Steve Jobs, a lifelong fan of James Bond (he’d originally wanted to name the revolutionary computer “Double-O-Mac”), instructed his agency to begin work on a special celebrity Christmas ad featuring 007 himself, Sean Connery — even though Connery had yet to be signed.

“The ad was of dubious quality, clearly not one of the agency’s finer moments,” says Woods.

Though Steve had a thing for Sean Connery, the feeling was not mutual. Connery was appalled by the “advert” Jobs sent across the pond and declined to participate in the misadventure on at least three separate occasions.

Connery’s final rejection was accompanied by a note revealing one mightily peeved film star (see letter on right).

Scoopertino would have been my friend too, had a realized (or remembered) it was a satire site. :(

Connery has no patience for spambots, either.

Anybody that knew how Connery really felt about the Bond role would NEVER claim to be fucking James Bond. http://www.dictionary-quotes.com/i-have-always-hated-that-damn-james-bond-i-d-like-to-kill-him-sean-connery/

That said, Connery has always struck me as more of a Windows guy. Might be the whole Bill-Gates-trying-to-obliterate-malaria thing.
