Our goal isn’t to make money

Jonathan Ive, for The Telegraph:

“Our goal isn’t to make money. Our goal absolutely at Apple is not to make money. This may sound a little flippant, but it’s the truth,” said the British designer. “Our goal and what gets us excited is to try to make great products. We trust that if we are successful people will like them, and if we are operationally competent we will make revenue, but we are very clear about our goal.”

What a simple concept. Make something people can get exited about and want to buy, and the money follows.
