Apple CEO and Reed dropout gets back on his bike

Posted by on October 29th, 2005 at 12:51 pm

Came across this great quote from Steve Jobs, head of Apple Computer and Reed College dropout.

He was asked by The Independent (a UK newspaper) what was the last piece of technology he acquired – not made by Apple – that really delighted him. After a long pause he said:

“I actually bought a bicycle recently. It’s just … wonderful.”

I like to think his time in the biking utopia of SE Portland had something to do with that. Now, if he would just design a bike that creates as much of a frenzy as his iPods…
