FBI Releases Files on Steve Jobs

Over twenty years ago, Steve Jobs was being considered for a position on the White House’s export council, so the FBI launched a background investigation to make sure the Apple founder was squeaky-clean. It’s a standard procedure within the government, but the FBI has now made these files open to the public. The hundreds of pages are mostly comprised of boring legalese, but as noted by The Verge, there is mention of a bomb threat against Jobs in 1985—so there are probably a few other interesting tidbits hidden within the files.
