Just Out: Steve Jobs Talks About His ‘Obsolete’ Legacy
A newly available video clip of Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) legendary former CEO Steve Jobs has surfaced online. The clip comes courtesy of the Silicon Valley Historical Association and was initially reported on by Jim Dalrymple on his blog The Loop.
The clip dates from 1994, when Jobs was still running NeXT Computer, the company he founded after being fired from Apple in 1985. In the clip, Jobs seems to be responding to a question about his legacy and how the computer technology industry is different from other endeavors.
Although Jobs is still recognized as one of the most important industry innovators today, the former Apple CEO frankly stated that, “All the work that I have done in my life will be obsolete by the time I’m fifty.”
