The Latest Cool Steve Jobs Video - NeXT Computer 'Entrepreneurs' Feature

For most people, Steve Jobs is the iconic black-turtleneck & jeans wearing icon who led Apple from near bankruptcy to become the most valuable public company in the world before he passed away recently. But there are more and more historical views of him popping up all over the place – and this is one of the coolest I have seen.

It is from a PBS series called ‘Entrepreneurs’, with an episode from late 1986 looking at NeXT Computer when it was merely 11 computers and a long road ahead before shipping their first computer. It is great to see how Jobs interacted with employees, and of course the use of the now-familiar term ‘reality distortion’ associated with Jobs.

Michael Anderson
I have loved technology for as long as I can remember - and have been a computer gamer since the PDP-10! Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!

  1. Have always wanted a NeXT Cube.  One other obsolete piece o crap I want is a BeBox.

  2. I never owned a NeXT but used the OS and tools for several years and absolutely loved them!  I also loved the BeOS when they released the Win32 version.

    It was one of the first dual CPU systems I knew of and booted FAST.  Too bad Palm bought them and did NOTHING with it.  But then there’s always HaikuOS.

  4. I used to run emulators of BeOS and NeXT way back when.  Ah, the good old days. 😉
