Steve Jobs look-alike photo boots up new Apple conspiracy theories

But wouldn't the Apple co-founder be wearing one of his company's smartwatches?

Apple co-founder Steve Jobs died in 2011 at age 56, eight years after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. But a recent photo of a Jobs look-alike, apparently taken in Egypt, started fans buzzing.

The photo was shared over the weekend on Reddit by numerous users. The earliest use of the image I could find dates to Saturday, when Facebook user Ahmed Basyouney shared it there. Basyouney didn't immediately respond to questions about whether he was the original photographer.


A con? Just click-bait? Everybody has someone that looks like them somewhere in the world. But I've never heard of any Elvis-like conspiracy theories...

If you really stop and take a good look at the guy, he doesn't actually have Jobs' profile. This is one of those "at a glance" resemblances.

Actually, he does... but of a pre-cancer, healthier (i.e. more body fat) Jobs. The man in the picture also has more hair than Jobs did closer to the end of his life.

I think it's entirely possible this is an older (i.e. pre-Apple Watch!) photo of Jobs.



It is what it is.

Jobs had Syrian ancestry, right? Not surprising to find a middle-eastern look alike.

My thoughts exactly. Jobs had a slight build, even before the cancer, and the bridge of the nose and the area beliw his eyes are different.
