Steve Jobs. 1992

Three takeaways:

  • His vision on education. Education is an important market because you train tomorrow’s engineers and they tell you what’s wrong with your product. I wonder how much of it will still resonate in Tuesday’s event. (48:23)
  • Why companies should invest in hardware and software. He argues if you want to sell great software you need the hardware to subsidize the development. I wonder if today’s Apple has made a 180 on that? You can argue they are now more about hardware than ever before. (18:03)
  • Train people when they make mistakes instead of fixing the mistake. Invest in people (51:20)

Also, if anyone can explain me what he means with Objects?  I get the gist but an example of companies that sell objects would be great Does he mean something similar to homebrew packages but commercially?
