Steve Capps is a computer programmer and engineer who is best known for his work on the Apple Inc. Macintosh computer and Newton OS during the 1980s and 1990s. He started working at the Xerox Corporation while still a computer science student at the Rochester Institute of Technology. In 1981, Capps started working for Apple on the Lisa project and he continued his work on the Macintosh, principally writing the Finder and Macintosh system utilities.

During a break in 1986, he wrote three music programs including Jam Session, SoundEdit, and Super Studio Session; SoundEdit was eventually sold to Macromedia. From 1987 to 1996, he was the chief architect and Apple Fellow for the Newton, where he led the specification and development of the user interface of Newton, shepherded the team of software developers, and wrote many portions of the built-in application software. From 1996 until 2001, he was a user interface architect at Microsoft. His early work at Microsoft resulted in the Internet Explorer Search, History, and Favorites panes. He was also a co-founder of the MSN Explorer project.


"As I was looking for Info about the Newton Message Pads,
I stumble upon a Blog at which had an article about Steve Capps which I've always admired ever since I read about him when I read a book about the Apple company,

This is a great interview, as he speaks a lot about the Macintosh, the Alice Game and the newton
and if you are a Mac Fan, you'll enjoy it,"

The interviews I think were made this year 2009

and as a plus, these guys also interview Maedi, Yes!, from Macgarden,
so I hope Maedi don't mind, but if he does, I'll take the link down,
(BTW, Nice voice Maedi!)


The files are in .M4a format and QuickTime has no problem dealing with this,
