Per a user report:

Tonight, Disney and Pixar rolled out their big summer flick, \Finding Nemo" about a papa fish on a quest to find his lost son (according to the poster, "Sea It"). But before the lights went down, Steve Jobs was there to introduce PIxar's work.

Preceded by Robert Goulet singing "You've Got A Friend in Me" and escorted to the stage by a chorus line dancer, Jobs spoke about how Pixar was going to realize its goal of releasing one quality picture per year, starting with "Nemo" and followed by "The Incredibles" and "Cars". Then he went on about how Pixar has grossed over $1.7 billion at the box office, and how proud he was of the company. Jobs ended by introducing John Lassetter, the creative guru behind Pixar's success. No word on the long-term future of Disney and Pixars' production deal.

PS - And yes, he wore his trademark black shirt.

Does anyone know if he owns any other kind of shirts?

Very nice to know Pixar is doing so well.

For a animated picture studio they are making out quite well.

Finding Nemo should be quite good and I have seen some leaked footage from the upcoming features and they are also very good. :D

You'd think Steve would have some casual wear for a trip to Vegas...

So has this been linked to the immediate release of a tablet mac yet?

Or maybe the bush administration used it to establish a link between saddam and bin laden?

Although you were joking, the answer is pretty much, "no."

I remember an interview about the subject. He has a closet full of those black turtle necks which were designed for him my a friend who's a fashion designer.

His comment about wearing the same thing everyday was something along the lines of not having to think about what to wear that day.

It looks like Jobs is ripping off Einstein for ideas. That was Einstein's big thing. Why waste precious brain power deciding what to wear every day. Just get a closet of the same thing or similar things and just wear the same thing everyday. If you're crazy like they both are/were then it probably sounds like a great idea. BTW I don't mean crazy to be a bad thing. Remember the Think Different ads.

I believe a couple of years ago he wore a suit to MacWorld Tokyo. Maybe it wasn't a suit, at least a tie and jacket.

Haha, I remember the Intel Sales conference he spoke at. I guess Jobs likes gambling and prostitutes.... just kidding!

I did a google image search on steve jobs and out of the first 20 hits, Jobs was wearing a black turtleneck in 11 of them. The funny thing is, in 4 others, he's wearing a tie.

1999 seems to be the last year where he changed shirts: a white turtleneck at WWDC and white buttoned-down shirt with a grey vest sweater at Seybold.

So, taking this to the logical conclusion, if you never change clothing, you waste no brainpower on vanity, let alone wasting time on bathing.

I've tried this before, during long ago summers as a firefighter/smokejumper, and it is not a pleasant experience, but if this is what it takes for Jobs to achieve performance parity with peecees, then, I say, Steve, get down, get dirty!

Jobs always wears a necktie when he speaks in Japan. 'Why?' you ask. The Japanese highly value formal attire as a sign of professionalism. Businessmen allegedly note the equivalent of 'NN' (for 'no necktie') when listening to an underdressed presenter.

I am a wealth of knowledge.
