple killed the Newt. I think they all were suffering from Newt-envy!
