Hey Mac users young and old,
me and a friend are doing a school project on Steve Jobs. Just wondering if anyone knows any really unusual or cool facts that will keep the class interested.

Thanks guys/gals,
Fredman

Ha ha haaa!
He has a closet full of nothing but pairs of blue jeans and black turtlenecks, modeled after Ernest P. Worrel and Inspector Gadget. :D Sorry, I couldn't resist...

P.S. "Me and a friend..." Don't let your teacher catch you saying that! ;)

Jobs??

Unless your friends are Mac geeks, I doubt they'll find anything Jobs did exciting, but chances are you can make-up some really obscure fact about him and find some source on the web to back ou up ;). But, good luck on your project Fredman.

behind you
I got one

I believe steve (hehe...rhyme) is the lowest paid CEO there is, with his salary being $1 a year. He does have huge stock options and lots of company stuff and tons of money from other endeavors such as Apple(first time round) NeXT, and Pixar. Thats a cool fact too...everyone knows Pixar but noone knows its his company.

Correct me if I am wrong with any of this info.

Right on

Right on teabags!! You'd never know Jobs owned Pixar with the poor quality "ads" they produces a little while back. Sure they were cute but "Blech!" was that some kind of joke?? Come on Steve I want a real iMac ad!

You are in SOOOOO much luck. I just finished typing a two page report on him. Lots of interesting facts. Did you know he did drugs, and was a college dropout?:p

During his senior year he unfurled a pot leaf banner over his high school. That should keep their attention.

The evil Apple EXC who nearly killed apple?
His book was a joke. He somehow forgets to mention all the money that Apple lost and sees himself as being betrayed by Jobs. He seems to think he did a good job.
