Steve Jobs: The Lost Interview

Last night, Miguel and I went back downtown to our new, favorite movie theater to see a special showing of the 1995 lost interview with Steve Jobs...recently discovered on VHS after 16 years!

The interview in its entirety is being aired in special screenings across the country by Landmark Theaters, but I can’t wait to get my hands on a permanent copy because it was wonderful!

Steve Jobs was charismatic, witty and visionary. It was fascinating to learn about his pioneering days with Steve Wozniak and how a tour at Xerox influenced later Apple products.

The closing question asked him what he foresaw for the future of technology (which was interesting from the perspective of knowing what actually happened during the following sixteen years) and his remarks on what the Internet would do almost gave me the chills.

Steve Jobs was a genius who truly sought to make great and innovative products for the consumer. He said that the “way that we're gonna ratchet up our species is to take the best and to spread it around to everybody so that everybody grows up with better things."

And I think we can all agree that he certainly accomplished that – with his inventions of the iMac, iPod, iPhone and iPad!

If you’re a fan of Apple, Steve Jobs and/or inspiring people, this is a must see!
