Steve’s favorite vintage technology:
“My earliest memory with technology is playing Pong on our big tube TV. But my favorite was probably listening to my jambox, waiting for my favorite songs to play on the radio so that I could record them on a cassette tape.”
Steve’s favorite current technology:
“It’s still listening to music! I went from recording on the jambox to using a CD player, to downloading Napster, to using MP3 players and now to streaming music in every room in my house.”
