Apple at fortieth: What Steve Jobs Said About Computers in one thousand nine hundred eighty-first

Here'south a #FallbackFriday that brings a rush of nostalgia on Apple's fortieth anniversary.

Steve Jobs and writer David Burnham debated computers on "Nightline" in one thousand nine hundred eighty-first where both men discussed potential privacy concerns raised by the personal computing revolution.

"I think one of the things you really have to see at is you've to go look some kids using these things," Jobs said. "What you discover is distant from something quite harmful. In effect, what you look is an instantaneous reflection of a portion of themselves, the creative portion of themselves being expressed. And it'south just very, very challenging to look these kids using this tool -- and realizing they're going to have these tools for the rest of their lives -- to portray that as something very harmful. It'south actually something quite democratic."

When asked by Ted Koppel if the devices raised concerns for the potential of government snooping, Jobs said he believed the best protection was an informed public.

"I think the best protection against something love that's a very literate public, and in this case, computer literate," he said. "We've already reached approximately every one in 1.000 households in the United States," he said, telling Koppel that no would one day be one to one.
