It is amazing to witness how the passion for engineering has continued in the great man into the ripe old age. Certainly, he should have been in love with the work he did day in and day out. On his predictions about future of technology, I agree that notebooks are on the way out. It got to be mobile.

It is really great to listen to people who invented technologies. Not just invented but also worked on it to be used by all the people across the world. These guys in communications will be no less than a newton in physics.

Jacobs is a giant in the industry to be sure. I find his passion for the industry and technology at his age to be a great benefit for him (and not necessarily monetarily) and an inspiration to others entering the same stage in life. Retirement is great if you can do what you want to do, whether that involves being completely out of the industry or not. And if it can be done while contributing to the betterment of society, so much the better.
