Watch Steve Jobs Talk About Apple and Technology Before the Post-PC Era in 1995

Steve Jobs was interviewed by the Computerworld Information Technology Awards Foundation in 1995, two years before his return to save Apple from bankruptcy.

CIO has published the 75-minute unabridged interview with Jobs. In the video, Jobs discusses his outlook on technology and Apple during a pivotal time in history. All of the products we know and love today—like the iPhone, iPod, and iPad—had not been created at the time, but Jobs was surely conceptualizing the future he would shape in the years to come.
