Steve Jobs Files Released by the FBI
Files released by the FBI show that some of Steve Jobs’ close confidants  and associates did not have a favorable opinion of him.
The FBI has made a 191-page document about Jobs public. The file was  created when Jobs was under consideration for a White House appointment  under George H.W. Bush, reports the Washington Post.
Jobs was being considered for the President’s Export Council. He  later was appointed and served May 1990 until the end of Bush’s term.
In the FBI documents, some witnesses told the FBI of Jobs’ drug use.  One man said that Jobs used marijuana and LSD during college.
Some people also told the FBI that Jobs would “twist the truth and  distort reality” to achieve goals. Others called him a “deceptive  individual who is not completely forthright and honest.”
While there were some criticisms of Jobs as lacking a personal life  due to shallowness, of former drug use and of not always being  forthright about his methods of getting jobs done, most people said Jobs  had clear visions and would be able to help any company or the  government achieve its goals.
The documents also contained some humorous anecdotes such as that  Jobs has no close relatives in communist countries, he had a high school  GPA of 2.65 and understood Japanese culture as well as having a “great  deal of contact in dealing with companies in the Orient.”
The FBI report also found that Jobs was the victim of an extortion attempt, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. In 1985 there was a bomb threat against Jobs. An unidentified  man made multiple calls and alleged that he placed devices in homes of  certain people and one million dollars needed to be paid.
The extortionist left a number for the victims to call that was traced back to the man behind the threat.
At the end of the document, Jobs was granted Top Secret security clearance by the Defense Investigative Service.
FBI records can be made public after a person’s death. Jobs’ files  were released following a Freedom of Information Act request by multiple  parties.

I’ve never been a Mac guy, not really, but I had a professor who probably was. Dr. Woody was his name, and he’d play music in the classroom before lectures. The Doobie Brothers, stuff like that. He was the type to pull a student aside and give him special attention, make a powerful observation. He pulled me aside once for about 10 seconds, and I will never forget it.
One day in multimedia class he played a video. It was a one-minute clip, voiced over by Richard Dreyfuss, with tinkling piano and soaring strings, images of towering figures flashing by in black-and-white. Einstein, Dylan, MLK, Henson, Lennon, etc. It’s not clear that the clip is an advertisement until the very end, when the Apple logo appears along with two words: “Think Different.”
I have loved that ad ever since. So has my dear friend and college roommate Brian. We even had “Think Different” posters in our house senior year, not that we did much thinking at all.
After college we became desk jockeys, like seemingly everyone in our generation, if they’re lucky, and we had a hard time with that. It was stifling, and it was then that Brian handed me the piece of paper you see above. I was reminded of what had inspired me years ago, incubated on a college campus. I was reminded to see things differently.
I pinned that paper to my office (cubicle) wall, and it stayed there for the entire six years I worked at AOL. It stays with me now, in a binder on my desk. Though it’s idealistic and meant to sell hardware, it inspires me still.
It was probably written by an ad man, and it emanated from another man who is gone too soon, but the spirit lingers on. It changes the world.

“The primary reasons to buy a computer for your home now are that you want to do some business work at home or you want to run educational software for yourself or your children. If you can’t justify buying a computer for one of those two reasons, the only other possible reason is that you just want to be computer literate. You know there’s something going on, you don’t exactly know what it is, so you want to learn. This will change: Computers will be essential in most homes.” (via Playboy Interview: Steven Jobs (1985))
