If you’ve ever wanted a visual example of the difference between Apple with Steve Jobs, and Apple after Steve Jobs in the 1990s, I think this video really expresses things well. This is video of a Keynote address from 1990.
This video is only 5:55 long – but it seems like it goes on FOREVER. This is excruciatingly boring. It lacks passion, entertainment value, and well…Steve Jobs.
Compare that to this post from earlier in the week. At the 1998 Keynote Jobs is so engaging that you could basically watch him read the phone book and it’d be entertaining for half an hour.
