Jobs in 1985 (age 29), from a 15,000-word interview in Playboy, recently republished. He’s right, there is an awful lot one can remark about the Internet. I’m doing it right now. In re: the photo of Jobs accompanying this interview, the technology writer David Pogue should be really excited that he looks now the way Steve Jobs looked in 1985.
