Usually Apple’s co-founder Steve Wozniak has only good things to say about Steve Jobs, but in this in video he leaks some of his true feelings and tensions on the deceased Apple cofounder. Towards the end, when asked about the departure of Apple’s Scott Forestall, he says “I don’t believe Steve had to be as much of a rugged bastard, putting people down and making them feel demeaned”.
This is a very interesting admission, confirming the comments of many past employees of Jobs.
Now if only you could present like steve jobs?
Don’t you dare say cloud computing is the future. It’s just now coming into the mainstream, but Steve Jobs has had a cloud computing system since 1989 when he worked at NEXT. WATCH!
In the video below, Steve Jobs talks first about his cloud computing system he’d built which automatically backed everything up to the servers around the world that we now know as the cloud, and loaded those files onto his computers at Pixar, Apple, home (iHome?), and NEXT. He talks about never losing a file, always having a backup, and having synchronized autosaved copies. In 2011, 14 years later, Apple would unveil iCloud, a system that did just what he’d already built more than two decades earlier. Cloud computing is not new. It’s over 24 years old. It’s just so resource-intensive that it wasn’t economically viable on a widespread scale until 2010 or so.
And how about Google’s chromebooks? Steve Jobs discusses in the future storing all data “in the cloud”, and eliminating the hard disk, and all moving parts from the PC. That’s exactly what Google’s chromebooks do, and how they’re designed. This isn’t the first time he predicted the future to a tee.
There once was a time when the Macintosh was manufactured in the USA, in Fremont, California. At the time, Apple was a more transparent company, and they made a video showcasing the process by which the mac was made and tested in that factory. This factory was Steve Jobs’s pride and joy. He built it from the ground up to look good, instead of just working efficiently. Notice the robots, and floor tiles, both touches of Jobs. That factory is long gone, replaced by secure Asian facilities, but the video is still here, and it’s fascinating if you’d like to watch it below.
Ironically, Tesla Motors, with the same revolutionary attitude that Apple had at the time, has their factory in Fremont as well, only miles from the site of this tragedy. Tesla has the same futuristic aims of domination, and the same clean factory design. The question is, can they achieve their goal without compromise? Until we find out, enjoy this video.
