A video obtained exclusively by ABC News today aims to showcase the „softer side“ of Steve Jobs, with the former Apple CEO addressing an assembly of Apple employees the day before the release of the original iPhone in 2007.
During the brief clips shared by ABC News, Jobs urges the company’s employees to go in to an Apple Store and „just give one of the Apple retail store employees a hug,“ discusses his theory of corporate management, and debunks the history to his famous ripped jeans.
The footage was shared with Apple’s employees yesterday to mark the fourth anniversary of Jobs’ death on October 5, 2011. A handful of well-known Apple executives put together some personal essays in memory of the Apple co-founder, including current Apple CEO Tim Cook, calling him „brilliant“ and with „a great sense of humor.“
A lot of Jobs’ past has been resurfacing recently alongside the release of a handful of films chronicling his life, including Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine and the upcoming Aaron Sorkin-penned Steve Jobs movie. A few of Jobs’ supporters aren’t backing many of these interpretations of him, including his widow Laurene Powell Jobs, who tried to cease production on the Sorkin script multiple times.
