September 16, Jobs Day

Interesting fact: Jobs was forced out of Apple on 16 September 1985; he rejoined on 16 September 1997. So, he was there for seven years, gone for 12, and has now been back for 13.

Update: Chris Espinosa, who knows a little about Apple history, tweets:

Jobs was forced out of power 5/28/85, and resigned 9/12/85; Apple bought NeXT 12/20/96 and closed 2/4/97. 9/16 is not “Jobs day.”
