What Has Kept Me Interested in Tech?


The above video is a great example of the mind of Steve Jobs. It goes beyond tech. It's about finding your true interests, passions, and converting those into a way of life.

I wasn't always an Apple person. As a matter of fact, I still have never used their desktops / laptops because I prefer the upgradeability of a desktop PC.  But I've dived headfirst into the iOS ecosystem, and now I own an iPhone 4, and iPad 2, and an Apple TV 2nd Gen. What happened?

Jobs didn't put form over function or vice versa. He held them both equally important. Function would always attract the geeks, but form is what gets the average person to fall in love with a tech product.

At about the 5 minute mark, Steve says:

You have to trust in something ... because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart, even when it leads you off of the well worn path

Well said, sir.
