  3. 3. When they made Breakout for Atari, Jobs told Wozniak they'll get $700. In reality, Jobs was paid $5,000 for the job, and kept $4,650 for himself. You could say he was a jerk.

  6. 6. But also that they were good friends. Bill Gates and Steve Jobs occasionally went on "double dates" with their women of the moment.

  8. 8. You could say he was a hero for many. The Steve Jobs biography is one of the top 3 most highlighted Kindle books, next to The Bible and The Hunger Games.
