A then 28 year old Steve Jobs gave a passionate speech on his vision of ways that personal computing and technology had the potential to develop and impact our lives, how we communicate and do business. Luckily for us, he succeeded on most of it and lived long enough to get us off to a great start.

Listen to Steve outline his plans with for things like maps, networking, mobile computing, independent retail distribution and empowering people with DIY tools with all the clarity and vision we’ve come to know him for.
