Steve Jobs: "Customer Experience before Technology"

Steve Jobs Insult Response - YouTube"
(WWDC 1997, as a 'new' CEO of Apple, struggling at that time, just before a huge take-off)

"You've got to start with the customer experience
and work backwards to the technology.
You can't start with the technology
and try to figure out where you're going to sell it."

@ PCmag

While there is a contradiction even in this brief video
(engineers did build a great laser printer that can sell)
a clear vision "customers first" helped make it better than HP's, by using PostScript and sharing,
sell it for twice the price, and create a new desktop publishing industry.
