Binge-Watch Steve Jobs Through The Ages

Over the decades, Steve Jobs improved the lives of billions of people, but rarely did he talk about his own.

We combed the internet for 10 hours worth of the best things Steve Jobs ever said publicly, from 1980-2011.  Instead of re=watching Orange Is The New Black, or Arrested Development, why don’t you revel in the future, and binge-watch Elon Musk.

In these videos Jobs discusses Apple, Pixar, NeXT, the future, and more. Enjoy.
