CNET News Video: How Steve Jobs lives on in Apple

2:09 /

A year after Jobs' death, his legacy grows. His impact is still being felt, and a newly discovered talk from 1983 speaks to his insightful vision.

-A year has passed since Steve Jobs' death, but his star has hardly faded. -So, what I'd love to do now is you stuff. -In fact, this is the opposite. His legacy is probably increased because people-- now that he's gone-- reflect on some of the things that he did and realize what a genius he was. -A newly unearthed speech given by Jobs at the international design conference in Aspen in 1983 offers a glimpse at his uniquely futuristic vision. In it, the Apple CEO describes what sounds like an iPad. -What we wanna do is we wanna put an incredibly great computer in a book that you can carry around that you can carry around with you, that you can learn how to use in 20 minutes, and we really wanna do it with the radio links in it. -Jobs goes on to say that software should be sold electronically with customers getting samples just as radio stations offer a taste of a record album. -We'll give you 30 seconds of this program for free. I will give you 5 screen shots. We'll let you play with it for a day, and you wanna buy it, how can your raise the number when you got it. I don't know how we're gonna do it, but we need a radio station. -That may have been the genesis of the iTunes and app store. Ideas that jobs help shape and create, still fill Apple's product pipeline. -We're gonna see innovation in new products that still have Steve's stamp of approval for at least another 3 years. -The iPhone 5 has already sold millions globally. A pint size version of the iPad is rumored to be unveiled in mid-October and jobs revealed to his biographer that had "finally cracked the television." -Beyond Apple's products, we'll continue to see Steve Jobs' vision in other places. This is the future site of Apple's new campus. Jobs' described it as looking a bit like a spaceship that had just landed. -You've seen these office parks with lots of buildings and they get pretty boring pretty fast. -The 4-storey ring with it's curved glass shuns standard silicon valley architecture, unconventional and elegant, the hallmark of Steve Jobs' design. In San Francisco, I'm Sumi Das, CNET.com for CBS news.
