LOS ANGELES, June 30 (Reuters) - The Walt Disney Co. board of directors has modified its compensation policy to exclude director Steve Jobs from receiving compensation for serving on the board, Disney said in a securities filing on Friday.

The board said it approved the change on Wednesday at Jobs' request. Jobs, who is chief executive of Apple Computer Inc. , joined the Disney board in May, after trading his majority stake in Pixar Animation Studios Inc. for Disney stock.

Jobs, as chief executive of Apple, maker of the Macintosh computer and the iPod digital music player, has for years taken an annual salary of $1.

He must get it in bulk from one of those massive American supermarkets. Somewhere in Cupertino is a supermarket that sells black turtlenecks, jeans and sandals in boxes of 144.

He just walks in says, "I'll have a gross of those, those and those" but only every twenty years when he's saved enough of his one dollar paycheques to pay for it.

According to Steve's Outfit.com (http://www.stevesoutfit.com),
- His turtleneck costs $199
- His jeans cost $138
- His socks cost $29
- And his shoes cost $130

For a grand total of a $496 outfit.

And that doesn't even include his diamond-studded boxers! ;)
