    Ok. The kid totally knows I'm obsessed with Macs. He just bought an iMac last year because of me actually, but that's besides the point. He doesn't know who Steve Jobs really is.

    He arrived in LA yesterday, and being a typical 21 year old he has to check his myspace every 5 seconds, so he was spending a lot of time in the Santa Monica Apple Store.

    Well, it turns out that the Barenaked Ladies were playing at the store, so he got to meet them, and then saw who else but STEVE JOBS. I guess he was there supporting the event and it's only a skip away from Cupertino. He called me up and I couldn't believe it. He said there was a line to see him but then he went in the back room out of sight. (Oh and he said the 24" iMac is rediculously huge)

    I've never been to CA, neither has he until now. I was sooo mad I didn't get to see him. Why does stuff always have to happen? haha. :confused:

    This makes me so mad....

    A band a naked ladies can have a concert in an Apple store.
    But when I walked into a Apple store naked (I wanted to see how hot the MBPs where, OK) I was arrested!
    Damn celebrities....

    Yeah, but are you a lady? Bare naked ladies can do anything they want. Bare naked dudes...not so much.

    that's cool. i'd like to meet steve just because he seems like a nice guy you could shoot the breeze with for 5 or so minutes. i wish he'd come to the apple stores near me (washington, d.c. area).

    True. But that's still faster than I can get to the Apple Store on Michigan Avenue from my suburban abode. :)

    And faster than I can get to the Santa Monica store -- even with a 200 mile head start on Steve. :)

    nevermind. i have better things to spend my money on. who assigned such a high value to his time anyway, or was that figure generated randomly?

    i like how you say the hand of steve instead of just steve's hand.

    I took my small child trick-or-treating to Steve Jobs' house one year, since it's closeby and the people in Jobs' neighborhood are known for their elaborate Halloween setups for the kids -- they decorate their yards as spooky forests complete with fog machines, and extras who dress up as ghosts and sit in the trees, etc. Some even build haunted house type spook paths inside their homes that you have to walk through to get to the person passing out the treats; very effective in the historic old Palo Alto homes.

    Jobs was passing out the treats to the kids himself and was quite nice, had his whole yard decorated and exchanged a few words with me. He had Cliff bars for treats.

    I set one up months ago. I was let down, felt no urge to do anything there. Now I just use it to show off how great I'm doing to old school people.

    oh, topic! Barenaked ladies? what a mad name for a band! never heard of them myself but top name. I don't think my Apple Store (Trafford Centre) will ever have concerts. It's a bit of a small shop.

    Never heard of BNL? They're a Canadian band...been around for almost 20 years now but didn't hit it big in the US until their 1998 album Stunt. It went to #5 in the UK.

    I've lost count of the number of times I've seen them in concert...I'll be seeing them again in November when they come through town.

    And then just today, he sees Nicole Richie in Disneyland.

    Can't believe this... Californians.. is it this typical to see celebrities like this?

    She looks like a twig!

    And yes, Steve looks like a very down-to-earth nice guy, I like his keynotes a lot, the public really seem to relate with the person he is.
