Steve Jobs’s FBI file: Read the documents (#JobsFBI)

View Photo Gallery: Steve Jobs, who co-founded Apple and revolutionized personal computing, died Oct. 5. He suffered from a rare form of pancreatic cancer.

Few would dispute Steve Jobs’s creative genius. But for all his success as a business leader and innovator, files newly released by the FBI show that some close confidants and associates did not have an especially favorable opinion of the Apple co-founder.

As The Post’s Hayley Tsukayama reports, the FBI has made public a 191-page document on Jobs that was compiled when he was under consideration for a White House appointment during the George H.W. Bush administration.

The full text of the file can be seen below. The Post’s Cecilia Kang has gone through the document to highlight it’s most noteworthy revelations, which you can see here by clicking on the “notes” tab.
