Link: 12 Things you may not know about Steve Jobs
Description:: Steve Jobs’ alleged liver transplant came as a bit of a shock to Apple fans this week. Given that Jobs is one of the most high-profile and rumored-about CEO’s on the interweb, sometimes we may feel we know everything there is to know about the man. However, Steve is like an onion. He’ll make you cry if you cut him. AND he has layers. Many layers. Here are 12 little known facts that you may not be aware of about everyone’s favorite Apple CEO (not including Gil, of course)

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

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:
Quote:
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]

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."
