Apple 1, morphed into Apple 2
which went further.
It was faster and had text display,
color graphics and its own plastic casing.
It was the first personal computer
that a human being, a normal human being,
a nontechnically human being could use.
I think Steve Jobs knew that
he was on to something big, real big。
But the revolution was about to be sparked on the tail of something quite small.
Jobs' stumbled on the technology in 1979 while touring Xerox.
Their Alto computer has a mouse that let users interact with images.
On the screen in that one little object,
he sees the future.
I can remember how computers were a bunch of codes.
You turn it on and you had to type a word or a set of code letters or numbers, whatever,
and then that would lead to something else.
It was like, you know, am I going to get the right code for the mystic in the box to give me what I want?
The mouse - it was so simple.
Jobs' didn't invent it, he reinvented it.
Reinventing, making stuff better
"改造 让东西更好用" 这一宗旨
would become his career-long M.O.
Meanwhile, Apple 2 sales are robust.
The company goes public in 1980
and Steve Jobs is suddenly worth $200 million.
This hadn't happened before,
for a 25 year old, to be worth hundreds of millions of dollars
when he was still young.
He was dashingly good looking。
He was this new symbol of entrepreneurship.
Apple continues developing the mouse.
Their first computer, the feature one,
the Lisa, released in 1983, is a flop。
Lisa 于1983年发布 却是个败笔
Turns out people don't want to 10 grand for a PC.
But Jobs' learns from his failure
and Lisa gives birth to the Macintosh.
