2007: Steve Jobs shows Fadell’s future

The time: January 2007; The place: Steve Jobs announces the first-gen iPhone. The event – around the 5.15 point in this clip you’ll see the Apple boss add a name to his favourites list, and then delete another.

“Tony’s changing his number, so I won’t need that”, said Jobs as he deleted him. Tony of course is iPod father, Tony Fadell, whose departure was revealed last week. I’ve said it before – he’s honest is Jobs, but never transparent. Daring Fireball found this first.
