Jon Rubinstein Sends Encouraging Email to TouchPad Staff

In that spirit, Richard Kerris, head of worldwide developer relations for webOS, reminded me yesterday of the first reviews for a product introduced a little over ten years ago:

“…overall the software is sluggish”
“…there are no quality apps to use, so it won’t last”
“…it’s just not making sense….”

It’s hard to believe these statements described MacOS X – a platform that would go on to change the landscape of Silicon Valley in ways that no one could have imagined.

John Gruber: “I think that analogy works.”

But where it does not work: Jon Rubinstein ≠ Steve Jobs.
