“I always thought, for him to die young, it seems so strange. Because other people of his magnitude, like Henry Ford and Thomas Edison, you sort of feel, like, we wrung everything out of them, they were old when they died. With Steve Jobs you really got the sense like “Ah! We’ve not done with you yet!” and there is this sense that, you know: “So what are we supposed to do now, how do we know what’s next?”. It’s sorta like an alien that comes down and gives you this new technology and then kind of show you how to use it and takes off in the spaceship and you’re like “Ahh! What’s this green button?”
