​@J V19 And I'm totally for that thought. Like you don't just create random tech and try to make it fit society. You gotta firstly figure how that tech will be benefitial and actually solve a problem and not just be a new extra feature for the sake of getting along with the newest. Although, open source is a huge point that needs to be looked at more carefully by these companies, something that definately should be put in practice. But again, not for the sake of the newest, but because it actually solves a big problem, which is trust, security and so on.

Why people are so idiots do not understand that Steve Jobs, like Gates and all their capitalistically Fuchsia Rainbow are just part of a whole corrupt and parasitic system, which pollute our planet with their stupid, and they would like to make us believe that they are genes (they are not) and have made a lot of money thanks to the circus that their little friends have put up themselves? You have not yet understood that we are only and just slaughter meat for them. Are you still here to applaud them?

The pause before his answer I think is something we can all learn from. Instead of getting heated and just flap out something stupid and not thought through, he went and put his answer together first and instead of just focusing on the guy asking the question, he answered with an answer for the whole crowd. I'm glad this popped up in my suggested videos!

Don't know if this was his intention, but briefly pausing before giving any answer, instead of jumping straight into it, will make you appear more intelligent as you speak. It's a straight up speech technique lol

Question: why does this do that better than your product Answer: it does, but it only does that thing better while we focus on making system, that accomodate for a much wider and diverse group of users It's like going to Mercedes and asking why their S-Class doesn't have the same Nurburgring lap time as the audi r8 although they cost equally as much. R8 is only useful for racetracks, while your S-class is way more practical.

@Edward Brownson used to see it all the time was really sad to see these fools wanting to be the first to own an iPhone. Apples advertising is very clever, but I stopped using them after iPhone 4 as android gave me more control over what to do with my phone.

@New Projects he actually did answer both questions: he didn't know much about stuff the guy asked about, because for the past years he's been working on understanding customers' needs and giving directions on how to do that to the development teams Edit: also, how else is business supposed to work, Jobs had his own vision and shift of interest so he decided other things were better idea to develop than the OpenDocs
New Projects
New Projects 3 months ago
His response came of like a political speech to me... redirecting the attention of the matter instead of answering his question directly (the guys who asked was probably upset because of OpenDocs, which is reasonable and valid because the years, time, and money invested into it essentially went to waste) so I wouldn't say it was good leadership and just because his speech contained almost no fillers didn't mean he was exactly being direct with his answer. Just notice how he mentioned about making a product that would make 10 billion dollars a year and how he would see his products through the eyes of the customer instead of engineers that could make the next best things of technology. Both of those are irrelevant to his question regarding the discontinuation of OpenDocs. Again, *redirection*

It's that "if you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs" thing. I've worked with people like that gentleman in the audience and they create nothing. They serve a dwindling base of customers and think tactically rather than strategically until the company runs out of customers and shuts down. The funny thing is, whether you hate Apple or not, what Jobs is saying here has become the industry best practise for developing new products. It wasn't always that way. Google, Microsoft, etc. have all ended up making better products because of Apple's product development process. There's not a tech company today that's successful that doesn't operate like this.

@DB Cisco Correct. So what? If there’s an actual point you want to make, just say it. These flippant little comments contribute nothing to the discussion. If you’re talking about Apple stealing the IP behind WIMP GUI from Xerox… I can only guess since a complete thought is something you’re either unwilling or unable to express… you’d be wrong again. Apple paid Xerox. 🤷

The original Nintendo wii was a great example of what he speaks about in terms of starting at the customer's experience. The wii was technically a weak machine even compared to other consoles of the time. The fact it did so well, was purely down to the experience it offered! It wasn't far from Nintendo's greatest achievement

As a long term employee in info tech I was able read all the industry media from the mid 80s. The one conclusion you could draw about Apple was that they royally messed up lots of times and could have easily gone out of business. Mr. Jobs was able to bully his way forward using and then maybe discarding people who knew what they were doing. By no means did he have the right set himself up as a genius visionary no matter how much he enjoyed it.

@Jay Kay calm down big guy. Nowadays everyone can learn programming and it isn’t that hard compared to decades ago. Watch and see thr programming languages get included from the early stages of education and by a very young age - be ready for the technology world. Pretty much, it will be the same as learning english or any other languages in general. Most foreign schools start learning english from the third grade, so perhaps that’s when kids will get introduced to programming and start climbing the lather from there. Learning has become much easier nowadays thus creating really smart kids. For instance, my niece is 6 years old and she already speaks 3 languages and knows tons of stuff cuz of the availability of materials online.

Beautifully done by Jobs. You have to remember that in the mid 90's Apple was a basket case, run by people without vision. They made beige boxes that were unreliable and expensive. Everthing that came after MacOS 7.1 was basically dodgy. Jobs turned around the Titanic. But from the arrival of the iMac to OS X, it all turned round and headed in the right direction.

Great handling of an obviously angry or resentful person's public intentions to cause embarrassment. Love that he didn't immediately respond, but took his time to think over what was a wise use of words and what was or wasn't going to accomplish anything, such as replying to what he personally was doing recently. What would that even accomplish anyway...🤨
Christian Hegele
In fairness to the dev who asked this question, he was responding directly to Jobs's previous answer where he said some arguably questionable things. Like how grumpy engineers who he fired from Apple "hadn't done anything in seven years" and that, justifying his termination of Open Doc specifically, "there are some things in the Java space that I think are much better." (which if you know anything about these technologies is a total non sequitur). The dev is clearly pissed off and rude, but you have to place his adversarial "question" in context of what Jobs just said.

To everyone who is saying Steve Jobs didn't answer the question: He is literally describing "a cohesive larger vision" which is THE FUCKING ITUNES APP STORE! He already had the idea of a easy to use software development environment where Apple and 3rd parties push out billions of dollars of applications every year. That is the answer to the "how java addresses the ideas in opendoc" which was a bullshit open ended question anyway. Jobs said, it does not fucking matter because we will create an environment with java that is much more conducive to develop and sell applications. The second part of the question was not a question just and insult so did not need answering.

@FL33T WOOD Yes, he was a visionary not a pure inventor. He saw where the market is going, thus he had vision. He made better, more practical versions of the early MP3 players, smart phones, and personal devices. In his words he had "cohesive visions".
FL33T WOOD Month ago
@Uncle Mario iTunes was initially a direct result of the iPod, not Mac. Around this video, iPod wasn't even in the picture, let alone iTunes. Steve saw the potential and hired the creator of the iPod, then music was needed in a platform...thus "iTunes" happened. iTunes was popular for like ten years. The iPod starting waning away as the iPhone took away it's purpose, then eventually iTunes went dormant for the most part these days. I'm not taking anything away from Steve Jobs. He mostly knew what was attractive for a consumer in a world full of nerds who had no idea what they had in their hands. I mean, we all encountered the early siblings of todays smartphones & iPods. Back then Palm Pilots was the future in our eyes, then the Razor released.....why don't they just combine the Razor antennas with a Palm Pilot? Years later we had the iPhone....was obvious step in evolution. Clearly, again Steve wasn't a nerd, but a consumer in position-of-power of a company who could deliver.

Well he didn't answer it directly, which is totally fine. Steve was giving the reasoning why the vision was bigger than the application, even if it is a better technology. Itunes is kinda irrelevant in this specific conversation, because that's just speaking in hindsight.

The thing is, that most of the time they don't even try to answer, they just can't.

He's the prime of American consumer markets, and consumer markets is also what shaped politics to be the show that it is nowadays.

@Alnas Kabeer This guy groove is one of those people, who needs free stuff. Bet this guy supports communism too. Apple was revolutionary and its competition caused so much innovation in this industry. The current price of apple phones are bizzare, but idiots buy them, and i respect the business for convincing idiots to buy them. Apple phones arent bad by any means, but they are very limited to specific functions and options, and are usually suited to people that dont tinker too much and stick to specific mainstream apps. Say if i wanted to use my phones camera stream it live to my pc and use it in a video call its impossible to do it with an apple device easily. While one an android its easy as writing an adb code.

Why people are so idiots do not understand that Steve Jobs, like Gates and all their capitalistically Fuchsia Rainbow are just part of a whole corrupt and parasitic system, which pollute our planet with their stupid, and they would like to make us believe that they are genes (they are not) and have made a lot of money thanks to the circus that their little friends have put up themselves? You have not yet understood that we are only and just slaughter meat for them. Are you still here to applaud them?

I started in IT in 70's and ended up as a tech manager in one of the largest telcos. I built systems for government, retail chains, auto and pharmaceutical companies. Believe it or not the IT world did take many wrong turns. And a lot of the innovation like Agile, Jira, BI, Big Data is just the same old stuff packaged up to sell to managers who aren't tech savvy. From a professional point of view he should have just said "yes, you are correct". The worse thing you can do is BS and use anecdotes to pro's. They have high IQ's and logical reasoning scores and deal in facts. A real issue today is that tech is increasingly more closed. The only people who can afford it are corporations and students who will enter corporations. COVID is a good example of what happens when the unskilled like politicians and law enforcement get control of a situation that experts should have handled.

And that's wrong. As a IT developer the right formulation is "we need to create a tecnology that fit the needs of the customers". You can't build a house from the roof (customer experience), but you can figure how build a good looking house with the right tecnology.

@MKRM27 expressing my opinion has nothing to do with sycophanty (which is a Greek word and this explains why you make wrong use of this word). So accusing me that i am a sycophant, renders you the perfect sycophant yourself boy. "No" is not accepted, even if you were God himself. Opinions that cannot be justified like yours, should better kept for yourself. You avoid humiliation this way.
