Дата рождения: 20. Май 1952

Уолтер Айзексон — американский журналист, писатель и биограф; автор популярных биографий Стива Джобса, Генри Киссинджера, Бенджамина Франклина и Альберта Эйнштейна.

Президент Аспенского института. Бывший директор телекомпании CNN и главный редактор журнала Time. В 2009 году был назначен директором Совета управляющих по вопросам вещания , которому подконтрольны радиостанции «Голос Америки» и «Свобода».


„Ревизия продукции началась с упразднения PowerPoint. "Терпеть не могу, когда люди показывают слайды вместо того, чтобы думать, – объяснял потом Джобс. – Они рассматривают проблему с помощью презентации. Я хотел, чтобы люди включались, чтобы обсуждали вопросы за столом, а не разглядывали картинки. Если человек знает, о чем говорит, ему не нужен PowerPoint".“ Steve Jobs

„Стив считал: в гениальном компьютере аппаратное и программное обеспечение должны быть тесно связаны. Если же на компьютер можно было установить программы, совместимые с другими компьютерами, в конечном счете пришлось бы пожертвовать частью его функциональности. Лучшими продуктами Джобс считал те, что продуманы от начала до конца и созданы цельными; программное обеспечение для таких компьютеров создано с учетом аппаратного, и наоборот. Это отличало тактику Macintosh, операционная система которого была совместима только с родным железом, от тактики Microsoft, операционную систему которой можно было использовать на железе, произведенном многими другими компаниями.“ Steve Jobs


„«Это самый дорогой телефон в мире, — говорил Стив Баллмер из Microsoft в интервью телеканалу CNBC. — При этом его целевой аудиторией не могут быть деловые люди, так как у него нет клавиатуры». В очередной раз компания Microsoft недооценила произведение Джобса.
К концу 2010 года Apple продала 90 миллионов аппаратов iPhone, и на их долю пришлось больше половины общей суммы прибыли мирового рынка сотовых телефонов.“
Steve Jobs

„One way to remember who you are is to remember who your heroes are.“ Steve Jobs

„If you want to live your life in a creative way, as an artist, you have to not look back too much. You have to be willing to take whatever you’ve done and whoever you were and throw them away. The more the outside world tries to reinforce an image of you, the harder it is to continue to be an artist, which is why a lot of times, artists have to say, “Bye. I have to go. I’m going crazy and I’m getting out of here.” And they go and hibernate somewhere. Maybe later they re-emerge a little differently. (Steve Jobs)“ Steve Jobs

„If you act like you can do something, then it will work.“ Steve Jobs

„If you just sit and observe, you will see how restless your mind is. If you try to calm it, it only makes it worse, but over time it does calm, and when it does, there's room to hear more subtle things - that's when your intuition starts to blossom and you start to see things more clearly and be in the present more. Your mind just slows down, and you see a tremendous expanse in the moment. You see so much more than you could see before. It's a discipline; you have to practice it.“ Steve Jobs

„People who know what they’re talking about don’t need PowerPoint.“ Steve Jobs


„Steve Jobs: “The best way to predict the future is to invent it.“ Steve Jobs

„I think different religions are different doors to the same house. Sometimes I think the house exists, and sometimes I don’t. It’s the great mystery. (Steve Jobs)“ Steve Jobs

„Picasso had a saying - 'good artists copy, great artists steal' - and we have always been shameless about stealing great ideas.“ Steve Jobs

„Walter Issacson biographer of Steve Jobs:

I remember sitting in his backyard in his garden, one day, and he started talking about God. He [Jobs] said, “ Sometimes I believe in God, sometimes I don’t. I think it’s 50/50, maybe. But ever since I’ve had cancer, I’ve been thinking about it more, and I find myself believing a bit more, maybe it’s because I want to believe in an afterlife, that when you die, it doesn’t just all disappear. The wisdom you’ve accumulated, somehow it lives on.”

Then he paused for a second and said, “Yea, but sometimes, I think it’s just like an On-Off switch. Click. And you’re gone.” And then he paused again and said, “ And that’s why I don’t like putting On-Off switches on Apple devices.”

Joy to the WORLD! There IS an after-life!“
Steve Jobs


„Some people say, "Give the customers what they want." But that's not my approach. Out job is to figure out what they're going to want before they do. I think Henry Ford once said, "If I'd asked customers what they wanted, they would have told me, 'A faster horse!'" People don't know what they want until you show it to them.“ Steve Jobs

„On the day he unveiled the Macintosh, a reporter from Popular Science asked Jobs what type of market research he had done. Jobs responded by scoffing, "Did Alexander Graham Bell do any market research before he invented the telephone?“ Steve Jobs

„You should never start a company with the goal of getting rich. Your goal should be making something you believe in and making a company that will last.

„Throughout his life, Albert Einstein would retain the intuition and the awe of a child. He never lost his sense of wonder at the magic of nature's phenomena-magnetic fields, gravity, inertia, acceleration, light beams-which grown-ups find so commonplace. He retained the ability to hold two thoughts in his mind simultaneously, to be puzzled when they conflicted, and to marvel when he could smell an underlying unity. "People like you and me never grow old," he wrote a friend later in life. "We never cease to stand like curious children before the great mystery into which we were born.“
