Steve Jobs spotted chatting on iPhone at kids sporting event?

“A photo that has recently cropped up on an image sharing website appears to show Apple chief executive Steve Jobs holding an iPhone conversation during a recent youth sporting event in California,” AppleInsider reports.

“Admittedly, the photo tests the boundaries of what could be considered ‘news’ and is also difficult to authenticate due to a slight motion blur. Nevertheless, it does appear to show the Apple co-founder, clad in his trademark blue jeans and black turtleneck, plugged into some form of electronics device,” AppleInsider reports.

“‘Yes, the photo is for real, and yes it is an iPhone that he was talking on, or at least it was the same size and shape,’ wrote the photographer, who goes by the tag name ‘thane’ on image sharing website, Flickr. ‘He took it out of his pocket to make calls using the touchscreen,'” AppleInsider reports.

It would be more newsworthy if Jobs wasn’t using an iPhone.

  1. ummm..ok, so where’s the iphone? — to the photographer, can I please have my last 2 minutes of my life back…and the next time you want to take a photo and be a real paprazzo, simply get your fat ass up and walk right up and snap that photo! YOU WUSS!!!

  2. Ummm . . . can someone explain to me how a guy worth more than a BILLION dollars just walks around and goes to “youth sporting events” without personal protection?

    While dressed in the same thing he’s almost always seen in when in public?

  3. “… Apple co-founder, clad in his trademark blue jeans and black turtleneck…”

    Please, all… get it right. it is a black “MOCK” turtleneck. A turtleneck goes way up and folds back down. The mock turtleneck is an extended crew neck and much more hip.

  4. Obvious fake.

    If nothing else, WHY would any responsible CEO take a near-priceless prototype product to a kiddie sports event? Why risk having it get lost, broke, or stolen?

    Seems to me if you were gonna show something off, you’d do it someplace where you knew you’d be seen. A chance-spotting at an obscure event is not that place.
