On a recent episode of The Eavesdrop podcast with Hector Rodriguez, shared on Reddit, Apple's former vice president of mobile advertising Andy Miller shared an incredible story about accidentally stealing Apple co-founder Steve Jobs' laptop, mouse, and mouse pad during a heated meeting in Jobs' office.

The story truly speaks for itself and begins at the 44 minute mark. Miller uses a few explicit words, so a fair warning that the video may be NSFW:


Miller joined Apple upon selling his mobile advertising company Quattro Wireless to the iPhone maker for $275 million in late 2009, reporting directly to Jobs. Miller remained at Apple until late 2011 and later served as an executive at motion-controller startup Leap Motion between 2012 and 2014.

Steve had a reputation for being a jerk, but he was nice to a very geeky 23 year-old me when I went to Cupertino for Genius Training in 2008. He was behind me in line at Caffe Macs and I didn't even realize it... he saw my Apple retail shirt and asked what I did in the store, told him I was a new Genius, he told me and the two other Geniuses standing next to me to work hard, do excellent for our customers and to be careful driving back to Bubb (the training lab). Then Steve walked off and met up with Jony who had his daughter with him, and the three walked off... I remember thinking that little girl is probably hearing about iPhones we wouldn't see for years.

Cool story! Although it reinforces the believe that Steve was an a—hol*.

Btw, this guy just admitted which brands Apple likes and which they do not... “McDonalds is childhood obesity” hahaha.

I'm not sure that qualifies as stealing.
It’s not. I think the headline is trying to draw readers in for clicks, which is actually an interesting article, but it’s certainly not ‘stealing’ by any means at all. It’s more like ‘mistakenly taken’.
