A former iPod product manager has uploaded his business card to Facebook – turns out, Mr Jobs was hiding a sense of humour under that turtleneck.

    It's funny that an HR website appears to condone this. Presumably, HR managers would not find this anecdote as amusing if it was told while Steve Jobs was being fired (i.e. before he came back and rescued Apple). So the lesson you are pushing is that you can tolerate a winner, no matter how politically incorrect they might be.

    I do think you'd have to know your audience but I know a few people that this could work for. And we've always tolerated bad behaviour from winners over the everyman!

    (And I didn't think the author was condoning... it seemed like the opposite to me!)
