    Steve Jobs loved to drive fast, and even late in his life, it wasn’t an uncommon sight to see him zooming down the highway at breakneck speeds to the Cupertino campus. Back in 1979, though, Stephen Stapleton got a joyride that he would always remember from Jobs… all in a breakneck search for Woz!

    In 2001, my then 11-year-old son and I received free tickets to a screening of Pixar’s “Monsters, Inc.” We showed up to a packed theater and just as the lights went down on the test audience, I turned to see Steve Jobs sit down. After the movie, we made a beeline to meet him, but he graciously referred us to the director. “You don’t understand, Mr. Jobs,” I said, “our last name is Wozniak.”

    At that, his eyes widened, and he laughed with my son, who knew well the story of Steve Wozniak (no relation) being Apple’s co-founder. “I’ll tell the Woz there’s another branch of the family in Nevada,” Jobs joked, and gladly signed an autograph for my beaming son and shook my hand. I’ll never forget how his demeanor changed — a regular guy for a few moments. The world will miss his genius.

    (CBS News)  Steve Jobs' biological father had hoped to one day reunite with the son that he had never known. It was a meeting that would not come to pass.

    On Wednesday, the 80-year-old Abdel-Fattah Jandali, a retired professor of political science, declined comment after Apple announced that Jobs had died. But in an August interview with Britain's Sun newspaper, Jandali expressed regret at having had no contact with Jobs over the years. He and his ex-wife were unmarried when they had a boy. The baby was later adopted by Paul and Clara Jobs, and named Steve. But in the interview, Jandali said he would have done things "entirely differently" if he could live his life again.

    The first computer my parents ever bought me was an Apple Macintosh Classic. I wrote one of my first stories on that computer. At 12-years-old it was my first introduction into a world Steve Jobs helped create.

    'We've lost something we won't get back. The way I see it, though, the way people love products he put so much into creating means he brought a lot of life to the world.'
