Letter written to Steve Jobs from Mike Daisy
As you are a brilliant, analytical man, I’d like to show you my mind before you jump to conclusions of myself as a person and professional. My motives were purely based on the end, and sacrificed your company’s reputation as the means. I’ve been obsessed with technology my whole life, so naturally hooked into Apple as well. Yes, I use and love my Apple products. It’s impossible to dislike Apple, and your company holds the consumer technology market at its mighty fingertips. And with all that glory, comes media attention, competition, and responsibility. Apple, rated the number one company in the USA, will always be under the nation’s microscope, alike any other super valuable asset to this world.
We both know that business ethics, at the expense of both humans and the environment, is an ever growing problem in this modern industrial day and age. Whether Apple is innocent or guilty, there will always be a spotlight shined upon it. As a journalist and entertainer, I found a way to best use my resources in order to shift the spot light to a business ethical issue at hand. I’m sorry that your company was the stepping stone, but Apple will live. The future will be better because of it. RIP.
