2017-36 - Innovation is...

Once Steve Jobs was giving a small private presentation about the iTunes Music Store to some independent record label people.

There were a lot of interruptions with people popping up left and right asking, "Does it do [x]?" and "Do you plan to add [y]?"

Finally, Jobs said, "Hey guys, wait a minute... and please put your hands down. Listen: I know you have a thousand ideas for all the cool features iTunes should have. So do we. But we don't want a thousand features. That would be ugly. Innovation is not about saying yes to everything. It's about saying no to all but the most crucial features."

"Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower."

~ Steve Jobs
