So begins Brett Bilbrey's 715-word response to the question "What was it like to deliver a presentation to Steve Jobs?

It's a response that has drawn some attention - 315,000 views, 4,800 upvotes - since it was posted last month because Bilbrey was not just any third-party developer pitching a new app. He was a prolific Apple inventor and a key team manager whose name appears on more than 50 patents and whose engineers developed, among other products, Apple TV and the Mac Mini. From 2008 until his retirement in February he headed the company's top-secret Technology Advancement Group charged with developing forward-looking technology for products of which he cannot speak.
But he can talk about what it was like to deal with a notoriously difficult boss.

Brett Bilbrey retires from Apple Brett Bilbrey, the man who ran Apple's technology advancement group, has retired after twelve years with the Mac, iPhone and iPad maker. Unlike some of Apple's retirements, however, it looks like Mr. Bilbrey really did simply retire.

He was instrumental in helping design the Mac mini, iSight camera, and Apple TV, and is named in several patents Apple holds. His most recent job at Apple was running the Technology Advancement Group for the past five years. He toldNetwork World,
I headed up the Technology Advancement Group, where my teams prototyped many projects for Apple. Of course, nothing that I can speak of. All I can offer about the Technology Advancement Group is that it is focused on forward-looking technology that can be deployed in products.
For now, Mr. Bilbrey is free to enjoy his retirement, but that may not be long lived. His LinkedIn profile hints that he's always on the lookout for something interesting to dive into, saying, "Retired (Well, till I find something fun to pursue)."
