With the first anniversary of Steve Jobs’ death is this Friday, a collection of untold stories about the Apple co-founder have been compiled by Forbes.
The best of the bunch comes from Randy Adams, a former Apple and NeXT employee.
One day Jobs rushed over to Adams’ cubicle and told him they had to move the cars.
“I said, ‘Why?,’ and he said, ‘Randy, we have to hide the Porsches. Ross Perot is coming by and thinking of investing in the company, and we don’t want him to think we have a lot of money.’” They moved the cars around to the back of NeXT’s offices in Palo Alto, Calif. and Perot invested $20 million in the company in 1987 and took a seat on the board.
