Funny he chooses to come onto his life when things look so grave. I'm thinking he wants a slice of the ol apple myself.

He didn't come out to Steve when Steve was a CEO cause that could look like he wanted money and it would be alot more news worthy
Steve stepped down and it didn't hit the press as hard I think because he was no longer a CEO
But at the same time it's retarded that it took his dad this long to say Hey Son

Call me naive, but I think this guy genuinely wants to know his son. Think about it, Jobs must be in pretty poor health if he had to resign. And this guy learned "in recent years" (see below) that Jobs is his son. Perhaps he thought he had more time? I dunno. Either way, I think it's a genuine extending of the olive branch. Based on how I read it, this guy didn't know Jobs was his kid for a pretty long time. Better late than never, I guess.
Jandali, however, tells the New York Post that he learned only "in recent years" that the son his ex-wife gave up for adoption 56 years ago became the one and only Steve Jobs.

Have you meet Steve's sister?
Because his father had unprotected sex. Because his mother gave him for adoption instead of aborting we have iPhones.

That sure looks like his father.

I dunno, but something about his "it would make ME a happy man" comment rubbed me the wrong way, perfectly consistent with the Father's been a self-centered narcissist, or at least borderline Aspergers syndrome. You know, the whole "what's in it for me?" deal, only focusing on HIS needs, which is exactly the kind of thinking that leads grown men to abandon their offspring, however they rationalize it.
And even though he said Steve should reach out to him, why is this sperm donor running to the New York Post, of all places? You don't think a PRIVATE call to Apple's executive offices, and Job's personal secretary, might be a tad more classy? I suspect he tried, but was rebuffed. Now he's trying to publicly pressure a meeting....
Thankfully, Jobs and his sister were able to make lemonade from lemons, and overcome the problems of their young biological parents; at least bio Mom had the courage and strength to realize she was in over her head, and that their best odds for success were in being raised by adoptive parents (an ultimately smart decision, borne out by the success of Steve and his sis. That's a success story, in anyone's book, however you get there).

This guy is just after money, period! It doesn't take 56 years of dissin' your own kid to realize what you did was wrong. I have dead beat parents myself and this really ticks me off to see, I'm not a Steve fan at all but I seriously hope like someone else said here that he flips the bird to this *******.
Coffee? Yea right...sorry but this really bites!

From reading the full article (some of you might wanna try that) the man sounds like a decent guy. Having his son put up for adoption 56 years ago seemed to have been out of his control, and probably the best thing for the child. He wanted to keep the baby but repeated the wishes of it's mother (who upped and moved across country with the baby without telling anyone). Would it have been better for Steve Jobs to grow up with a single mother who has isolated herself from the childs father and her own family
Also, the article says only in recent years has the man found out the identity of the son given up for adoption, without lack of trying. You can't blame the man for wanting to meet the son he never had a chance to be a father to, before it's too late.
