Steve Jobs

What privacy entails, in Steve’s own words

Steve Jobs tried to warn Mark Zuckerberg about privacy in 2010. This video clip of Steve at the D8 conference from June 2010 articulates what online privacy meant to Apple back then. Fast-forward eight years and nothing has fundamentally changed in the way Tim Cook & Co. approach accessing user data and protecting their privacy.

Steve Jobs originally thought Genius Bar would never work

When Apple’s former retail chief Ron Johnson presented the idea for tech support stations—dubbed Genius Bar—that would be located inside the company’s brick-and-mortar stores, Steve Jobs loathed the concept and thought it would never work.

“I remember the day I came in and told Steve about the Genius Bar idea and he says, ‘That’s so idiotic! It’ll never work!’”, Johnson told Recode.

Remembering Steve Jobs, who would have turned 62 today

Steve Jobs, Apple’s late co-founder and chief executive, would have turned 62 today. Perhaps best known to the general public for his penchant for carefully choreographed product presentations and unique leadership style, Steve passed away on October 5, 2011—the day after the iPhone 4s unveiling—of respiratory arrest related to a rare form of pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor he was diagnosed with in 2003.

Apple celebrates 10-year anniversary of first iPhone unveiling

Apple on Sunday posted a press release entitled “iPhone at ten: the revolution continues.” The announcement recognizes that it’s been 10 years since Steve Jobs unveiled the original iPhone, and reflects on how far the handset has come.

By now, everyone knows the story. On January 9, 2007, Steve Jobs took the Macworld stage and told the audience: “every once in a while, a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything.” And the rest, as they say, is history.

Read Tim Cook’s email to Apple employees about fifth anniversary of Steve Jobs’s death

Yesterday marked fifth anniversary of Steve Jobs’s passing. The legendary Apple co-founder died on October 5, 2011 of respiratory arrest related to the pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor he was diagnosed with back in 2003. As we reported, Apple’s boss Tim Cook paid tribute to Jobs by sharing one of his famous quotes on Twitter.

He also emailed a touching message to Apple employees, this part stuck with me: “Steve also taught me that life’s great joy is in the journey, not in any particular occasion or event. It’s not about shipping or selling or winning an award. The real joy is in getting there.”
