Wanna hear an incredible but true Steve Jobs story?

Around 2005, my 5 yr previous autistic son and I had been in an Apple retailer in Schaumburg Il. My son was drawn to something with lights and computer systems. I used to be a gross sales supervisor at HP and acquired free HP gear for work so that is what we used. But my son had a behavior of coming into my workplace and randomly adjusting settings on my MS based mostly computer systems. It was turning into an issue

While within the retailer they’d demo space known as Just For Kids, the place they’d computer systems with video games the children may play whereas their dad and mom shopped. The computer systems had been restricted to being turned on or off but no settings could possibly be adjusted. It was a Sunday and after I obtained dwelling I made a decision to try to contact Steve to see if I may purchase the software program. I despatched an e-mail to [email protected] and described my request. 20 minutes later I get an e-mail again from Steve. He says that one among his VPs would name me the subsequent day to rearrange one thing. People may say how do you know his e-mail. Well, I simply guessed. I already knew that folks like Mark Hurd and Carly Fiorini CEO and different execs at HP simply used their names of their e-mail. Guess they need some contact with their prospects with out some government secretary filtering content material

Next day Apple VP calls me and says that Steve desires to assist. Tells me that they must get license clearance from the sport suppliers and that might take a number of months. 2 months later a brand new apple laptop reveals up at my entrance door with the software program, all free. I ship a word to Steve thanking him and he says I’m not allowed to repeat the story, which I by no means did whereas he was alive. My son used it for 7 years. We turned an Apple family that day. I finally retired as an HP VP and and even now obtain a yearly stipend for HP gear a but simply give it to kinfolk

I’ve heard all the great and unhealthy tales about Steve, but in my e book he is a good man
