Steve Jobs as FDR

A never-before-seen short film featuring Steve Jobs comically portraying the late US president Franklin Delano Roosevelt was uncovered by Network World.

According to Network World, the project was designed to motivate Apple's sales team at a 1984 meeting, a broadcast-quality production with a budget of $50,000.

Jobs was an early gold bug and appeared to have little use for government,so I'm hoping he considered this a major spoof.

  1. Have you read his biography? Even though Walter Isaacson didn't exactly said it, I got the sense that Steve Jobs was in the same boat with us, Austrians. I got the idea that he understood the principles of free market quite well. After all, he knew why Apple produced its products in China (and not in the U.S.).
