Steve Jobs seems to be the topic of discussion (and movies) this season. Interestingly, these movie trailers and documentaries have shown Jobs as a stubborn person. But, Jobs’ life wasn’t all about temper and tensed moments, and had a funnier side as well. Well, ABC News has exclusively obtained footage showing a much warmer and fuzzier side of Jobs.
The video obtained by the news agency was actually shown to Apple employees on the fourth anniversary of Jobs’ death. The video shows Jobs thanking and encouraging the Apple staff, asks them to hug Apple Store clerks, and also relates his management style to The Beatles.
While the camera pans on the audience, you see prominent Apple employees like current CEO Tim Cook, Jonathan Ive, and even Scott Forstall, who was booted out of the company post the Apple Maps fiasco in 2012. In one of the candid moments, Jobs also jokes about his torn jeans, saying how they are as old as he is.
This video has come to light just before Aaron Sorkin’s forthcoming Steve Jobs movie. The movie is scheduled to hit the theaters tomorrow, and was blasted by Cook as being ‘opportunistic’. Another recent documentary Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine too shows Jobs in a bad light focusing on his treatment of co-founder Steve Wozniak, and his daughter Lisa.
