Steve Jobs: The Entire D5 Interview With Walt Mossberg

jobs

Here is the entire interview Steve Jobs did with Walt Mossberg on May 30 at D5 in Carlsbad, Calif. For those who have not seen the Apple CEO in action, this is a good opportunity.

Among the wide range of topics: the iPhone, of course, and Jobs talked a lot about it; Apple growth since the Intel transition; the iPod; whether Apple should drop Computer from its corporate name, given all its popular noncomputer products; and a major dig at Microsoft, wherein Jobs called the Windows operating system “hell” and Apple’s popular iTunes software on Windows “a glass of ice water.”

There is also a demo of new AppleTV features, including the ability to access YouTube with expected goofy videos such as a human slingshot. Also, Jobs said he reads the Fake Steve Jobs blog, but–surprise–does not write it.

If you want to also read Walt’s recent review of the iPhone, here is the link, a picture gallery and also a more recent text Q&A with Jobs by Walt.

Here’s the video, which is 67 minutes long:
