Steve Jobs, 1980"Right now, if you buy a computer system and you want to solveone of your problems, we immediately throw a big problem right inthe middle of you and your problem which is learning how to usethe computer. A substantial problem to overcome. Once youovercome that, its a phenomenal tool. But there is a barrier ofhaving to overcome that problem.What were trying to do … is to remove that barrier so thatsomeone can buy a computer system who knows nothing about itand directly attack their problem without learning how to program theircomputer.Our whole company, our whole philosophical base, is founded onone principle. That principle is that there is something veryspecial and very historically different that takes place when youhave one computer and one person. Very different than if you haveten people and one computer."
