You can buy Steve Jobs’ bathrobe, NeXT ID badge, leather jacket he wore when flipping off IBM, and more

“What do you get for the Apple fan who has everything? How about Steve Jobs’ bathrobe and electric razors?” Stephanie Mlot reports for PC Magazine. “Julien’s Live, a ‘premier’ high-profile celebrity and entertainment auction house, is hawking more than 30 items from the late Apple co-founder’s wardrobe.”

“From the vault of the Jackling House — a California mansion where Jobs lived in the mid-1980s — a selection of the entrepreneur’s clothes and accessories is available for upwards of $4,000,” Mlot reports. “Though, with 21 auction days remaining, those prices are likely to increase.”

“The 32-item lot is filled with middling items,” Mlot reports “There are, however, a few hidden gems, including the man’s portable Sony CD player (current bid: $200), black Seiko watch (current bid: $1,500), and leather jacket—worn in the famous Jobs-gives-IBM-the-finger photo (current bid: $4,000).”

  1. “My favorite things in life don’t cost any money. I end up not buying a lot of things. Because I find them ridiculous. It’s really clear to me that the most precious resource we all have is time. Occasionally, I spend a little money to save myself a hassle, which means time. And that’s the extent of it.”

      Disposable Identity

            1. botvinnik is not a troll. He is a gadfly. There is a difference.

              A troll is an internet pestilence, a type of parasite feasting on the general discomfort of others. Some are paid to do so. A gadfly is a provocateur, promoting a personal or political agenda, and requires no wages beyond the satisfaction of shaking up the perceptions of others. Both are widely despised, but only gadflies possess a moral basis. Trolls are squalid basement dwellers, hollow and hopeless thralls of their unprincipled employers, chiefly located in Korea these days.

  2. RE: The bow tie from the intro of the Mac. . . look again at Lot #797 Steve Jobs Bow Tie. It’s brown with polka dots and looks exactly like the one in the video. Adjust for bad color in the video, and I think it is the SAME TIE!

  3. Botvinnik has a trying disposition at times, but for the most part, he thinks and says, like it or not. My own military training means simply that whatever he utters, he has the right to do so, and I shall defend that right.
