But since it was Jobs 's amendability to get Apple back on track, he wanted to focus on a less amount of products. It’s important in history because that was the point when Jobs wanted to be successful again. He did this by focusing on 1-3 products at one time. He showed anger when he yelled from frustration after a week of product reviews. During the development of almost every product, Jobs at a certain point ‘hit the pause button’ and went back to the drawing board where he planned how products would be created because he felt that it wasn’t perfect (Walter Isaacson).
