I'm really excited

to be here.

We have something really special

to share with you today.

In total, between iMac

and PowerBook lines,

we have sold over three

million units this year.

Okay. That's it.

Well, maybe there's

one more thing.

I'm about to show you

something that's amazing.

Something that no one else

in the world has seen yet.

Now, Jony, myself

and a small team

have been working really

hard on a secret project,

which is something

I've been known to do

from time to time.

The device I'm about

to introduce to you

is gonna revolutionize

an entire industry.

It's a music playing device.


We'll get to that in a minute.

Because what it represents is

as important as what it is.

It's a tool for the heart.

And when you can

touch someone's heart,

that's limitless.

If I do say so myself,

it's insanely cool.

It's a music player.

It's a thousand songs

in your pocket.

I'd like to introduce you

to the iPod.

Hey, Jobs.

Get up, man. Wake up.

I'm up.

I'm up.

I'm up.


Hey, Daniel.

Hey, what's going on?

Are you reading Be Here Now?

Yeah, it's amazing.

I'm reading that right now.

It's unbelievable.

It's the next level.

Hey, speaking of Be Here,

what happened to you last night?

Where'd you go?

I had to study.

I know, I know.

You know, I'm not dismissing

the value of higher education,

I'm just saying it comes at

the expense of experience.

The system can

only produce the system.

I don't want to be a part of that.

Neither should you.

I agree with you. It takes balls

to drop out like you did.

That's why you should.

I mean...


Might I borrow

you for a moment?

I'll see you in, see you later.


Thank you. Thanks. I hope

I'm not interrupting.

What about your classes?

I'm not a student

anymore, Jack.

Well, you're here,

and you're learning.

Sure sounds like

a student to me.

If you want me gone...

Why would I want

you gone, Steven?

I'm glad that

you're here.

Whether you're

paying or not.

Now, you're always carrying

this notebook around.

You obviously fancy

yourself as an artist.

Why don't you sit in

on some design classes?

No. Well, I like the idea of art' the beauty.

But only in the right context.

Just not as a career. I don't

have the necessary talents.

But aren't you interested in electronics?

What about engineering?

There's a growing market for qualified

technicians. What about that?

I don't want to spend

my parents' money

to get a degree

and become something

as forgettable

as an electrician.

Excuse me, what, a degree is

a waste of time now? So...

For some. For others it offers validation.

Job security.


I'll see you around.

Steven. To be continued.

What are you working on?

Nothing, really. It's homework

for calligraphy class.

It's beautiful.

Yeah, the teacher's

this monk, or something.

A monk?

Yeah. Robert Palladino.

He's totally inspiring.

My name's Julie.

Are you leaving?

Yeah. I have to go.

You want a hit?


Yes, I do.

Can I take a couple?


For my friends.

Well, my friend,

and my girlfriend.

It's so beautiful.

Like a window to the world.

What do you think

it's like in space?


beyond understanding.


Who has a baby,

and then just throws it

away like it's nothing?

You talking about

your birth parents?

Oh, no,


That's bad. Yeah. That's

making me really sad. I...

Sorry that my life

is ruining your high.

It's okay.

I miss you when

you're not around.

I love you, Steve.

I love you.

Space. The endless black deep.

What was it that

that guru used to tell us?

There is no time to waste.

Do you hear that?


There he goes again.

Calligraphy is the artful and

visual expression of communication.

Take Garamond, for example.

A typeface specifically designed

to make the very act of reading

more natural.

Computers are inherently

designed to make your lives easier.

Theoretically there's no limit

to what computers can do.

It is not who you were

at birth that matters

but what you do with

the time you are given.

The moment of

your death is fixed.

Life is but ajourney to

serenity, to its completion.

Be as simple

as you can be.

You'll be astonished

to see how uncomplicated

and happy your

life can become.

I don't even know what I'm

gonna do when I go back home.

What about you?

What are you gonna do when

you get back to The Valley?


Steve? You okay?

No. No, no! No. It's

still black and white.

People want color.

Pong didn't have color.


Let's do something better.

It can't do color.

Says who?

Okay, you refuse

to do anything

that vaguely escapes

your comfort zone.

You're not even my boss.

Well, I damn sure

should be.

Hey, Jobs!

Whafre you doing, Steve?

He's an idiot.

You know, and half

the people around here

don't know how

to design sh*t.

People are complaining

about your behavior.

Okay? And, yeah.

About mine?

And your odor.

Are you showering

like we discussed?

I'm wearing shoes.

You asked me

to wear shoes,

and I've got them on.

That's not part

of the deal, Steve.

You've gotta learn how to

work well with other people.

I'm just trying

to do it right, Al.

I know you are.

Then lei me.

Listen, Steve!

You're good.

You're damn good.

But you're an a**hole.

Well, that...

Hey. Let me finish.

I want you here.

I really do.

Somethings gotta change.
