Steve Jobs never had license plates from your car
"Think Different" was a slogan of Apple that Steve Jobs liked. He did, of course, very rich.

"Let me tell you about the very rich," wrote F. Scott Fitzgerald. "They are different from you and me."

Now comes a story, following the death of Jobs on one of their differences: the legend of Silicon Valley styled around in a Mercedes without license plates. The stories are legion - who parked in a disabled only in the headquarters of Apple, he was a policeman in California just daring to nail.

However, David Heath says iTWire heard the final version of the story of Jon Callas, chief technology now a digital security company called Entrust, who used to work with Jobs at Apple.

It turns out that there is a provision in the California regulations that give a six months to get plates for a new car, and took advantage of her employment. Yes, he rented a Mercedes SL55 AMG silver, Callas said - and it changed every six months a new one.
"At no time ever in a car as old as six months, and therefore there was no legal requirement for registration plates fitted," Heath writes.

"One could also assume that the leasing company was happy - I had an endless supply of luxury cars for sale, with the previous driver is none other than Steve Jobs."

Callas was on a plane back from Australia today, said his company, but a spokesman said he had often heard him tell the story of how Jobs changed the cars to avoid having to put plates on them. No word on whether he was concerned for his safety, was a highly visible billionaire from mid-twenties.

Jaime Garza in Department of Motor Vehicles confirmed that one can drive a new car for a maximum of six months with only a temporary permit in a corner of the front windshield. CVC 4456 regulations noted:

"A vehicle displaying a copy of the report of the sale can be operated without license plates or registration card until ... [a] of six months from the date of sale of the vehicle, has expired."

But if the state sends its permanent license plates of metal, Garza said, then you are forced to put in your car.

As for parking in a disabled ... so, Jobs was first diagnosed with cancer in 2003 (photo with this story, filmed at the headquarters of Apple, was published on Flickr in September 2008). However, his biographer, Walter Isaacson, paints a picture of a complicated man who can be both inventive and insensitive.

"Why not the best at times? That's the big question," Isaacson said in an interview with ABC News. "Part of it is, it was who he was."

"I think sometimes prickly character, temperament, whatever, probably was not necessary, may have been counterproductive," Isaacson said, talking about how the most demanding jobs may be at Apple ", but it's hard to argue with results, which is the type of team he built, and the loyalty he was able to generate.
