At the D: All Things Digital confab, Steve Jobs said the day is coming when only one out of every few people will need a traditional computer. “PCs are going to be like trucks,” Jobs said. “They’re still going to be around.” However, he said, only “one out of x people will need them.” Jobs said advances in chips and software will allow tablet devices like iPad to do tasks that today are really only suited for a traditional computer, things like video editing & graphic arts work.
When pressed, Jobs also opened up a bit on the story behind Apple’s dispute with Gizmodo over lost iPhone, which Jobs said may well have been stolen. “There’s a debate of whether it was left in a bar or stolen out of his bag,” Jobs said.
Jobs also spoke on a range of other topics, including his thoughts on AT&T, Adobe and Flash, and Apple’s relationship with Google, “They decided to compete with us, and they’re,” Jobs said, adding that he was referring to phone business primarily. As for Chrome OS, he said, “Chrome isn’t really baked yet.” The competition with Google, he said, was launched by Google, not Apple.
And he even shared a bit on what daily life is like for him and the rest of the team at Apple.
