From “Jony Ive on What He Misses Most About Steve Jobs” posted Monday by the WSJ Magazine:
I have barely thought about Steve’s death.
My memories of that brutal, heartbreaking day 10 years ago are scattered and random. I cannot remember driving down to his house. I do remember a hazy October sky and shoes that were too tight. I remember afterwards Tim and I sat quietly in the garden together for a long time.
Since giving Steve’s eulogy I have not spoken publicly about our friendship, our adventures or our collaboration. I never read the flurry of cover stories, obituaries or the bizarre mischaracterizations that have slipped into folklore.
But I think about Steve every day.
My take: A loving memorial. Very good on Jobs’ curiosity (“ferocious, energetic and restless”) and on the quality of Steve’s though processes…
His rigor and tenacity set a dizzyingly high bar. When he could not think satisfactorily he would complain in the same way I would complain about my knees.
