Jobs Middle Finger (pic)

in General Discussion edited January 2014
Did anybody else notice "this" when steve was being asked about apples past ventures into servers... from the Xserve presentation...

Considering he doesnt look very happy about the question... when steve adjusts his glasses you can see an obvious attempt to give the guy the finger...

I was still surprised to see him do that...

Did anybody else notice this...?

    A guy is in the middle of asking Steve about WebObjects and previous server initiatives. The camera cuts to Steve while the guy is still talking and Steve is rubbing his eye, adjusts his glasses, and coughs.

    I certainly don't think he was giving the guy "the finger" on purpose.

    Whenever a guitarist plays an open G chord he is giving the audience the finger

    Ya - I did notice this and was thinking to myself does jobs have the balls to give this guy the finger for asking him that question - the way he asked it as well kinda seemed to piss steve off. I think he did do it.

    Someone needs to find a previous clip of SJ adjusting his glasses to see if there's a middle finger glasses adjusting precedent.

    I don't feel like doing it.

    While it's doubtful Jobs gave him the finger on purpose, it was a pretty funny moment. The guy ("Doc Searl"?) was asking Jobs what made him think Xserve would succeed where past Apple servers had failed (or something to that effect). Subconscious reflex? haha.

    He obviously did it on purpose... think about it, when you adjust your glasses (or sunglasses) do you use your middle finger? Probably not, and even if you did, you wouldn't curl your other 3 fingers to your hand while you did it...

    Bloody hilarious!

    GOOD POINT! I wear glasses, and it feels unnatural to curl my fingers.

    HA! HA! <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

    I use my middle finger for stuff all the time, it's the longest after all. It drives my girlfriend crazy to watch me skip through songs in the car.

    Curling the fingers, though, hrmmmm.

    Yeah, I use my middle finger a lot too, especially for my glasses, and I more or less always curl back my index finger (but usually not the pinky and ring fingers)
