The iPhone was made because Steve Jobs hated this guy at Microsoft

TwitterFacebook

The now iconic design came about because of a personal grudge Steve Jobs had against a Microsoft exec.

Speaking at an event Tuesday, Scott Forstall, who lead Apple’s iOS software division under Jobs, recounted the surprising history behind the company’s first touchscreen prototype, which ultimately lead to the first iPhone.
