    I was in San Francisco on business last week. I was able to take a trip by Cupertino. I picked up a jacket, mouse pad, and a few other collectibles. We had a great time...

    Steve's car was parked right out front, so I snapped a few pics. Just thought I'd share.

    If anyone is in the area, the store is worth a trip.

    I have no clue, but apparently he always parks in that spot. You would think he would just have them put a sign up for him.

    That's pretty much solid evidence. He's well-known to park in disabled spots. :p

    Lucky I don't "visit" while he's at work. I'd just block that car in... ;)

    It's also well-known Steve tends to park in handicapped spaces...

    EDIT: Beaten!

    Definitely his car.

    He is handicapped - you try carrying that sized ego from the "regular" spots. He's been parking in handicapped spaces forever. I'd love to, one day see if I could get an actually handicapped person to rock up to Cupertino really early and park in that space - see if Steve goes nuts or not.

    I'm very, very jealous.
    If I were there I would have waited by his care until he left, just to meet him.

    And you should post some pictures of the items you purchased.

    He pays the fine when he's booked. I guess he doesn't like the look of plates.

    That's a nice looking car. But really, a handicapped spot, you can walk a couple more meters to the store Mr. Jobs.

    i wonder if the hatred he has for buttons is related to plates.

    Because he's an ***hole. He can afford to pay the fines, so he does. He's going for the clean, minimalist look. Oh, and according to the media, Steve is dying, or has already died. That's definitely a handicap on life.

    I believe, he only removes the plates when he is parked. I have seen his car with them both on and off. They have been stolen from his cars numerous times. Since he is parking at Apple inc. which is privet property. The absence of plates is not breaking any laws.

    Parking in the handicap spots is the norm for him, at least at Apple.
    I have visited the Apple campus. And their is more than just one handicap parking slot. Yet that still doesn't make it right.

    I heard steve balmer does the same thing. Not just at microsuck but at McDonalds as well.

    In a vehicle that new it's possible to drive around without plates from 2006-2009 without a ticket. Sure when you get pulled over for something else it could get the officer a little worked up.

    It's his complex! He can park anywhere he damn-well pleases!
