Steve Jobs kicked things off at D8 last night and while he didn’t reveal anything we didn’t already know about himself and Apple, he did have a few choice quotes that everyone has been milking for the last 12 hours. The above video is a brief snippet of his chat with Mossberg and Swisher over Flash.
Below are a few choice video (and some text) nuggets on topical things like iPhonegate, Foxconn, Microsoft, Google, AT&T, the iPhone’s origin and the publishing industry.
“Foxconn is not a sweatshop. They’ve got restaurants and swimming pools. For a factory, it’s a pretty nice factory. But this is very troubling to us.”
“No, we don’t see ourselves in a platform war. We never saw ourselves in a platform war with Microsoft, either…Maybe that’s why we lost. But we never thought of ourselves in a platform war; we just wanted to make good products.”
