Photo of the Day: Steve Jobs Giving His Middle Finger To IBM, 1983


This rare photograph of Steve Jobs demonstrates the Apple co-founder’s infamous rebellious spirit as he “flips the bird” outside an IBM building in New York City.

It was taken in 1983 when the Macintosh team visited the city for a meeting with Newsweek, and was posted to Google+ by Andy Hertzfield, a member of the original Macintosh development team, “in memoriam for Steve Jobs as 2011 draws to a close”:

“In December 1983, a few weeks before the Mac launch, we made a quick trip to New York City to meet with Newsweek, who was considering doing a cover story on the Mac. The photo was taken spontaneously as we walked around Manhattan by Jean Pigozzi, a wild French jet setter who was hanging out with us at the time. Somehow I ended up with a copy of it. My editor begged me to include it in my book, but I was too timid to ask for permission, especially since IBM was still making CPUs for Apple at the time.”
