Vintage Footage from His First TV Appearance Shows Steve Jobs Wasn’t Always Quite the Showman

Apple legend has it that Steve Jobs somehow metamorphosed from a scraggly Atari employee into an uber-confident silver-tongued pitchman who led Apple straight to glory, charming everyone in his path. But this early footage of Jobs right before his first TV interview shows that even he had his uncertain Smallville-like phase before attaining demigod status. Upon being told he’d be on live TV in 30 minutes: “you need to tell me where the restroom is actually because I’m definitely ill and ready to throw up at any moment.”
