Walter Isaacson, Steve Jobs’ biographer, talks Jony Ive’s departure

Fascinating reminder of just how close Steve and Jony were.

Lots of interesting bits in there, but one quote stood out to me:

I think what you’re seeing now is a company that knows how to execute pretty well. But it doesn’t have at its core these two spiritual soulmates who just lived and breathed the beauty of products.

I believe there are visionaries at Apple today, and with Jony leaving, I think the big shadows cast by Steve and Jony will pass, and new giants will emerge.
