» John Markoff interviews iPhone team members

Museum Historian John Markoff moderates a discussion with former iPhone team members Hugo Fiennes, Nitin Ganatra and Scott Herz, followed by a conversation with Scott Forstall.

Finally saw the video last night, and it’s so good 1. Amazing insights and fun stories from hardware and software.

A few random thoughts:

  • Loved the fellowship between the first speakers.
  • When a questions was above their pay grade, none flinched before not answering.
  • Scott Herz is hilarious
  • Favorite moment is when Scott Herz says that he’d like a better text selection method on iOS. Here, here.
  • Scott Forstall personality feels acted. But I get the impression he’s a really smart person that gets into normal mode character to be able to communicate.

Very recommended.


  1. I watched it on the Facebook link, and was so happy when CHM posted it on YouTube. Say what you will, but Google is the lesser of two evils.
