    Default Inside The Steve Jobs FBI File


    On Thursday, the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation publicly released, albeit it with appropriate omissions and abridgements, the FBI file on late Apple co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs.

    The nearly 200-page file doesn't reveal any shocking truths that would have made the Walter Isaacson bio a better read, but the previously concealed file does note that Jobs was once considered for a presidential appointment by the White House twenty years ago, during the administration of George H.W. Bush.

    Jobs was considered for appointment but never installed on President Bush's Export Council. In light of the consideration, however, Jobs underwent a thorough background check and investigation commissioned by the White House.

    "Often the agents only interview employers and people who are suggested by the candidate," file author John Cook wrote. "It's obviously unclear who these quoted folks are, but if they were among the people Jobs referred the agents to, then he didn't know his friends very well."

    What Cook meant by that observation is that many of Jobs' "friends" had less than flattering comments to make about the late Apple chief. Numerous individuals whose identities were removed from today's publication referred to Jobs as "deceptive" and being of "questionable" morals.

    "Mr. Jobs has integrity," one subject was quoted as saying, "as long as he gets his way."

    I think the point though is that he lied on his application. In FBI eyes, if he lied there, where else did he lie?

    Jobs was a jerk. No news there.
    I always thought the term "early adopter" (regarding tech) was a bit snooty. So, I'll go ahead and call myself an early adopter, cuz I'm feeling a bit snooty.
