Steve Jobs interview from 1983 uncovered with spot-on predictions for the future

Steve Jobs interview from 1983 uncovered with spot-on predictions for the future

From a casette tape recovered this week by Marcel Brown of Steve Jobs speaking at the 1983 International Design Conference in Aspen comes an interview that reveals several baffling predictions from the Apple co-founder. It was John Celuch of Inland Design who possessed this tape up until just recently, each of the attendees of the speech receiving said speech (and Q and A) on the tape you see here - rather lovely, isn't it? This tape has the number 20 on it, this leading us to believe that there may have been a limited amount of these tapes created - but it's moot now as the internet spreads the love in a wide way.

Jonathan Ive tribute to Steve Jobs video rings true one year later

Jonathan Ive tribute to Steve Jobs video rings true one year later

This Friday is the one-year anniversary of the passing of Steve Jobs, and one of the most moving - and interesting - tributes remains the speech given by Jonathan Ive on the 19th of October, 2011, at a private Apple event. This private ceremony displayed giant images of Jobs with his own Mac computer and smiles abound, while Ive reminisced on not just the way his late associate worked, but how he thought and acted as well. It's in this video that you'll get another taste of Jobs' father's "back of the cabinet" philosophy as well.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 2, 2012

Welcome to Tuesday evening, everyone. The afternoon brought us a number of interesting stories, including brand new shots of what appears to be the long-rumored iPad Mini. Speaking of devices with the word "Mini" in their name, some are thinking that Samsung will announce the Galaxy S III Mini next week after German press invitations suggested something along those lines. iOS 6 adoption has hit 60% of Apple's user base, and we found out today that Motorola has dropped its ITC lawsuit against Apple, but we don't why just yet.

Steve Jobs anecdotes continue with Scuff Marks breakdown

Steve Jobs anecdotes continue with Scuff Marks breakdown

As Steve Jobs' legacy continues through the products he had a hand in, so too does his memory stick around through a vast collection of stories worth retelling, like the one being told this week about his first appearance at an Apple Store in Palo Alto. This story comes from an Apple and NeXT-related collection being released imminently in Forbes by Connie Guglielmo who, in some cases, experienced Jobs-related events she tells about in person. The story about the Scuff Marks bears retelling as it's little more than black marks on a floor that spur the wrath of Jobs back in 2004.

Tim Cook wraps up his first year as Apple CEO

Tim Cook wraps up his first year as Apple CEO

It hardly seems like it has been a year since Tim Cook took over as CEO of Apple. In fact, it has very close to a year since Steve Jobs passed away. That sad anniversary will happen on October 5. Cook has now been on the job for a year, and it's hard to say he has done anything other than a fantastic job over at Apple. I think many people expected to see Apple on the decline after the death of Steve Jobs.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: August 6, 2012

We're back to Monday folks, but thankfully this particular Monday provided us with a lot of interesting news. Of course, Apple and Samsung's court battle is still raging on, with Samsung today claiming that Apple pressured 3G experts to change evidence. Apple detailed the icons it accuses Samsung of ripping off, while Samsung made a case for the uniqueness of its handsets up on the stand. Samsung was looking pretty decent there for a while, until an expert Apple witness took the stand to say that the iPhone and the original Galaxy S were "substantially the same." Ouch.

Steve Jobs secretly “very receptive” to iPad mini

Steve Jobs secretly “very receptive” to iPad mini

Steve Jobs' famed dismissal of 7-inch tablets may have been more misdirection than authentic dislike, with internal emails shared during the Samsung lawsuit revealing the founder was "very receptive" to a smaller iPad. The tablet tidbit was revealed during testimony by Scott Forstall, Apple's senior VP of iOS software, in the San Jose court, with Jobs' attitude described by senior vice president of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue after he himself had an epiphany of sorts following some quality time with the original Samsung Galaxy Tab.
