This is not so much news or anything previously unknown, but a highlight of the kind of tabs domestic security keeps on those who have had contact with authorities in someway or occupy a significant role in society. Some tidbits from the 190+ page file that were pressing to the FBI:

Steve Jobs FBI File Confirms He Was a Jerk, Drug User, and Poor Student - Technology - The Atlantic Wire

The FBI investigation of Steve Jobs affirms everything we already thought we knew about the tech visionary. Sifting through the document, we find opinions on the man range between two extremes we've heard before, from laudatory to critical. The FBI file also confirms Jobs' infamous (and well-documented) past, including drug use and poor performance at Homestead High, where he earned a 2.65 GPA -- perhaps a result of his psychedelic experimentation?

Actually, the reason this file was crated and maintained was that Jobs was being considered for a federal appointment to a government commission. This sort of investigation is routine in those circumstances, as commission members will often need to view restricted and/or classified information.
