Steve Jobs and Gil Amelio

Steve Jobs and Gil Amelio. Photo by Tim Holmes.

Tim Holmes was working late one Friday evening in 1996, when his boss told him to come to a special meeting. That would have been an annoyance for you and me, but Holmes was working for Apple as a Mac Evangelist the evening that Steve Jobs came back to Apple. And he’s posted a photoset of the event.

Taken using an Apple Quicktake camera (with the resulting color problems), the Flickr photoset shows Jobs onstage with then-CEO Gil Amelio (whom Jobs would force out) just after Apple bought Jobs’ NEXT computer system to be the basis of their next-generation operating system.
