Jobs wanted "a little man in every Mac"

Exactly right.

I actually kind of miss that game!

Steve Jobs also wanted to keep tech salaries artificially low in Silicon Valley (so he illegally conspired with George Lucas and others to do so)


I prefer Edward G Robinson’s little man from Double Indemnity.
