Sotheby's Auction House: Steve Jobs' Memo

The Atari Memo from Steve Jobs

The late Steve Jobs name is still making headlines and sure will continue to do so for decades to come. A man who completely revolutionized the way in which humans communicate with one another, now much of his personal belongings are being sold at auction.

From his earlier days in the workplace, Jobs was just one of the many employees of Atari, a company that released its video game console in October of 1977. So now his hand-written note from his earlier days at Atari is what is being auctioned off by the Sothebys Auction House. For what is expected to garner roughly $10,000-$15,000 in profits, this Atari memo dates back to 1974. According to Sotheby's, this writing focused on how Jobs wished "to improve the functionality and fun of World Cup, a coin arcade-game with four simple buttons and an evolution from Atari's Pong game."

It is rather humorous to realize that during Jobs time at Atari in the 1970s, he worked night shifts due to the fact that the other employees did not appreciate his company or input. The auction for this one of a kind document is slated to be held on June 15th at 10AM.
