It's weird that China slavery working style is blamed to the guy, it's been around for years before Apple's revival , and it's actually how China thrive into today's economic force, Foxconn is not exclusively producing Apple's product, and if not for such way Apple products is produced, how can you get the iPhone for 199 ? Even Samsung won't sell their Galaxy line for anything less.
It's all marketing crap that everybody does, Microsoft do it, Nokia do it, even Google do it, just that Steve ( and Apple ) can do it better , turning whatever crap into shiny things, more effectively than any other people can ... I love using Mac, I use it to code for iOS and Android, i don't hate Windows although not too crazy about it, and Linux ( and may other *nix ) is a platform of choice for servers I maintained for my clients, and for what it's worth, I adore Steve Jobs for his assholeness :p because that's what drive him to push the envelope and do good things.
