Steve Jobs' childhood home gets historical protection

  • The Silicon Valley home where Steve Jobs spent his childhood and started building his first computers is now a historic property. 

    Jobs moved into this home with his foster parents in 1968. The current owner of this property is Jobs' sister Patricia Jobs but the commission didn't require to take her permission before designating it as a historic property. She can, however, appeal it to the city council if she wishes to. 

    Patricia also helped Jobs and co-founder Steve Wozniak in building the first 100 Apple computers in this home; fifty of them were sold for $500 each.
