Video: Steve Jobs on Computer Efficiency

Steve Jobs was a dynamic and visionary leader who understood the value of efficiency. He helped to make personal computers the "bicycle for the mind". Jobs said that the computer is an efficient vehicle for the mind just as the advanced bicycle is an efficient vehicle for human locomotion. According to the chart employed by Jobs in this video, a conventional bicycle is capable of about 40 MPH, and an HPV is theoretically capable of more than double that at about 80 MPH, (Current record is 83.3 MPH). The crux is that the efficiency of computers has assisted many millions of people. This notion of efficiency applies across the board. We need to become more efficient (and thus more productive) in every facet of human life.
