Hahaha. Those were pretty funny. I wonder what would happen if Steve Jobs and Chuck Norris were to meet?!

#1 Steve’s liver transplant is not his first organ transplant operation. Over the last 400 years Steve has been gradually replacing all his organs as they wear out.

#6 Despite holding a public funeral for Mac OS 9, Steve still runs Classic on his MacBook Pro to play Sid Meier’s Civilization 2.

That cracked me up as at school i play that on the emac's they have os9 installed., and yes os9 still lives in my house

I must admit that the Sophie's Choice one did actually make me laugh out loud.

+1, I guess I was naive in thinking it would have been true facts about Steve. ;)

Okay, ignoring the rest, number six isn't even possible.

Okay, NONE are possible, but OF them, the most plausible sounding is six, and it isn't possible.

If this were real it would've included this nice little nugget from wikipedia: Atari had offered US$100 for each chip that was reduced in the machine. Jobs had little interest or knowledge in circuit board design and made a deal with Wozniak to split the bonus evenly between them if Wozniak could minimize the number of chips. Much to the amazement of Atari, Wozniak reduced the number of chips by 50, a design so tight that it was impossible to reproduce on an assembly line. At the time, Jobs told Wozniak that Atari had only given them $600 (instead of the actual $5000) and that Wozniak's share was thus $300.[19][20][21][22][23][24]

Worth a few chuckles :D

I think #13 is hilarious.

"Steve Jobs has cried only once during his life - while watching the movie Sophie’s Choice. It wasn’t the heart-wrenching plot that made Steve tear up, it was reportedly the idea of a person being given “choice” that got to him."
