Steve Jobs on Starting Apple (1980 Video)

“We absolutely had no idea what people will do with [the PC] when we started out. The two people it was designed for were Woz and myself because we couldn’t afford to buy a computer kit on the market.”

“Man as a tool maker has the ability to make a tool to amplify an inherent ability that he has. And that’s exactly what we are doing here…. We are building tools that amplify a human ability.”

“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication–this is what we were striving for and this is what the Apple symbolizes.”

“Apple II will never be obsolete.”
