We've added to the podcast a package of articles published on AllThingsD.com that reflect on the life and legacy of Steve Jobs. Included are two pieces from Walt Mossberg—one published when Jobs stepped down as CEO of Apple and the other upon his passing. We've also added posts from Ina Fried, who wrote about Bill Gates' sentiments on the passing of Jobs, and about The Three Irreplaceable Qualities of Steve Jobs.
Steve Jobs appeared for the last time on the D stage in 2010. He focused on the recently released and wildly successful iPad, but also touched on controversies with Adobe, intellectual property, Apple’s Chinese manufacturing, and maybe most notably, the end of the “PC” era.
Steve Jobs discussed the crucial need for setting product priorities, how mobile devices relate to desktop computers, and Apple’s fledgeling retail stores. He was asked the question that was on everyone’s mind—”What about an iPod Phone?”
Not long after taking the CEO job at a troubled Apple Computer, Steve Jobs appeared on the first D stage to discuss his plans for the future, his changing role at NEXT, and his views of the technology landscape.
