13 Things you may not know about Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs’ alleged liver transplant came as a bit of a shock to Apple fans this week. Given that Jobs is one of the most high-profile and rumored-about CEO’s on the interweb, sometimes we may feel we know everything there is to know about the man. However, Steve is like an onion. He’ll make you cry if you cut him. AND he has layers. Many layers. Here are 13 little known facts that you may not be aware of about everyone’s favorite Apple CEO (not including Gil, of course).

#1 Steve’s liver transplant is not his first organ transplant operation. Over the last 400 years Steve has been gradually replacing all his organs as they wear out.

#2 Steve Jobs’ favorite color is a special color that only he can see called “flursch”. According to a 1996 Vanity Fair article, Steve once described flursch as “sort of like how you see purple, except it’s just about as different as you can imagine.”

#3 Steve Jobs CAN believe it’s not butter.

#4 Steve Jobs can divide by zero.

#5 “Steven Paul Jobs” is an anagram for “Elves Put Banjos”. Think about it.

#6 Despite holding a public funeral for Mac OS 9, Steve still runs Classic on his MacBook Pro to play Sid Meier’s Civilization 2.

#7 Steve has been rumored to be romantically linked to Joan Baez and ex-New York Giants quarterback Phil Simms.

#8 Steve’s first fruit-themed computer company, Elderberry Computers, went under in 1975 shortly after Monty Python’s The Holy Grail was released and turned the once proud fruit into a joke.

#9 Contrary to popular belief, there does not appear to be any direct correlation between N2N (the tail number on Steve Jobs’ Gulfstream 5 Jet) and the Los Angeles-based N2N erotic men’s clothing store.

#10 According to scientists who study such things, the “most uncomfortable moment ever recorded” occurred in Cupertino CA, March 18th, 2004 during a 75-minute Steve Jobs tongue-lashing given to a technician who could not get a projector working.

#11 Steve Jobs was originally up for the role or “Neo” in the Matrix movies, but the Wachowski brothers didn’t feel like doing a documentary.

#12 Steve Jobs can pee at a urinal even if flanked on both sides and with a line behind him.

#13 Steve Jobs has cried only once during his life – while watching the movie Sophie’s Choice. It wasn’t the heart-wrenching plot that made Steve tear up, it was reportedly the idea of a person being given “choice” that got to him.

Please add any additional “facts” you know about Steve in the comments.

    The “Next Big Thing”? Steve Jobs new liver is actually the first personal bio-computer with DBA (Direct Brain Access). Steve has been in desperate need of such a device since verbal + typed traditional human communication has been too slow for him –he has the next 20 years of inventions already in his head.
