back to article Apple's Steve Jobs was a SEX-crazed World War II fighter pilot, says ex

Steve Jobs was a sex-mad bully who believed he was a World War II fighter pilot in a previous life, an ex-girlfriend has claimed. Chrisann Brennan met the soon-to-be Apple co-founder in 1972 and went out with him for five years. She had a ringside seat at the very beginning of Apple's ascent to global domination – and a bedside …

To read more about Steve's sweaty sex life, you can buy Brennan's book

Oh Chrisann Brennan... actually never mind. Steve Jobs had a lot of money but even so he tried to reject his own daughter, so to hell with flaming her for writing the book. If she can profit from it then by all means. The real victim here is Lisa, having to know that her own father tried to reject her.

I won't buy it because I don't care about details and the précis suggests it's going to just make me find a man whose persons I didn't like even more of an arsehole. But she should absolutely go for this, make a few quid - I don't get the feeling he'd have felt squeamish about screwing her over woz-style were the boot on the other foot.

Bring on the X-rated sleaze. Like everyone else I like nothing better than to be appalled and shocked by tawdry revelations of the famous and energetic while hotly denying that to be the case.

Re: Uncontrollable Urge to Pull Steering Wheel Up

Pulling the steering wheel comes from having your expensive sportscar accelerate like a jet, Steve, not from having lived previous lives - you're not that special. Mr. Newton and his laws can tell you all about it as I'm sure you already know, having had your company produce a PDA named after him...

Past lives

Isn't it amazing how 99% of people who claim to remember their past lives lived an exciting life, like a fighter pilot, or princess. Nobody seems to remember a past life as a stableboy or scullery maid.

Or, one of the most likely outcomes if they lived in the past, as someone who died of a childhood disease.

Re: Past lives

Clearly, if you don't remember a past life, it just means it wasn't very memorable.

If you previously spent hundreds of hours in the air, shooting down the Hun for King and country; don't you think that those events might be *sightly* more memorable than shovelling shit in a stable 364 days a year?

Re: Past lives

Well, to be honest, I have the same blessing or curse, however, I seem to remember horror.

I was once driving in the Netherlands and saw Muiderpoort on a sign post, I was instantly sweating in the car, getting emotional and could not understand why ... I had never heard of that train station before ... it is only later, much later that I learned what had happened there.

Now, how do you explain that ? I can't. I do not usually get all that excited by places or train stations ... ;-)

Oh, I am unsure about that. The things I don't enjoy, especially over long periods of time, tend to be very memorable. At least for me anyways. Let me list off a few jobs, customers, co-workers, managers, girlfriends (I wish) and other things I didn't like. If I had to shovel shit for a living with no days off, oh yeah, you just best just avoid pissing me off or getting in my way.

Persecution of Jews

During the Second World War the station functioned as a boarding place for Jews from the collection Dutch Theatre at Westerbork were deported. A plaque on the Oosterspoorplein reminds.

Re: Muiderpoort

It took longer than the usual google, but I think the OP about Muiderpoort is probably referring to this -

http://www.historyplace.com/worldwar2/holocaust/h-dutch.htm

Of course I think past lives are all total garbage and are filed in my brain alongside religion, voodoo, snake oil, tarot, ghosts and honest politicians.

@Raumkraut

You may not remember a particular few minutes shoveling shit the way you might remember a particular few minutes in a hairy dogfight, but you damn sure will remember shoveling shit in general if it is all you did for 12 hours a day of few decades' long miserable existence.

If nothing else the smell of fresh manure should lead to immediate recall of such a past life.

Surely it is possible you had heard the name in the past and didn't recall when. Even if not there are certainly more logical explanations than you recalling it from a past life.

"Who says that hw wasn't a member of the hun who got shot down in that past life?"

Considering the average, young, age of WWII fighter pilots and the date of Jobbies birth, that reincarnated pilot had to have died relatively young. A fair number of them are still around and relatively healthy today.

Odd.

I knew Steve personally, starting in the spring of 1975 (homebrew computer club). He was a neighbor of mine for almost 20 years, in the Johnson Park neighborhood of Palo Alto. I actually liked the guy, despite never using any of his hardware (except a couple NeXT boxen).

Yes, he was an asshole, yes his personal grooming could have used some help in the early years, and yes his personal reality distortion field was massive (still is, apparently!).

But sex-mad? Absolutely not ... he was tech-mad. I never even saw him look at porn. To him, making the hardware work for TheGreatUnwashed[tm] was what was hot & heavy.

Fighter-pilot reincarnation? That's Larry Ellison, not Steve.

In which case, it's a shame that he insisted his company's products should be so grossly overpriced, thus ensuring that the GreatUnwashed[tm] wouldn't ever get to use them.

And speaking as one who's been greatly unwashed for many decades, I'm disturbed to find I'm breaching someone's trademark - any clues on who registered that one? Should I be expecting a large boot at my front door any time soon?
