The Long Strange Journey of Steve Jobs
I have been lucky enough to attend several Macworld expo keynotes, particularly one in 2000, early in Steve Jobs’ return to Apple when he announced OS X and the 2007 macworld when the iPhone was first announced. After watching the Bloomberg episode I was inspired to relive the 2000 keynote in seven-minute segments via YouTube. It’s been a long strange journey indeed. So, whether your are a veteran of 6502 or Z80 era or someone who just recently became aware of Apple after seeing all those crazy lines at the mall whenever they do that iPhone thingy, check out Bloomberg TV’s Game Changers: Steve Jobs.
