Yesterday’s post on the birthday of the iPhone got me inspired to look a little deeper into the man behind the magic. Here are a few of the more interesting facts that have been compiled about Steve Jobs.
Fact #1 – Stevie did not graduate from college. In fact, Jobs dropped out after only one semester at Reed College. (hear that ma? told you college was a waste of time.)
Fact #2 – Jobs is a Buddhist. Since his spiritual retreat to India in the 70s, Steve Jobs has practiced Zen (though you might not know it by the way he runs his company).
Fact #3 – Steve Jobs has done—and loved—LSD. Jobs calls his LSD trips “one of the two or three most important things [he has] done in [his] life.” (hear THAT ma?)
Fact #4 – Señor Jobs is not the most philanthropic billionaire. According to CNN Money, Jobs eradicated all of Apple’s corporate charity projects in 1997. These efforts never been revived.
Fact #5 – Jobs’ is kind of a tool. Claiming sterility, Jobs denied paternity of his first child. Lisa Brennen-Jobs was raised on welfare by her single mother until Jobs acknowledged paternity.
Fact #6 – Steve Jobs has a favorite outfit. Jobs’ signature black turtleneck and jeans are displayed below by Mainstreethost’s in-house model.
