This interview of Steve Jobs is from 2008, makes for superb read given we have seen app store revolution -‘The Mobile Industry’s Never Seen Anything Like This’: An Interview With Steve Jobs at the App Store’s Launch – Link here – 2 paras that caught my attention
WINGFIELD: Can you talk at all about what you see for the coming year in terms of new apps? Do you have a number of apps that you expect to be up on the App Store by a particular date?
JOBS: I would not trust any of our predictions because reality has so far exceeded them by such a great degree that we’ve been reduced to spectators just like you, watching this amazing phenomenon and just doing our best to try to help everybody get their apps done and get them on the store.
JOBS: I think there are a lot of people and I’m one of them who believe that mobile’s going to get quite serious because there are things you can do…Obviously, mobile’s with you all the time, but there’s services you can provide with mobile that obviously are not relevant on a desktop, such as location-based services integrated into your application.

Real World vs. Book Knowledge – Link here – last para is something that I always thought of and probably the reason why I started this blog, it says “Why would an investor read about medicine? Or watch a military history documentary? Or study evolution? Not for the specific academic facts of those fields. No use there. But expanding the boundaries of what you read and think about offers a glimpse into to how people operate in the real world. How people respond to incentives, think about risk, and deal with surprises. Real-world stuff that’s often hard to quantify into an academic formula or argument, but helps you better understand how people behave in the wild.”
