All Things Digital Steve Jobs Podcasts now available free
Last year saw the sad passing of the iconic Steve Jobs, who continues to be held in high regard inside and outside the tech world, and even his fiercest rivals held the man in great esteem. Today we have the news that the entire back catalogue of Steve Jobs appearances at the annual All Things Digital conference are now available free.
There are a number of videos of the late Steve Jobs around ranging from his famous unveiling of new Apple products, and his often quoted Stanford commencement address, but arguably some of his best appearances were at the annual All Things Digital conference. As an article on the website is stating the great man made six lengthy appearances where he regularly answered unrehearsed questions.
These took place between 2003 and 2010, and the onstage conversations he outlined the company’s changing ideas of where the digital world was going. Back in 2004 he revealed that Apple had produced a PDA, but decided not to release it in the end, and in 2007 he was joined on stage by rival, Microsoft’s Bill Gates.
He quite often talked about the company’s rivals and stated the importance of providing products for users and not “orifices”, like corporate IT departments or mobile phone carriers. It was revealed that it was often more important to choose what products and features not to provide before picking the ones that would be made.
The podcasts have been made available because The Wall Street Journal that is owned by the News Corp has come to an agreement with Apple to provide all six Steve Jobs talks at the events available as a free download on iTunes. Before now only the D5 and D8 have been available on iTunes, and conference hosts Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher have revealed that the content is available as a way of paying tribute to the great man.
