Steve Jobs' Nevada Connection
Steve Jobs' Nevada Connection

AIR DATE: November 2, 2011

Late Apple Co-Founder, Steve Jobs was seen as a global visionary who changed the way people communicate and consume media. But part of his family history can be traced here to Nevada. Jobs' father, Syrian born father Abdulfattah "John" Jandali, is a Reno resident and general manager of the Boomtown Casino. We talk with a University of Nevada-Reno professor who wrote an unofficial biography of Steve Jobs about Jobs' father and some of the lesser known details of his life.
