Actually, Apple's designs and software has been taking steps away from what Steve would've wanted. They are slowly, but surely, straying from Steve's vision for Apple. So he actually wouldn't know. If he was still alive today, he'd be outraged if any of the rumors were true.
Wow, and I thought I made unfounded assumptions (at least related to headphones) without any facts or first-hand information, or am I making an unfounded assumption that you weren't close personal friends with Steve Jobs?
