Steve Jobs explains here why Apple is not supporting Flash.

When asked about the AT&T iPhone call quality Steve Jobs said that AT&T is supposed to have it all fixed by end of Summer. When questioned about another carrier offering the iPhone, Steve just said that there might be advantages, but of course did not comment further.

Steve Jobs also said that Apple will not make their own search engine and Google stays on the iPhone.

Steve Jobs confirms his believe that the iPad launches the transition to post-PC era.

Steve Jobs also got asked about the whole iPhone 4G prototype showing up in a bar thing. Steve Jobs takes this very personally and will not let it slide. Quote: "You know, when this whole thing with Gizmodo happened, I got advice from people who said 'you gotta just let it slide, you shouldn't go after a journalist just because they bought stolen property and tried to extort you.' And I thought deeply about this, and I concluded the worst thing that could happen is if we change our core values and let it slide. I can't do that. I'd rather quit."
Engadget has a transcript of this interview segment and here is the video.

What comes across is that Steve Jobs really is Apple. The company is hyper successful right now and Steve Jobs is essential to that success.
