Apple vice president of Technology Kevin Lynch is the man who first showed off Apple Watch months before it was available, and was deeply involved in the smartwatch's development. He's also the guy Steve Jobs squared off against in the fight with Adobe over refusing to allow Flash on the iPhone. At the time, Mr. Lynch was Adobe's chief technology officer and was publicly defending Flash when the movement to dump the platform was on the rise. Turns out Steve Jobs tried to hire him away from Adobe after their fight. Mr. Lynch turned him down, but accepted the opportunity later. He shared his experience in a recent commentencement speech at the University of Illinois. It's worth a watch because it offers some great insight into Mr. Lynch as well as Mr. Jobs.
