What you need to know
- A floppy disk signed by Steve Jobs is up for auction.
- It's expected to sell for at least $7,500.
- If we all check our sofa cussions we might be able to buy it together.
It isn't every day that something signed by Steve Jobs pops up for auction, but today is one of them. Right now you can bid on a Macintosh floppy disk signed by the Apple co-founder himself.
RR Auction currently has the disk up for auction (via 9to5Mac) and it's expected to bring in at least $7,500. That's a lot for a floppy disk, especially one you probably can't use. But boy oh boy do I want it.
Maybe if we all check our pockets and sofa cussions we can buy it together. Sound good?

At iMore, Oliver is involved in daily news coverage and, not being short of opinions, has been known to 'explain' those thoughts in more detail, too.
Having grown up using PCs and spending far too much money on graphics card and flashy RAM, Oliver switched to the Mac with a G5 iMac and hasn't looked back. Since then he's seen the growth of the smartphone world, backed by iPhone, and new product categories come and go. Current expertise includes iOS, macOS, streaming services, and pretty much anything that has a battery or plugs into a wall. Oliver also covers mobile gaming for iMore, with Apple Arcade a particular focus. He's been gaming since the Atari 2600 days and still struggles to comprehend the fact he can play console quality titles on his pocket computer.
Talking about patent trolls; It's funny how Apple filed the very patent on solving blind spots by projecting on the window right after a teenager presented a prototype of the same solution.
How does that relate to this article?
