Steve Jobs was one of the world’s greatest visionaries. He could spot trends before anyone else saw them coming and was consistent in making correct assumptions about how people think. He would go against everyone around him if he thought he was right about something and while he occasionally got it wrong, most of the time he was spot on. He didn’t believe in using focus groups to develop products. He felt that people didn’t know what they wanted. He has his fair share of critics but it’s hard to argue when Steve ended up building the most valuable company in history. If you are interested in the life of Steve Jobs, you should definitely read Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacson.
We came across an interesting article showing what is believed to be a yacht that was designed by Steve, for his own personal use. Sadly he passed away before it was completed.
As you can imagine, it’s incredibly classy and minimalistic… and features a wheelhouse filled with 27″ iMacs.
