Rare Steve Jobs Videos

From deep in the YouTube archives, some vintage video of Steve Jobs.

The first is a behind-the-scenes clip of him prepping for a TV interview in 1979, at age 24. “Look, I’m on television!”

And here, via Harry McCracken, is a present from Jobs’s co-workers on his 30th birthday in 1985, which includes lots of images most people haven’t seen. Among the highlights: Jobs with jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald, and the Apple co-founder dressed, for some reason, as FDR.

Thanks to reader Richard Raucci for flagging these down.
