That doesn't mean anything. I think you'll find they do, it's just that the cheap optics, lighting and bad focus create a slight illusion.

To all of those questioning whether it is real
1) It doesn't really matter
2) Not sure why someone would have to fake a picture of Steve when they could probably go track him down and take a real picture.

Yes I'm sure it is sweltering in northern California in March!

This bothers me. This REALLY bothers me.

Let us suppose this is true.

If so, my reaction would be: Leave Jobs' **FRIGgin** personal life alone. Everyone -- anyone -- deserves that, at a minimum.

Absolutely anything vis-a-vis his role as CEO, CTO, etc of Apple is fair game. But at his kid's baseball game? Give me a FRIGgin break......

Shame on anyone who thinks a story like this is worth more than spit.


Actually, it was his daughter's soccer(football) match.

You know Apple-related news is hard to come by when threads like this get more than 80 replies.

OK. I stand corrected -- not "kid's baseball game," but "daughter's soccer (football) match." Thanks for the clearing that up! (I guess my larger point is moot now).

So yes, Steve is probably using iPhone as his full-time cell phone. And he's probably helping the team tweak the software over the next few months with his suggestions.

I wouldn't be surprised if Jon Ive and a couple of the software managers were doing the same. I know a few of the iPod team members were asked to play around with the original iPod for a month or so before it was released.

That doesn't make the photo authentic, necessarily. But I wouldn't consider it unlikely.

And no, Steve doesn't ALWAYS wear the black turtleneck and jeans. I've seen him several times, and maybe half of those he was dressed that way, and other times he was in some other casual shirt, pants, shorts, sneakers kind of combo. He's never in a suit, that's for sure.

He also doesn't travel with an entourage of any kind. He walks/drives around Palo Alto quite often. And he waits in line, even at the Apple Store on University Avenue, like everyone else.

Arrogant as he may be, he is visably uncomfortable with any kind of "glamor" treatment. He doesn't like being approached by strangers for autographs, photos, or anything like that. People in Palo Alto have learned to just leave him be.

That is, somehow, the kind of of person that I expected him to be! Nice to hear that is, indeed, the case.

Could we have more insane photo forensics, please? I really miss insane photo forensics, since Apple got so tight with security.

Maybe someone could blow up Jobs' head to 5,000,000% and show how the subpixels clearly indicate tinkering? Maybe there's a stray reflection in there somewhere that gives it away? Oh, I know, we could track down the Apple publicity shot that shows Jobs standing in more or less the same position, wearing exactly the same cloths.

At least it could all be happening on an elevator.

Sigh. Good times.

This whole thing is rather invasive, especially because he is so clearly uncomfortable with fame. Even at most keynotes he seems to ignore the adulation and cheering of the crowd, except when he is really excited himself. Compare his style to Phil Schiller's, or worse, Scott Forstall's. So, I'm sure that when he got wind of this he was not too happy and will probably dislike this parent for some time to come.

That said, I think that it is totally plausible that he wears his iconic clothing at games. Assuming that his daughter has school-affiliated sports, then it is quite plausible that he came straight from work. I know that parents at my school did this all the time, since a lot of them, like Steve, have intensive jobs. Plenty of people would be out in the sun on May afternoons in Washington DC in suits, watching their children play.

He's clearly a busy man more interested in doing stuff than being seen. Why aren't we praising this man for doing what a good parent and citizen should do, while not seeking recognition for it, rather than picking apart his idiosyncratic fashion sense or gossiping about what a crazy boss he is? Come on, leave him alone.

That's not Steve Jobs. Sorry. There's too much hair on the front of the guy's head and the shape of the head is wrong. It also looks like the guy in the pic might have a 'stache.



Someone should get the word out to "thane" that when you're taking a picture of a celebrity in a public area, it's OK to snap a straight-on, in-focus shot. As long as you're not obnoxious about it, Steve won't shoot you with a gun. As it is, you have a pic of...well, bupkiss.

Well, firt of all I doubt that he was really there, in person carring an iPhone, because:

#1- Why?
#2- He looks a little more blurred than the rest of the picture and people in it.
#3- People ALWAYS put up crap that on the internet for no aparent reson.
