Steve Jobs was the world’s first Zillionaire at age 29


I was going through my dad’s sock drawer this morning, like I do every Friday, and I came across this old Playboy from February of 1985 featuring an interview with an about-to-be-ousted-from-Apple Steve Jobs.

Apparently at the ripe age of 29 Steve was the world’s first Zillionaire – no small feat, given that those are 1985 dollars (not to mention the fact that a Zillion is technically an imaginary number).

Of course, there’s always the chance that Steve may have been inflating his net worth a bit just to get chicks, as I noticed coincidentally in the issue is also an article entitled the “Art of Being Cocksure” – step 1 of which was “tell women you have a Zillion dollars.

    Is that a fact or a falsely-claimed statement in the magazine? So far, the only person that I know is capable to supersede that is Bill Gates.
