Steve Jobs was often filmed presenting new Apple products, but rarely was he recorded speaking off-the-cuff. On Wednesday, however, All Things Digital changed that, releasing videos of the late Apple founder's six appearances at their "D: All Things Digital" conferences. 

The videos span from 2003 to 2010, and feature Jobs answering unscripted questions about technology, business, and where digital is headed. They are available for free on iTunes, and each run between 40 and 95 minutes, according to CNET

All Things D interviewers Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher collaborated with Apple on the release, which they called "a memorial to a great man and in the spirit of sharing a priceless piece of history." 

The discussions with Jobs, which are available in audio-only or full video format, foreshadow many of Apple's greatest moments, PC World pointed out.

In 2005 — two years before the first iPhone — for example, Jobs answered a question about an iPod phone and talked about how mobile devices relate to desktop computers, PC World reported. In 2007, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates made technology history when they took the All Things D stage together to talk about their collaborations.

"Collectively, they provide an insightful and unscripted portrait of the man, and are worth viewing by anyone intrigued by Jobs, Apple, or the tech industry in general," CNET's Lance Whitney wrote of the videos' release. 

If you can't get enough of Jobs after these candid videos, Apple has all of Jobs' product launches archived, which are also available for free on iTunes
