Unlike many outside Apple, company CEO Steve Jobs "can't wait to get to work in the morning", he told Fortune magazine.

An interview in Fortune reveals Jobs' commitment to his task, and asserts his claim that "Apple's DNA hasn't changed". Apple has not transformed itself into a "mass-market consumer electronics company" - it's the mass market consumer electronics sector that has changed "into Apple", he said.

The five question interview offers several pearls from the Apple/Pixar leader: "I've always said that Pixar is the most technically advanced creative company; Apple is the most creatively advanced technical company," he explains.

He also offers a warning to home audio manufacturers, pointing to changing tastes: "kids aren't getting stereos", he says, "they're getting speakers for their iPods". He observes that home audio manufacturers have never approached Apple to work its iPod into their plans, calling them, "prisoners of their own point of view".

Apple's remains focused on the user experience, he adds: "Software is the key to that. In fact, software is the user experience", he said. And Apple's "core strength" is to deliver cutting-edge technology to people that they can actually use.
