    ...and Steve Jobs showed up right after I left! Palo Alto is one of the closest and nicest stores to the Apple Campus.

    Anyway, I took a jack-in-the-box I made of Steve Jobs- called the iPop. (I'm an artist, jack-in-the-boxes is how I make my living. They are wooden and handmade with hand sculpted heads.) The moment I stepped onto the block where the line was, I was mobbed by news reporters and the all the folks in the line. They had cameras and video cameras and notepads- I swear I felt like Paris Hilton. I merely went there to share in the joy about the newest Apple gadget, and show off my cool creation. Wow! I was not prepared! Some of the footage may appear on the Today Show tomorrow, as CNBC interviewed me. They said they were submitting the segment, so we'll see if that actually flies. Anyway, here are some pics of the iPop. Go to my website to see more stuff, if you like!

    Too bad you missed Steve, I think that he would have loved one. :)

    I knew Steve would not be able to resist. We had an Apple employee that tried to look like Steve but really looked more like the love child of Steve and Capitan Picard.

    He saw you on the live news and was coming to see you and get him a steve in a box. ;)

    I'm sure however he'd find a way to sue you for selling something with an apple logo on it.

    Verry unique. I like it

    Any thing with bill gates. Like, you could make a vista box were you just turn the handle and the music plays, but bill only pops out, lets say less than half the time.:D

    Quick reminder, never hurts to read a given site's Rules. ;) People should post in accordance to forum rules and likewise, if you ever see a problematic post, please please please report the posts rather than get involved yourself.

    Let's let that talk rest... let this just be a thread about that silly ol' Steve Jobs-in-a-box, mmkay?
