Daniel Kottke and Jobs with the Apple I at the Atlantic City computer fair, 1976 On the way home, after the stop in Oman to see Sultan Qaboos and get our delegation back on Air Force One, I flew to Geneva to meet with President Assad. Our team had been working to get Barak to make a specific proposal on Syria for me to present. I knew it wouldnt be a final offer, and the Syrians would know it, too, but I thought that if Israel finally responded with the same flexibility the Syrians had shown at Shepherdstown, we might still be able to make a deal. It was not to be. The Honeymoon The launch of the Macintosh in January 1984 propelled Jobs into an even higher orbit of celebrity, as was evident during a trip to Manhattan he took at the time. He went to a party that Yoko Ono threw for her son, Sean Lennon, and gave the nine-year-old a Macintosh. The boy loved it. The artists Andy Warhol and Keith Haring were there, and they were so enthralled by what they could create with the machine that the contemporary art world almost took an ominous turn. 鈥淚 drew a circle,鈥?Warhol exclaimed proudly after using QuickDraw. Warhol insisted that Jobs take a computer to Mick Jagger. When Jobs arrived at the rock star鈥檚 townhouse, Jagger seemed baffled. He didn鈥檛 quite know who Jobs was. Later Jobs told his team, 鈥淚 think he was on drugs. Either that or he鈥檚 brain-damaged.鈥?Jagger鈥檚 daughter Jade, however, took to the computer immediately and started drawing with MacPaint, so Jobs gave it to her instead. On March 12, Jordans King Hussein flew on Air Force One with me to a Summit of Peacemakers hosted by President Mubarak in Sharm el-Sheikh, a beautiful resort on the Red Sea favored by European scuba-diving enthusiasts. Hussein had come to see me at the White House a few days earlier to condemn the Hamas bombings and was determined to rally the Arab world to the cause of peace. I really enjoyed the long flight with him. We had always gotten along well, but we had become closer friends and allies in the aftermath of Rabins assassination. 亚洲 欧洲 小说 自拍,开心五月婷停深深爱 Arafat was also trying to wiggle out of giving up the right of return. He knew he had to but was afraid of the criticism he would get. I reminded him that Israel had promised to take some of the refugees from Lebanon whose families had lived in what was now northern Israel for hundreds of years, but that no Israeli leader would ever let in so many Palestinians that the Jewish character of the state could be threatened in a few decades by the higher Palestinian birthrate. There were not going to be two majority-Arab states in the Holy Land; Arafat had acknowledged that by signing the 1993 peace agreement with its implicit two-state solution. Besides, the agreement had to be approved by Israeli citizens in a referendum. The right of return was a deal breaker. I wouldnt think of asking the Israelis to vote for it. On the other hand, I thought the Israelis would vote for a final settlement within the parameters I had laid out. If there was an agreement, I even thought Barak might be able to come back and win the election, though he was running well behind Sharon in the polls, in an electorate frightened by the intifada and angered by Arafats refusal to make peace. They met in Jobs鈥檚 conference room, where Gates found himself surrounded by ten Apple employees who were eager to watch their boss assail him. Jobs didn鈥檛 disappoint his troops. 鈥淵ou鈥檙e ripping us off!鈥?he shouted. 鈥淚 trusted you, and now you鈥檙e stealing from us!鈥?Hertzfeld recalled that Gates just sat there coolly, looking Steve in the eye, before hurling back, in his squeaky voice, what became a classic zinger. 鈥淲ell, Steve, I think there鈥檚 more than one way of looking at it. I think it鈥檚 more like we both had this rich neighbor named Xerox and I broke into his house to steal the TV set and found out that you had already stolen it.鈥?
