Download Demand for Steve Jobs at D Podcasts Strong
Apple co-founder Steve Jobs was a frequent guest at our annual D: All Things Digital conference, where he appeared onstage six times between 2003 and 2010. On May 30 we released audio and video podcasts of those legendary appearances on Apple’s iTunes Store.
And they’ve generated a lot of interest.
Though Apple declined to provide an official download number, sources in position to know tell AllThingsD that in just under a month downloads of the “Steve Jobs at D: All Things Digital” podcasts have hit the “low millions.”
Which is nice to hear. Because these interviews offer a fascinating, unscripted and unadorned portrait of someone who was a rare and transformative force in technology. And they really should be seen by more people.
The Jobs at D interviews — all six, including a wonderful joint appearance with Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates — are well worth watching. So if you follow Apple and you’ve not yet seen them, take some time and watch a few.
Below, a brief sampling of Jobs’s appearances at D to give you a taste of the longer videos available on iTunes.
