Me: Thank you very much for having me Mr. Jobs. My first question is, will you join the Giving Pledge, now that you have stepped down, considering your huge fortune?
Jobs: Hahaha. That is a good one! Oh, it hurts when I laugh. No son, I am joining a slightly different effort. It's called the Give Me Pledge. It comes down to the same thing, I'm asking super-rich folks to donate half of their wealth too, but it benefits me, hehe.
Me: I heard talk of a foundation. What is its purpose?
Jobs: Oh yes, that is the Steve Jobs Foundation. It helps to glorify my leadership. Got some good tips from Kim Jong Il for that. I can't wait to see that 100 foot marble statue it will build for me.
Me: Interesting. Question number two, how do you envision the future leadership at Apple?
Jobs: Well, I was told to not use this word so often but I just have to – it will be magical. Right now we're working on cloning me, so I can lead Apple for eternity. I mean, Tim is a nice guy for sure, but I keep having those nightmares in which he starts making all our iProducts sort of gay. Brrr.
Me: Wow, cloning, that's very advanced. How is it coming along?
Jobs: It's going pretty well so far, but you'll understand I am not at liberty to divulge any details… I just wish we wouldn't lose those damn prototypes. Last night one of my clones got drunk in a tequila bar in San Francisco. He did a whole karaoke show about the iPad 3 too. But, otherwise, we're right on track.
Me: Alright. So, question 3… why does Apple use the "i" prefix for products and services?Continued on the next page
