Steve Jobs' Childhood Home is Designated a Historic Resource

The Los Altos Historical Commission unanimously voted to designate Steve Jobs' childhood home as a 'historic resource' and place it on the city's historic resources inventory, reports Mercury News.

The vote is the culmination of a two-year effort by the commission to preserve the one-story, ranch-style home as it stands. Chairman Frank Bishop praised the work of his colleagues and city staff, which included extensive research and a property evaluation.

"The documentation looks very complete -- better than some of the books as far as accuracy goes," Bishop said.

The commission did not need the permission of Steve Jobs' sister, Patricia Jobs, who is the current owner. However, she could appeal the decision.

If renovations to the home are ever sought, an extra layer of review will allow the commission to make a recommendation to city council on the proposed changes.

The original evaluation was corrected at the request of Patricia Jobs.

The home is located on Crist Drive in Los Altos. You can check out some photos below...

This is ridiculous. Unless this is also the same garage where they built the first computer, it's pathetic to sanctify the man this way. The garage is significant considering that's where Apple was born, and certainly it has become something significant in the area. But Steve's childhood home? Really?!?

i'm bane, yes that's my name when your hear the name bane, i guarantee the pain! Steve Jobs was number 1 in the game as for ashton, he's got dog shit for a brain! i'm an Apple fan, you dumb-ass, i just know that ashton kutcher was possibly the worst choice for that role, a very important role at that. And because of ashton the movie sucked ass too. i am no android fan, obviously i'm no rapper either. peace!

Look who is talking shit! How csn a fanboy like you try to sound like one but hate the movie, there is a picture of ashton and steve and both almost look perfectly alike, besides it's creating the story how revealing and undertermined how apple started, and ashton did what he could to honor jobs and let us see the entire story aka legend! You thibk the movie was a total fail, wait until steve eill say what he thinks about you and the movie!

Since when looking like someone is good acting. Love Apple, the movie sucked. It's not Steve's fault, its yours and ashtons because you have no idea what a good movie looks like. Check out IMDB and see what most fans think about the movie. Dumb-ass...

Look back at titanic and look back at jobs the movie, both are true story and both have actors that may look the same, but would both really be an immitation to the reality of these lives? The only reason the movie sucked because you act like you have to predict it the way you wanted it, not like you can see reality either like turning on your tv and looking at the trailer with critic ratings! Ranting turd!

look man, ashton is a shitty actor, that's all. it was like watching the guy from "dude where's my car" acting like Steve Jobs, also the movie was poorly directed. and ultimately sucked... that's it. titanic? had great actors and great directing. so no comparison... although not mine kind of flick, but great nonetheless.. bye now... dumb-ass... (just kidding)

What would steve do then, would he have been this ignorant toward something in honor of him like the entire story of how apple began, lets see your idea for a remake, we would love to hear from you, maybe you can just try too hard and hire whoever you thibk and see how better you are bevause if you want it to be better, go ahead and dream it all you want! When I saw the trailer ashton had good attitude, he didn't randomly shift expressions because that is what shitty acting is! Name one part ashton wasn't good in the movie! Good day turd talker!

I guess you love ashton. But you should know he sucks ass... In honor of steve? The movie is weak and steve deserved much more... The movie should have been called "dude where's my acting?" :) come on, don't take this so personally... It's just one opinion... Or is it? IMDB Rating: 5.6/10 (20.413 votes)

The movie deserved more? More what, years like the time iphone was made to see android come in so we could all see the part where sheeps talk about the iphone and galaxies? More characters to have tim, phil, and any president or whatever for the movie? I'm not that much of a ashton fan, I just loved what he did, he cared enough to do this, who else is going to do a better damn job for a movie, it is what it is whether you like it or not but whould someone be that careless over an apple movie? Your name should be named "bane down the toilet drain" because you treat a company like the real one like it's shit, maybe it was like this back then, maybe my friend who hated apple liked the movie which is true! I'm not taking it personally, I'm taking it litterally to get you to understand how different the movie would have been to the real one, but can you compare THAT easily for how both happened? Well don't, it's just an endless rant you want to carry on!
