Almost twenty years ago, the Federal Bureau of Investigations did a thorough profile about Steve Jobs’ life in 1991. At the time George H.W. Bush considered Apple co-founder, then exiled from his own company, for a position in President’s Export Council. Steve Jobs was supposed to offer advice on foreign trade. Now, more than twenty years later, the bureau released the background investigation report to the public.
The report about the late Steve Jobs life was quite comprehensive and in about 200 pages it contains information collected from governmental agencies, police departments, hospitals, even churches and friends and family as well contributed to the detailed report. Apparently, nothing escaped the prying eye of the investigators. Steve Jobs’ indiscretions from the early years like drug use raised some concern. Also his lack of support for his child, the oldest daughter Lisa, was brought to the president’s attention.
In addition, the report reveals some long forgotten incidents like the 1985 bomb threat against Steve Jobs. Apparently, this was an attempt to extort Apple and Steve Jobs and the report dedicates three pages (184 – 184) to the incident.
The public, already knows many of the events and facts that are in the FBI investigation report, specially after Walter Isaacson published his biography on Steve Jobs, soon after Apple co-founder died. However, the legend of the man who changed the tech world completely and reshaped the public’s expectation from the everyday gadgets grows constantly.
