During his keynote speech at the Macworld Conference and Expo in January 2007, Jobs professed love for a quote from hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, saying, "There's an old Wayne Gretzky quote that I love. 'I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.' And we've always tried to do that at Apple. Since the very very beginning. And we always will."
