Was Steve Jobs always the polished performer? No. Was he always cool, calm and confident in front of the cameras? From this warm-up footage prior to what’s claimed to be his first appearance on TV, it seems so. Read on, gawp at Steve Jobs sans Reality Distortion Field, and wonder: Is this perplexed twentysomething somehow more endearing than the polished media-friendly persona we often see today?

Click play, watch Steve’s first on-camera performance in full, and tell what you think in the comments below. For bonus points, tell us how you think it compares to Apple’s slightly odd way of communicating its message to customers lately: using fictitious Twitter drones.

    That is really amazing to see the legendary Steve Jobs on his first TV appearance. He's alwayy saying “God.” lol. It is obvious that he's not yet that used of talking in front of pressure not like today.

    I guess somebody has to study his style of leadership in depth, so we know how the nature made him as he is now. If only we can reproduce his leadership style by design.. that would be awesome.
