Go Retro's Retro Hottie of the Month: Steve Jobs

Photo: Rolling Stone Magazine
Sometimes it's fun to just be superficial. I know that Steve Jobs is going to be remembered as a visionary, a genius, and an arrogant SOB but let's face it, before he got sick and wore black turtlenecks non-stop the man was pretty darn good to look at, too. He may seem like an ironic choice for Retro Hottie of the Month but the truth is I do love Apple computers. I first learned the fundamentals of graphic design on the tiny screen of a Macintosh II (using Aldus Paint.) I then studied Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator on Macs and loved every minute of it. Earlier than that, my elementary school's library had an Apple computer that my classmates and I would scramble over each other to play with (it had some game on it that was interactive and sort of like Where in the World in Carmen Sandiego?) So while I've bashed our society's addiction to technology on here before, if it weren't for Apple, I may not be blogging or working in my particular area of marketing today. 

Back to being superficial...was this man yum-worthy, or what? Smart AND hot. A rare combo!

  2. And the tech world really does not have anyone with the "movie star" looks or "rock star" quality. Sorry Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerburg. Steve Jobs was a very unique combination of everything. I am just glad that even though he had such a difficult reputation he proved to be the person to truly help out Pixar until they found their destiny. And that is with Pixar being some of the nicest people out there. So glad he did not "crush" them. I really miss him.
