Believe me or not, but Steve Jobs is at it again with those email exchanges. Apple has previously denounced any involvement by Steve Jobs speaking to people via email, but hey, some guys who are masters at reading the locations of where emails are sent say this is the real deal. Anyways, on with the story:
Long Island University senior Chelsea Kate Isaacs emailed Jobs on Thursday complaining that Apple’s PR department wasn’t replying to any of her e-mails while she was on deadline (tell me about it, I feel her pain):
“Mr. Jobs, I humbly ask why Apple is so wonderfully attentive to the needs of students, whether it be with the latest, greatest invention or the company’s helpful customer service line, and yet, ironically, the Media Relations Department fails to answer any of my questions which are, as I have repeatedly told them, essential to my academic performance.”
She needed this info as she was composing a paper about using the iPad in academic settings. But Jobs had other ideas:
“Our goals do not include helping you get a good grade. Sorry”
After a bit more jabbing and back and forth, Steve Jobs became tired of this email shootout, and presented his “iDon’tCare” message:
Please leave us alone.
What’d you expect? He his a ninja after all.
On a side note, this entire situation is extremely funny, because if you cover tech (like I do, duh), then you’d know that you’ll be long gone before you get a response from Apple’s PR department. Ah, good times.
