This interview caught Steve Jobs at an interesting point in his career in 1996, one year before he would return as CEO of Apple. After co-founding Apple with Steve Wozniak in the 1970s, he was pushed out of Apple in 1985. Terry Gross asks him about the founding of Apple, and he tells the tale of its humble origins with Wozniak. In 1996, he was lamenting the failure of NeXT computer, but also touting the success of Pixar, which he was chairman of. Pixar had just released the first entirely computer-animated feature film, Toy Story (1995), which was a huge success. In this interview, Jobs talks a lot about the importance of the graphical user interface, which he emphasized in his creation of Apple. He'd return to Apple in a year with an emphasis on design for products like the iMac, the iPod, the iPad, and eventually the ubiquitous iPhone before his untimely death at 56 in 2011.
