Steve Jobs Pissed Off at IDG Once Again, Decides to Kill Macworld

This is not the first time Jobs is having hissy fit over Macworld and its producer IDG World Expo

This is not the first time Jobs is having hissy fit over Macworld and its producer IDG World Expo. A few years ago when a genius IDG guy decided to move Macworld Expo East from New York City to Boston to save a few bucks, Steve Jobs was reportedly on the phone cursing every letter in the alphabet, and threatening to pull out of Macworld. At that time Jobs and IDG kissed and made up. I don’t know what happened today for Jobs to lose it and declare Apple is done with the Macworld Expo again.  I don’t believe Apple can afford to do what they announced today, their decision to kill Macworld. We will see if Mr. Jobs will cool down and think more rationally after sleeping over this decision. We will see.
