How To Read the lost note of Steve Jobs

Steve Jobs left this earth one year ago, but before he did, he left a note about the crazy ones to Kate and this note is the icon for Textedit. Here’s how to read it.

  1. Open finder.
  2. Open applications and drag Textedit to you desktop.
  3. Right click textedit on your desktop and select “show view options”. Increase your icon size to the maximum. On the textedit icon you can make out the note. I’ll also post a picture of it enlarged to make it easier below.
