PBS announced today they’ll be airing “Steve Jobs – One Last Thing” on Wednesday, November 2, 2011 at 10-11 PM ET. It’s part of an entire night of programming dedicated to science and technology exploration. Does it get any better? I seriously doubt it. “One Last Thing” is an inside look at Steve Jobs and the things that made him tick.
The title of this collection of interviews with colleagues and others who knew Steve is obviously playing on the catch phrase we always wanted to hear at the end of a keynote. And it’s appropriate now that Steve has left us. Yet another look at the man who brought us our favorite pieces of technology.
“You tend to get told that the world is the way it is, but life can be much broader once you discover one simple fact; and that is that everything around you that you call life was made up by people no smarter than you … Once you learn that, you’ll never be the same again.” – Steve Jobs
Some of the interviewees include Ronald Wayne (the third co-founder of Apple), Walt Mossberg, Dean Hovey (designer of the original Apple mouse), Robert Palladino (man who Jobs credited with inspiring typography design for the Mac) and many others. But the real treat of the special is a never-before-broadcast interview with Jobs from 1994. Yeah, you’re definitely going to want to tune in, that is, if you can put the biography down long enough.
