What Member is Steve Jobs

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
We have the Fake Steve Jobs and now more recently have discovered that actual CEOs do frequent internet forums under a pseudonym . Hell even Dvorak admits to trolling Mac forums.

So I began to wonder, just which forum member is Steve Jobs. I just have to believe he's here and a regular posting member.

My guess.... Ireland.


Who do you think?

No, I don't think Ireland is Steve Jobs. I don't always agree with him in every detail but still respect him as being one of the smarter guys on the forums. He is the type of guy I would like to see working at Apple.

Ah backtomac, I see you're on to me.

Yes I am the fake real Steve Jobs. I thought the double blind of using a boy's name while claiming to be a female but all the time really being His Steveness, would fool you.

Damn you AppleInsiders! You're too smart even to be tricked by the Mercurial One. Curses!

Who seems to be right more often then everyone else. Since Mel is always right, I vote him.

Due to recent developments in mousepad patents, I change my vote from melgross to Ireland.

Steve Jobs could afford to buy his own copy of XP, unless he's a great poker player.

P.S. I'm not sure if I agree that Ireland is Steve Jobs, cause Ireland is both a genius, and a nice guy. I'd love to go out for a drink with him one day.

So true. Although, the endless polling is a bit suspicious. It almost feels like market research.

I think Steve is all those people who keep posting spam. I don't think he likes sites like this because we try to counter his secret ways.

Yeah he is. He's also never conceited or egotistic. I don't think I would like to go out for a drink with him though as he would probably [edited for negative Irish stereotype].

Wait... are you trying to say that SJ is a mean, dumb guy? I don't think that you would appreciate that.

it's going to have the same aluminum case as the macbook pro, the 17 inch model is cancelled and the others will stay and a new 30 inch will go on the market. the new keyboards will be thinner and sexier and much more functional, and you can pick up either the new aluminum keyboard to match your new imac or, you can get the default white keyboard. Santa rosa will be introduced to the imacs, and both the default memory and hard drive will be increased. For more deatails you'll have to wait untill august 14th

Joel Fagin could be Ive, but why would they want to ruin the surprise. Sunilraman is not Jobs cause he posted a picture of himself in the queue for an Apple store in these boards before.

I'd guess that Steve has been here on Appleinsider as long as he has been Apple's CEO. Look for those who have been around that long. I definitely am not SJ and can prove it. I've always supported a Mac mini tower, which has never appeared in Apple's lineup.

While Steve-o may have visited the site, there's no reason for him to have become a member unless he felt it compelling to join-in on the banter in AO.

Over the years, I've made a number of posts that indicate I think Steve is a jerk. If you're so inclined, you can search the forum and see if there are any consistent retorters.

Maybe you're teh Steve. The jerk comments were made to throw us off.

The age could be bogus. However, you have far too many posts to be SJ. So, I believe you.

post #32 of 43
I doubt steve would actually sign up. He would just browse the site for specific threads pointed out to him by those that get paid to look at rumor sites all day. He doesn't have time to just sit around and go through them himself. Hey Steve, I need a job!
post #33 of 43
I also vote that SJ is probably only a lurker and has posted only a few times if ever.

Only five posts since 2001--you'd think he'd get po'd at us more than once a year.

This is a detective job for someone with lots of time on their hands, or lots of paid--or unpaid--assistants. First study the posting patterns of other individuals who participate on forums that deal with themselves (sorry for the poor grammar), then examine all of the screen names for possible associations with Steve, or his interests, and finally look at the contents of the posts by the winnowed group of candidates for any clues. Run it through one of the NSA's supercomputer's (the kind used to ferrit out terrorist connections amid deception), and viola, you've got a list of suspects. in fact, if there's one person oout there who has the interest and ability to get to the bottom of this--it's Steve Jobs. Only, will will be able to trust his results?

I think there's an easier way to make Steve come out of the closet. What was that TV show, "To Tell the Truth"? Steve will have no choice but to admit his screen identitity, to avoid the embarassment of being associated with any number of AI members who claim to be him.

So get in line, and start making those claims to the SJ identity. I for one will pass, mostly because I couldn't deal with the thought of being such a superstar, especially one with an increasingly large middle-aged paunch (been there, done that--the middle-aged paunch thing--and don't want to got back, even in a fantasy). Plus, I rarely say anything nice about Apple or Steve--and I imagine then real steve would at least on average be neutral.

PS One last clue. Given the SEC investigation into the Whole Foods guy's posts, Steve has likely stopped posting. Which is another reason we all need to say we're Steve--we can compare the list of posters to this thread to AI members and narrow the likely culprit down to one of the few who was posting up until the SEC/WF story broke, but now no longer is.

Wilco hasn't posted in a while.

And his comments always had a mean bite to them.
