    The Legacy of Steve Jobs, at Code 2022

    The Legacy of Steve Jobs, at Code 2022

    Tim Cook, Sir Jony Ive, and Laurene Powell Jobs unpack the life and work of Steve Jobs, the legendary Apple co-founder who changed consumer technology forever. Jobs was a regular guest at Code conferences, appearing at the first All Things D in 2003. Over the years on the Code stage, he predicted the end of the PC era, bantered with his arch-rival Bill Gates, and famously denied— and later teased— plans for the iPhone. Now, he’s remembered by three luminaries who knew him best: Cook, his protege and successor; Ives, who translated his ideas into iconic designs; and Powell Jobs, founder of Emerson Collective and Jobs’ wife of 20 years, until his death in 2011.
    Recorded September 7, 2022 in Los Angeles.

Smart and entertaining

Thank you Kara and Scott, for sharing your insights, passion and knowledge, all of which serve as inspiration to this neophyte entrepreneur.

The dawg and the jungle cat!

I could listen to Scott all day - his is truly a voice of empathy, wisdom and wit.

And the show is the perfect mix of insight and humour. This is one of handful of “listen to immediately” shows for me.
