Link: The 1983 iPad ☍

Shared on October 2, 2012

John Moltz provides some amusing commentary on a vintage recording of a talk that Steve Jobs gave in 1983 at the Center for Design Innovation. It took 27 years, but they finally got there:

Matthew Panzarino details a Q&A session by Steve Jobs where he seemingly describes the iPad… in 1983:

“Apple’s strategy is really simple. What we want to do is we want to put an incredibly great computer in a book that you can carry around with you and learn how to use in 20 minutes. That’s what we want to do and we want to do it this decade,” says Jobs. “And we really want to do it with a radio link in it so you don’t have to hook up to anything and you’re in communication with all of these larger databases and other computers.”

How you can read this and not be convinced of the time-travelling properties of LSD I have no idea.

Jokes aside, kids, don’t do drugs. SchwarzTech cares.
