Steve Jobs' Thoughts on Web and eCommerce in 1996

A new video from 1996 showing Steve Jobs talking about the Web and eCommerce has recently appeared on the Internet. There are many things former Apple CEO predicted correctly, for example, the role of eCommerce and its development in the second millennium. However, Jobs didn’t think that we would use the Web as a source of information and that was his main mistake.

The short video is available below. Take a look and tell me what you think about it in the comments section below this post.

Even a man as visionary as Steve Jobs is going to have his hits and misses. In a bunch of interviews given around 1995 and 1996, Jobs was already predicting the importance of ecommerce.


He was right about the information overload part, but didn’t predict how using the web as an information source could enable us to cut through to the precise information we need.

Can’t wait to see how the Internet develops in the next few years. I bet we’ll become a part of something incredible.
