Never trust a computer you can't throw out a window.
Wherever smart people work, doors are unlocked.
My goal wasn't to make a ton of money. It was to build good computers.
All the best people in life seem to like LINUX.
I worked with such concentration and focus and I had hundreds of obscure engineering or programming things in my head. I was just real exceptional in that way.
My goal wasn't to make a ton of money. It was to build good computers. I only started the company when I realized I could be an engineer forever.
Your first projects aren't the greatest things in the world, and they may have no money value, they may go nowhere, but that is how you learn - you put so much effort into making something right if it is for yourself.
What I was proud of was that I used very few parts to build a computer that could actually speak words on a screen and type words on a keyboard and run a programming language that could play games. And I did all this myself.
There are good things I see on Samsung phones that I wish were in my iPhone. I wish Apple would use them and could use them, and I don't know if Samsung would stop us.
In the end, I hope there's a little note somewhere that says I designed a good computer.
Everything we did we were setting the tone for the world.
It's just not right that so many things don't work when they should. I don't think that will change for a long time.
Steve Jobs didn't really set the direction of my Apple I and Apple II designs but he did the more important part of turning them into a product that would change the world. I don't deny that.
I had a TV set and a typewriter and that made me think a computer should be laid out like a typewriter with a video screen.
I want the entire smartphone, the entire Internet, on my wrist.
Every dream I've ever had in life has come true ten times over.
I want to be able to speak with errors in my wording, errors in my grammar. When you type things into Google search, it corrects your words. With speech, I want it to be general enough, smart enough, to know 'No, he couldn't have meant these words that I think he said. He must have really meant something similar.'
A lot of hacking is playing with other people, you know, getting them to do strange things.
Teachers started recognizing me and praising me for being smart in science and that made me want to be even smarter in science!
When I have spare time, I catch up on things I've had to postpone due to lack of time.
