Heck, the late-night call from Steve would be worth it by itself, but when you throw in that he no doubt informed this guy that he was going to get a free PowerBook et cetera, this fellow is one lucky duck.

"My dad answered and told me someone was on the phone and said he was Steve Jobs," Britten, who is a Mac user, told Reuters. "Kind of a weird night, but I'll take it."

This guy was the luckiest guy in the world yesterday. Just getting a call from Steve Jobs would be... something.

A post-midnight phone call from Steve Jobs would be surreal.

I wonder if this guy asked Steve Jobs when the next generation iPods, iMacs, eMacs, iBooks, PowerBooks and 3 GHz PowerMacs will be out. If he did then I hope that he reads this site and posts on the forum.

Hahaha I wish I had won, I would have kept Steve on the line forever askin him this that and the other, so much so he probably would have got really pissed off and hung up. A very nice touch though, I wonder if the winner suggested not collecting his 17" PB until it has a G5 in it :rolleyes:
