Fans of Apple celebrated the birthday of the late Steve Jobs on Friday. The iconic business giant died last October after battling pancreatic cancer. He would have turned 57 this year.
To mark the occasion, Q has posted a clip from host Jian Ghomeshi's conversation with Walter Isaacson, whose authorized biography of Jobs, released a few weeks after the Apple co-founder's death, quickly became a bestseller. Isaacson, who had previously written biographies of Einstein and Benjamin Franklin, spoke about something that made Jobs a truly unique talent in the business world.
"There are two sides to Steve Jobs and there are two sides to the late '60s and early '70s," Isaacson said. "There's the dropping acid, rock, hippie side to him, going to India to search for spiritual enlightenment, find his guru. And on the other hand, he's a businesslike electronics geek who wanted to start his own company. He's an entrepreneur. And you have to understand with Steve Jobs that this is what flows together."
