"Since we believe in choice, we're going to be shipping other internet browsers as well on the Macintosh, and the user can of course change their default should they choose to" — Steve Jobs, 1997

@bugaevc Corporations don’t believe in anything except what will maximize their profits for the next quarter. That’s how we designed them to be. We designed sociopaths, we got sociopaths.

@aral @bugaevc Yea and I wonder how much of that quote was to go against the current anti-trust lawsuits going on in the EU against Microsoft.

@djsumdog @aral that was immediately after Steve announced they were making IE the default browser on Macintosh as a part of a deal with Microsoft

@aral @bugaevc I’d say it’s more “You get the behaviour you incentivise”
