FBI releases Steve Jobs’ background check file

The Federal Bureau of Investigation has released the late Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Jobs’ background check information to the public.

But what is the importance of this?

Perhaps, this FBI file will remind us, moreover prove to us that people even the ones on the pedestal are just like everybody else.

Jobs’ background investigation report was compiled in 1991 after former U.S. President George H.W. Bush recommended his appointment to the President’s Export Council.

The 191-page file consists of several interviews from Jobs’ friends and family members and co-workers.

Apple Inc.’s late top honcho said he had not used any illegal drugs but experimented while in high school and college with marijuana and some hallucinogens like hashish and LSD or lysergic acid.

The report also says that Jobs’ was never jailed, but had been involved in several lawsuits.

Some of his people with NeXT Computer who he was working for at the time of the compilation described him as strongwilled, hardworking and even as a genius.

Several of the interviewees said that Jobs’ will distort the truth to achieve his goals.

Some said that he had a total makeover of his philosophy in life after participating in an Indian mysticism and religion.

Jobs died of pancreatic cancer on October 5 last year.
