Transcript: Steve Jobs Speaks at MIT Sloan Distinguished Speaker Series

And we try to push the problems where they belong. If it’s our problems, we take full responsibility for them. We own our process.

AUDIENCE: Do you see any possibility of bringing NeXT over to portable Macs? And do you see the future of Macs …

STEVE JOBS: You know, I think Macs are going to continue to grow. It depends on what Apple does. I think certain segments of the Mac market are going to continue to grow. I think certain segments of the Mac market are not going to be targeted for future growth. And I think Macs are good computers to do certain things.

Just like, you know, there’s a lot of things that you can do on DOS when the Mac came out, but there were some new things you just couldn’t. And it would take a long time. And I think it’s the same way with the Mac.
