Pixar. They made "Toy Story", "Toy Story 2", and "A Bug's Life."

Don't forget, he's also Apple's iCEO.

Ok, so far we have a couple of good answers and a couple of good guesses. We'll start by canceling out the correct answers, and so far we have.....

Question 2: John Sculley was the president of the Pepsi Co! (dadradda)

Question 3: Steve Jobs now lives in the area now popularly known as SilliconValley! good guess (APW!!!)

Question 5: Steve Jobs did recieve a salary of One dollar in 1999!! (dadradda)

Alright folks, we still have 2 unanswered questions and this is where we stand so put your thinking caps on and read carefully.....

Question 1: Apple Computer was founded by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Who Else?

Question 4: Steve Jobs returned to Apple in 1996, what version of the Mac OS was released that summer? dadradda had a pretty good guess but no close enough


remember: ANYONE MAY REPLY

It looks like APW answered question number 1 . Ronald Wayne was the other co founder of Apple computers, along with Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs

Alright everyone....we have still have one unanswered question.


What version of the Mac OS was released in the summer of 1996?

Remember now the answer we're looking for is by actual release date and june of 1996 to be precise. Good luck!!

For the final question, I think we should all watch "Pitates of Silicon Valley" at least five times to get as many small deails about Apple & Co as possible. He might ask somthing about the competitions effect on Apple.

For all we know, he might ask us an essay question in which case we need to answer: What year, day, event, and hour was the first Mac commercial aired, what was the theme, who played the girl, and who played the "voice"?

Seeing as we have no further replies, the credit will be given to the canidate with the closest answer.

So what was the version of the Mac OS released on June 1996?
7.5.3 daddra replying with 7.5.5 (Sept. Release) came the closest.

CONGRADULATIONS DADRADDA!!!! You have won the bonus round!!!

Who will claim the title in the final round? What will the question(s) be? Stay tuned everyone!!! The Final Round in the Steve Jobs Trivia will continue later this week!!



to verify our answer to the OS question you may check Apple's archives here . Just enter 7.5.3 in the top search box to verify release dates according to Apple's web site.

Correction:

Jobs' official title is still iCEO, the i just doesn't stand for intern anymore, it stands for 'internet' or something equally corny and confusing that has to do with the iBook/iMac.

There used to be a game called "You Don't Know Mac" by MacUser at http://www.macdownload.com

It might still be there, but it won't run on my G4 with Mac OS 9
