While Steve is comfortable in front of large crowds, he's essentially an introvert in denial. Years ago, he told me "When I'm on an airplane, and they're showing a movie....I get my laptop and watch my own movie. Sometimes it's the same movie. I just want to watch it alone."
I thought he was loony. Then this morning, I found myself on the elliptical machine at the gym. With 9 forty inch screens showing everything from CNN to an old Hall and Oates video (Say it isn't so!), I watched the NBC News. Through my earbuds. On my iPod's 2 inch screen.
Sometimes it's just good to be alone.
