Health: Calling the Doctor
Long Lines at a New York Soup Kitchen
It was the joke?!
They are laughing because APPLE is a great company, and is ironic what he said.
Maybe by saying this, Steve tries to express the Apple's condition.By the way that was a good point he's trying to make.Yeah Kevin is right when you come across a leak first of all you should fix it, and then try to direct the ship.
Answer to your questions: It's not really funny, but it is a joke. Imagine a sinking ship. What is the most important thing to do at that moment? Fix the leak, right? But Steve Job says his job is to point the ship in the right direction. In other words, he says his job is to pilot a sinking ship in the right direction. Without complete context, this is not very funny, but at least you can understand that his answer was unexpected for the problem he described.
I don't know why they are laughing
I also did not understand the irony :(

I don't get it.
That was hard. I had to relearn the pronunciation of ship. You have to explosively pronounce the 'p' .
I don't know why they are laughing.
