5 best Email Responses by Steve Jobs during his time at Apple.




With regard to Steve Jobs supporting a Bill in California along with government officials that would have the Department of Motor Vehicles ask people if they want to be an organ donor when they get their license.

Thank you, you’re awesome.

I lost my girlfriend on April 23, 2008 from melanoma which spread rapidly to her liver, 48 hours after we found out it spread to her liver she sadly passed away….she was only 24 and I think about her every day. I am so grateful you took time out to do this. My girlfriend and I are from Cupertino, since childhood, and it’s really nice to see the hometown hero take time out to do this.

Once again, thank you so much.


Steve’s heartfelt response:

Your most welcome, James. I’m sorry about your girlfriend. Life is fragile.





I, as well as many people I know, have HD camcorders now. The mac has been a wonderful platform for working with HD video of family and friends and special events. However, there doesn’t seem to be a good solution to distribute that HD video to family and friends while retaining high quality. I was wondering if you have any plans for Blu-ray in the mac lineup for those of us who want to be able to share our HD video.

YouTube now supports HD video.

Subject: Monsters, Inc.

Just a gentle reminder that Pixar’s newest movie, Monsters, Inc., opens
this weekend.

I hope everyone can go see it this weekend.  It’s a gem.




Circa 1998.
“Wow! We’re doing so well that we’ve actually triggered profit sharing. I didn’t even know we *had* profit sharing.”



Dell and Apple were long time competitors and CEOs of both companies often exchanged extreme critics publicly. Jobs said “Dell products were un-innovative beige boxes” and when Apple was going through rough times after Steve was fired
Michael Dell said “The best thing to do for apple, was to shut down and return the money back to the shareholders ”
After Steve jobs returned to Apple and brought it back to it’s glory, in 2006 the share price of Apple exceeded Dell’s share price.

Steve Jobs sent following email on that day:

It turned out that Michael Dell wasn’t perfect at predicting the future.
Based on today’s stock market close, Apple is worth more than Dell.
Stocks go up and down, and things may be different tomorrow, but I thought it was worth a moment on reflection today.
