The iPod Turns 10: How It Shaped Music History

The iPod Turns 10: How It Shaped Music History | Steve Jobs | Scoop.it

"Like many Apple products, the iPod wasn't the first device of its kind. But like many examples of Jobs' legacy, it was the product that did it best; it was the first to show listeners that a piece of technology could be more than useful; it could be cool, and eventually impossible to imagine living without. And it was the first to convince musicians that the same fans that had stolen their creative output would be the ones they should reach out to, and iTunes offered that opportunity in its most direct and personal form. Jobs and Apple defined a market where once there was none, and profited greatly from it; but more importantly, they defined a future for an industry that was struggling to find its way through the challenges of the present."

This is a story coming from it : the sadness of Steve Jobs to see what used to represent excellence for him being "dismembered and destroyed".

"I once forwarded an email from Steve Jobs to a friend, adding a snarky comment. Steve's reply informed me that I'd replied, not forwarded."



I like Steve's reaction


He was exigeant. But I hope never without deep reasons, like getting the best from his collaborators and without forgetting to have a sense of humor when necessary.

AN ABSOLUTE MUST READ : A Sociology of Steve Jobs by Kieran Healy

AN ABSOLUTE MUST READ : A Sociology of Steve Jobs by Kieran Healy | Steve Jobs | Scoop.it

"Steve Jobs had charisma. What does that mean? Narrowly, it means something about the force of the man’s personality and its effects on those who worked for him at Apple. More broadly, it has something to do with his gradual emergence as a cultural icon over the past decade."


Just read the whole post, believe me.

Steve Jobs' Bold Leadership | frog

Steve Jobs' Bold Leadership | frog | Steve Jobs | Scoop.it

"The following is an excerpt from A Fine Line: How Design Strategies Are Shaping the Future of Business, the book written by frog Founder Hartmut Esslinger in 2008. Hartmut and frog worked with Steve Jobs at Apple in the early 1980s to create the “Snow White” design language for the Apple IIc computer, and again in 1985 when Jobs briefly left Apple and started the computer company NeXT, where Hartmut and frog designed the NeXT Cube. In this passage from the book, Hartmut offers a glimpse into those tumultuous years for Apple and Jobs, and some insights into why the Apple CEO’s creative and strategic vision became so effective."

I think these pictures shared by Mike Matas became viral not only because you see the man behind the icon.

You also see the passion, like a kid trying a new fun gadget. Keeping this spirit is so hard but make a big difference.

A VC: What We've Lost And What We've Gained | Steve Jobs | Scoop.it

"So we've lost the man. He will no longer bring us great products. He will no longer bring us the future in the present.

But we've gained a legend. He will inspire others to bring us great products. He will inspire others to bring us the future in the present"

Steve Jobs, John’s Blog

Steve Jobs,  John’s Blog | Steve Jobs | Scoop.it

"I’m a little uncomfortable with the outpouring of sentiment about people who want to be like Steve. There’s a sort of beatification going on that I think misses the point. He was never a nostalgic man at all, and I can’t help but feel like he would think this posthumous attention was, in a lot of ways, a waste — seems like he’d have wanted people to get back to inventing.

On Twitter yesterday Naval nailed it, as he often does: “I never met my greatest mentor. I wanted so much to be like him. But, his message was the opposite. Be yourself, with passionate intensity.”

That’s it, I think — that’s the biggest message from Jobs’ life. Don’t try to be like Steve. Don’t try to be like anyone."

Al Gore on Steve Jobs:  He’s The Kind of Guy That Comes Along Once Every 250 Years (Video) | Steve Jobs | Scoop.it

"But more important than all that, he created an organization and inspired it, that really creates technology that people literally love. And the emotional attachment that people have to the degree of excellence embodied in Apple’s products is really quite unique and extraordinary. And that’s going to continue. There’s so many things in the pipeline, and the team that he built is hitting on all cylinders. It is, in my opinion, the best in the world, bar none. …You can go right across the list and every single one of them is world class. Every single one of them could be the CEO of a major corporation.”

Simplicity, among other things, is a conscious choice between inclusion and exclusion. Often the magic is in what you leave out. But this means that you need to be comfortable with saying no, to yourself and to others.

plucky tree: the last time I saw Steve Jobs

plucky tree: the last time I saw Steve Jobs | Steve Jobs | Scoop.it

"A family was standing near the Apple sign outside the building, a common site for people to take photos on their pilgrimages to Apple.

The father turned to Steve as he passed close by and asked, "Excuse me, sir, would you mind taking our photo?"

Steve paused for a moment as an iPhone was extended to him, realizing that they didn't seem to know who he was. With a hint of enthusiasm, he said "Sure!" as he took the iPhone into his hands.

Steve took a great deal of care composing the photo, backing up a few steps several times, tapping the iPhone screen to lock focus, then said "Smile!" as he snapped the photo, grinning a little bit himself to encourage the family to follow suit."


I just love this story.

Steve Jobs and the Purpose of the Corporation

Steve Jobs and the Purpose of the Corporation | Steve Jobs | Scoop.it

"In the torrent of commentary following Steve Jobs' death, few have noted that his career and his company say something profound in the endless debate about the purpose of the corporation. Apple existed to "delight customers" first — benefits to other stakeholders, including shareholders, followed."

Good post. Except Apple always refers to us as "users" more than customers.

Why do people love Apple so much?

read the answer of Heidi Alden :


"I trust Apple to think about me and my wants and needs from the types of products they sell and I trust that what isn't perfect today will be perfected beyond my own imagination tomorrow & I feel valued - I can't think of any other purchases at these price points where I could feel anywhere close to being as valued as I am by Apple which is manifested in everything from their marketing emails to the purchase and subsequent enjoyment of the product."


Everything is said.
