Larry Kenyon: Jobs key to Apple's futureApril 1, 2004 - 03:11 EST By Dennis Sellers - Larry Kenyon, an early Apple employee who contributed to the Macintosh, AppleTalk and Newton architectures, is now at Microsoft and feels that the future of Apple depends a lot on CEO Steve Jobs.
...
Kenyon joined Apple in 1980; the products he has helped bring to market range from Apple II peripheral cards, the first Mac through the Mac II, versions of the Macintosh Finder for AppleShare and MultiFinder, and most of the Newton products.He left Apple at the end of 1996 after working on the Newton team, six years on the Mac, and a couple of years on the Apple II/III and Lisa.In 1996, Kenyon went to WebTV, a start-up at that time.
"I had worked with all three founders at Apple, and was ready for a change," he says."About eight months after that I was working for Microsoft when it acquired WebTV, and have been working on TV products and platforms there ever since.Microsoft is quite a contrast with Apple."
He told MacMinute that he really likes the efforts Apple is making with the iPod and online music.Kenyon says Apple has always been at its best when leading the way with new kinds of software and hardware.Still, he feels that Apple lost an opportunity to utilize all the great software developed for the Newton, "which would have also made a great base for the iPod and other mobile devices."
Kenyon still knows a few people at Apple, but has no official relationship with the company or Jobs.
...
Kenyon says he's "definitely enjoyed talking with many people there who I used to work with at Apple since it was a big part of my life."As for ever returning to Apple, he feels that 16 years is enough for one lifetime.
Kenyon still has lots of Apple technology at home: an iMac, four other retired Macs and, not surprisingly, an assortment of Newtons.As for advice for Apple, he feels the company should continue to work on making computer technology user-friendly.
"There's still a long way to go to make computers easy to use; when the Mac first came out, it was probably at its simplest: you stuck in a floppy with some program, and used it, kind of like playing different DVD's," Kenyon says.
