You Can Buy This Handwritten Note by 19-Year-Old Steve Jobs At An Auction
May 28, 2012 11:47
Everything Steve Jobs is getting auctioned off. This time, Sotheby's is auctioning a piece of Apple history: an engineering memo penned by Steve Jobs before Apple even existed.
The note was stamped with Steve's home address and a Buddhist mantra - "gate gate paragate parasangate bodhi svahdl"—dates back to his tenure at Atari.
The year was 1974, and Jobs was relegated to a night shift so that nobody would have to hear or smell him. Jobs hadn't thought of Apple yet, but he was only a couple years away from the start of a change in the world. If you've got ten grand or so to make an early bid, have at it—though it'll probably take a hell of a lot more than that to take the thing home. [Sotheby's]
