I know we’ve already mentioned the passing of Steve Jobs this week, but given that this is our weekly science segment, it felt right to dedicate some space to this video. This is an advert for Apple that was made back in 1997 (remember that?) and the voice you’re hearing is that of Jobs himself. It was a time before the ipod, before Apple had more money than the United States and when the company’s future was far from secure. Inspiring as it is, this version of the ad was never aired and was instead replaced with a version narrated by Richard Dreyfuss however, now more than ever, Steve’s version seems to speak from somewhere deeper.
Love him or hate him, we’ll never stop talking about him.
