Okay, so there is this Japanese restaurant that I used to frequent often in the late 00s and Jobs would often be there (but not Woz lol).

Rumor had it he was quite tight with the owners, possibly helping bankroll the place when it opened.

They announced they were closing about 2 weeks ago.

Follow-up, the head chef has been hired by Apple and will be working at the Cupertino HQ. Crazy, as this place was pretty high-end, a incredibly different universe from the corporate lunch scene.

you made it sound like a ~scene~!

BIG HOOS aka the steendriver, Wednesday, 12 October 2011 03:40 (ten years ago) link

the only Steve Jobs food story i ever heard was from a guy i knew in college, who is now a key guy at Apple

he told me that he once watched Steve Jobs threw a hissy fit at the Apple cafeteria because he wanted pasta, but the cafeteria was serving something else that day. so Steve Jobs basically tortured the lunch ladies until they finally made what he wanted.

er, throw

sorry, it's late

You'd think he'd just ask for the head chef and have that person whip up a thing!

the first rule of the corporate lunch scene is you don't talk about the corporate lunch scene

Got to use the phrase "corporate lunch scene" today when asked for a restaurant suggestion for a business lunch. A+ would use again.

the jazz zinger (s1ocki), Thursday, 13 October 2011 22:46 (ten years ago) link

I find it TOTALLY GHOULISH when it's p much the whole front page of the whole web presence for more than a week, yeah

Autumn Almanac (Schlafsack), Thursday, 13 October 2011 23:10 (ten years ago) link

That depends upon where you look.

There'll be no need to read his biography what with EVERY PRESS AGENCY ON THE PLANET explaining every single revelation in gigantic detail.

Autumn Almanac (Schlafsack), Friday, 21 October 2011 05:11 (ten years ago) link

i.e. if you want to enjoy the book don't look at a web site or open a newspaper.

def surprised that he admits to delaying his cancer treatment

gonna be hilarious when shareholders file suit

dayo, Friday, 21 October 2011 10:52 (ten years ago) link

He didn't just delay - he chose a stupid fucking homeopathic alternative treatment instead of the one that works. And in the end, he's just another rich, narcissistic vaccine denier type. Sigh.

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 21 October 2011 16:01 (ten years ago) link

yeah I didn't phrase that correctly - I meant he hid the fact from shareholders

dayo, Friday, 21 October 2011 16:06 (ten years ago) link

sueing his executors or apple or whaa

nakhchivan, Friday, 21 October 2011 16:09 (ten years ago) link

Is that important? (Call me naive but I was always wondering why the hell there was so much attention given to what the shareholders thought about his health; I kinda bloodlessly figured they'd be more interested in, you know, sales and profits. The company wasn't SteveJobsBodilyIntegrity.com)

Ned Raggett, Friday, 21 October 2011 16:09 (ten years ago) link

well I have no idea what being a shareholder entitles you to - I just remember that waves were being made at the time that jobs was concealing too much of his illness from the public and hence shareholders

dayo, Friday, 21 October 2011 16:11 (ten years ago) link

Well, Jobs being dead certainly affects Apple and Apple stock. Jobs keeping his illness secret gave the stock an illusion of strength, where an admission that he was seeking a risky alternative treatment would have given shareholders a chance to make up their own mind as to his and Apple's future and whether or not it was worth shedding stocks then vs. now, post-fact and in a position of relative weakness.

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 21 October 2011 16:15 (ten years ago) link

That is, he knew he was dying to the extent that he told his biographer. So he was concealing a known fact of use to shareholders.

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 21 October 2011 16:15 (ten years ago) link

fwiw

Josh in Chicago, Friday, 21 October 2011 16:16 (ten years ago) link

Man I knew the stock market consisted of jumpy, nervous bastards but that's kinda weird.

Ned Raggett, Friday, 21 October 2011 16:17 (ten years ago) link

sue sue sue to establish the precdent that corporate offcers are subject to full prophylactic genetic testing & constant health monitoring it's the least shareholders deserve

nakhchivan, Friday, 21 October 2011 16:20 (ten years ago) link

tbc I think any stockholder who would file suit over this is a vampire squid - but given the grand larceny that goes on daily in the financial world I would not be surprised if tomorrow some group of shareholders filed suit

dayo, Friday, 21 October 2011 16:20 (ten years ago) link

The vampire squid (Vampyroteuthis infernalis, lit. "vampire squid from 'Hell'")

feel like the taxonomists are giving these chaps undue status with *that* name

nakhchivan, Friday, 21 October 2011 16:24 (ten years ago) link

cosign the vampire squids, but you also gotta assume that many shareholders demand the person in charge gets checked out regularly. Sort of like Hollywood studios requiring physicals from their actors (though that may be just to get naked pix).
