Flashback Friday: The Long-Lost Photo of Steve Jobs and Britney Spears

Jun 6 2014 - 4:00pm

Um, can you hit me one more time . . . because I'm pretty sure that's the Apple founder and Britney Spears [1], together, on stage at Worldwide Developers Conference?! There you have it, folks — two things we wish we could bring back: Steve Jobs and the then-reigning Queen of Pop, Brit in 1999 [2], the year her first album dropped.

So this keynote was technically in May 2000, but this picture has some great odes to the '90s. There's a) Steve waving a CD around, and b) Steve demoing how QuickTime [3] works. Sigh — so much to love about the good ole days [4].

At this year's WWDC, we couldn't find very many ladies [5]. Our friends at ReadWrite looked back in time and found that not very many women have taken the stage at WWDC [6] either. We love seeing Britney up there with Steve, but here's to a stronger female presence in the years to come.
