The person who asked these questions looks like a very unhappy man. Don't think he has many friends either. Let's see now, hmm I wonder how many billion dollar corporations this sad sack person piloted and steered to success? How many successful pioneers have established success and greatness after many failures? Without testing and failures, we would not have those successes. Steve Jobs was a visionary, and the entire world and beyond is rocketed light years forward because of his vision to help and better mankind. The questioner should be asking himself why he is in the same room with Steve! Yet, Jobs was eloquent in his answer. The questioner left that day talking to his shoes!

Great thoughtful answer to the OpenDoc question, but curiously OpenDoc came back 20 years latter. So it was just too soon, and Jobs could see that.

the old problem engineering (tech side) vs. money (selling and marketing) how do you get an engineer that is seeing the world most important for his tech he develops to understand this? he is basically mostly isolated on just one side of the coin well he can be quite skilled no offense on that but still isolated and the world consist of the whole coin even for him. i mean he works for getting paid. so he sees meaning in his payment as well. jobs made a decision. not walking this isolated tech part anymore all the time. so how do you expect him to understand relations to opendoc software at points that had already been outside of where he directed his own work for the company more into? he trusted his engineering team. they build it for him. he was more interested into the selling and marketing part but to sell precisely the fact that there even is a product even more a company and that is based on newest latest tech (well at that times) it develops. basically just what the job of a good CEO just is!

No one can answer your question, because no one knows. But if you had any concerns about the question, it's a useful mental exercise to consider the biliions of years that preceded your birth, and ask yourself if that near - eternity causes you any anxiety. Probably not, because you did not exist then, and that enormous stretch of time is irrelevant to you. There is no fundamental difference between the time that preceded our birth and the time that follows our death. Both are equally irrelevant to us. What matters is how we spend the very brief time that we are alive.

Question for Steve. Steve, did you ever envision your computers being built by SLAVES in PRISONS supporting the largest COMMUNIST PARTY in history that has killed over 100 million people? All run by a gay traitor to the Constitution using the i phone as a CIA bug to select Americans to be droned, imprisoned used by Bill Gates to murder the population with vaccines in 2021.

@Wyatt Arent I started my software engineering career about 1993 (27 years). I do not enjoy Apple products but I am curious what products you made that you think someone like me enjoys; I don't have friends and I'm not like you assume. My point is your point: Trillion dollars rich and the only thing to show for it is comparable to my PC/Android which cost FAR less per year. The difference is apparently how much the palace costs that you sell it in. If you want to rob everyone, the evidence is you are rich but not them, and the best time for a robber is when we are sleeping (aka dreaming). That's why I say, Good night.
Asdfghjkl Lkjhgfdsa
Wyatt Arent The whole point of the damn video is that apple products are inferior but whatever. You could of spent less money on better equipment. I would never choose to buy apple products over something else. Apple sucks. People are probably bad with money. People waste money on nonsense because it looks better than it is all the time. It is very simple and it is a logical point. You calling someone a troll is devoid of substance. I don’t care if you respond or not nobody does.

I'm a professional software engineer with 5 years of experience and have worked on a variety of products that are enjoyed by millions of people like you and your friends every day. All my work is done on MacBooks. Apple products are excellent. There is zero substance to calling Apple users "stupid and bad with money." It is, on its face, false with the only purpose of being inflammatory. It's an edgy meme perpetuated mostly by trolls and the uninformed. This is the last comment I'm posting here.
Asdfghjkl Lkjhgfdsa
Wyatt Arent I mean it really doesn’t require much more detail. Just because my point is simple doesn’t make illogical or lack substance. You received a response directly to what you said. YOU are the one replying without a point

You know, I've owned some Apple devices trough the years. But none of them could really hold up. It was either bad battery life or insufficient software. I've followed Apple since 1983/4 and to me they were always an outsider. Looking back Apple is still that outsider. Too distinctive. Too local. Never able to merge with the rest of the world.

Jobs was another tard liberal except more savvy to sway the minds of nerd overachievers who need a digital demagogue. History will prove this was the birth of the nerd revolution. Oracle versus apple, microsoft versus everyone.....a true binary nerd fight! No winner were all losers thanks to cloud computing.

Fuck apple. Even after Job's "few" new ideas and a shockingly large amount of terrible business decisions, its anyone's guess as to how they managed to not drop off the fucking map and be bought out by some other tech company decades ago. Its amazing that they've lasted as long as they have, but now its an endless rollercoaster of piggy-backing off the same shit with the same name- even people KNOW they're getting the same thing as the year before, yet the Apple logo gives it some sort of unobtainable prestige. If more people were tech literate, Apple would've been sidelined years ago.

At 4.15 """people work below them""" what a horrible thing to say. Like worker ants, faceless, no names, just people working below....in the pits of despair probably on a minimum wage....my opinion is do not buy Apple products because the company appear to have no morals.

More of a Conman then a thief. He may have taken someone else product, but the way he presents the "product" is what makes you want to buy it. Say what you want about his business endeavors, he made Apple the tycoon it is now.

The guy is probably pissed because he learned open doc language and it became obsolete. He didn't need to be a dick about it but he was just upset. Imagine learning to write an app and then someone takes that ability from you by changing the language you write in. If you don't write software, imagine your high school English teacher returning your paper and saying, OK write it in Arabic now. Only Arabic is still being developed.
