    I didn't know the king of Apple was born in Green Bay Wisconsin(which is just 100 miles from here). I'll never look at Green Bay the same way again when I go there ever. :eek:

    Steve Jobs was adopted and I believe the location of his real parents or birthplace is unknown.

    He was born in SF...people keep changing the Wikipedia entry back to the incorrect Green Bay listing (though the page is now locked due to vandalism.

    See the talk page on his Wikipedia entry for more detail. There's a great link to a Green Bay newspaper article about his background and another link to a quote by Steve saying he was born in SF.
