If he had lived, Steve Jobs would have turned 59 today. In recognition of Jobs’ birthday, we've sifted through the video archives to find some awesome clips about, and featuring, the late Apple co-founder. We hope you enjoy.
The Stanford AddressIn 2005, Steve Jobs gave one of the greatest commencement addresses in recent history. In it, Jobs discusses key events that had shaped his life. One of the most famous quotes from the address is this:
I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.Take a look: http://youtu.be/UF8uR6Z6KLc
The Mac is introducedJobs founded Apple alongside Steve Wozniak in 1976. It wasn't until 1984, however, that the first Mac was introduced. Take a look: http://youtu.be/MQtWDYHd3FY
One More Thing ...A Stevenote was never complete until he mentioned "one more thing." Among the products introduced this way were the colorful iMac (1999), the iPod mini (2004), and FaceTime video calling (2010). Jobs' final "one more thing" was iTunes Match in June 2011, just four months before he died. Take a look: http://youtu.be/hvlHi7iTdaw
