Bartley's insight:

I love the fact that Salesforce is ahead of Apple today on innovation (Forbes). Benioff did listen up good when he met with Jobs for advice:  he has the determination to do things his own way, while taking Jobs' advice, he looks from the inside out, to understand what people need and design from there.
