On the eve of the 25th anniversary of his death, entrepreneur, journalist and former Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who had just finished his term as president, had this to say: “I wanted to give a message of hope and encouragement to those who are suffering today.
I have so much to do and so many great people to thank for this great day.
Today, we are making the best of what we have and making it happen.
Thank you to all of you who have been there with me through thick and thin.
Thank God for this moment.”
The day Jobs gave his final speech, it was a moment of universal emotion, and it would become an instant icon of the Apple brand and its values.
But what did Jobs actually say?
In this exclusive excerpt from Steve Jobs: The Biography, author Daniel Kohn, a New York Times bestselling author of the biography Steve Jobs and co-author of the new book, Steve Jobs’s Rise and Fall, tells the story of how Jobs had a vision of the future that he shared with the audience in his final public remarks.
We speak to Kohn to get a deeper insight into Jobs’s life and his vision for Apple.
* * * Steve Jobs has been a symbol of the American dream for a long time.
He came to the US from Germany in 1952 and went on to become the youngest person to lead a Fortune 500 company, Apple, at just 22 years old.
Jobs was an icon to many who followed his path of entrepreneurialism.
He was also a visionary who knew how to turn a company into a powerhouse.
He had the vision to do just that.
The Apple Watch, Apple TV and other products are products that are emblematic of Jobs’s vision and the company’s success.
The vision for the future Jobs saw in his vision is something that many believe was the original core of his success.
In a 2013 interview with Vanity Fair, Jobs said: “My vision for this company is to have a device that is an ecosystem.
I believe that all the devices that we’re talking about today are an ecosystem, and so that’s my vision.
Jobs’s dream for the Apple Watch was to have an entire device that was connected to the internet and could do everything you could imagine with that kind of a computing power. “
The idea that we could put together an entire ecosystem and then let people buy into it, I believe we could do that.”
Jobs’s dream for the Apple Watch was to have an entire device that was connected to the internet and could do everything you could imagine with that kind of a computing power.
But that vision has been dashed time and time again.
In 2016, Apple announced it would no longer support third-party apps on the Apple Watches.
Apple eventually relented and allowed developers to use its own app store, but not all third-parties were happy with that decision.
In 2019, Apple made a move that many hoped would give the company a bigger presence in the world, but the company ultimately abandoned that plan.
Apple was then forced to shut down its flagship retail stores in San Francisco and Los Angeles, in the same city where Jobs had built his company, and instead opened a second store in Chicago.
Jobs’s legacy has become more difficult to trace as he has left the company.
The Jobs of today has been replaced by the new Steve Jobs who is much more of a product evangelist and is not shy about sharing his vision of what he hopes the future holds.
He is now the CEO of a company that has more than 3 billion users and is worth more than $800 billion.
In his book Steve Jobs on the Rise and the Fall, Kohn reveals how Jobs came to be known as “The Terminator” because of his work on the internet in the late 1990s, a time when the Internet was still in its infancy.
He said: The Terminator was not Steve Jobs in the early 90s.
The Terminator is Steve Jobs.
In 1999, Jobs told the Wall Street Journal that “I think we’re going to be in a world where everything is connected to everything else.”
Jobs believed that he could build a system that would let everyone do everything they needed to do.
The internet, and Jobs’s ability to create and maintain a massive database of people’s information, was a key part of that vision.
He also believed that his company could create a product that would allow everyone to do everything that they needed, and then give them a sense of self-esteem and purpose.
In the same interview, Jobs also told the magazine: I think we will be a world in which the world is connected and we are all part of it.
And it is not just about what you have to do in order to be part of the world; it is about your life, and your relationship to the world.
Jobs had been working on this vision of a connected world for over two decades when,
