And yet Syrian pride doesn't stop him from using his biological connection to this famous person to get 15 minutes of fame by name dropping etc.
I won't be shocked if Steve doesn't pick up the phone first.
I don't see what is so sad about it at all. He allowed his son to be adopted and apparently didn't put up a fight. He allowed someone else's racism to control the situation. He has gone 56 years in another life with another family etc. He doesn't know Steve, Steve doesn't know him. Steve has wonderful loving parents that raised him, what does it matter if Steve never has coffee with this DNA donor.
People who put up their kids for adoption are many miles above those that just toss a kid in the trash. Trashers are too worried about themselves, their lives, their rep etc to put value on any life but their own. Thus the trash can.
People who adopt might be worked about their rep etc but they still have some notion that all life is valuable.
He could have gotten the number. Called Apple Corp any time in the last how many years and left his number and asked Steve to call him
And regardless, the guy said he wouldn't make the first move because he feels to do so would come off like he was chasing money.
Only by his pride, which wouldn't let him marry the mother when her father was all 'hell no'. If he had put his unborn child before himself, he might have gone to the girl and convinced her to marry him anyway.
Then again, this 'gentleman' apparently walked out on his wife and daughter a few years later. Which if true loses him a lot of sympathy points.
And when exactly did he say that. Full quote with citation please. Otherwise you are just putting potentially 100% erroneous words and feelings in Steve's mouth.
This makes me laugh off my ass off. Apple Computers could still have happened because it came from Steve being curious about computers. Something that could have happened even if his name was Sargon Jandali and not Steve Jobs. It might not have looked exactly the same but it still could have happened. Who knows, maybe Sargon Jandali wouldn't have gotten kicked to the curb by the rest of the company and we might have had the iPhone 5 years earlier than we got it.
