The moment Apple’s biggest fan met Steve Jobs

The moment Apple’s biggest fan met Steve Jobs

Student Allen Paltrow was 12 when he met Steve Jobs. Paltrow is a huge fan of Apple and had taken to shaving the company’s logo into the back of his head to celebrate every OS launch. His enthusiasm earned him a chance to meet Jobs himself and a story to last a lifetime.

The story of how Paltrow got invited to the grand opening of the 5th Avenue Apple Store in NYC starts with him emailing Jobs a picture of his head and an ‘enthusiastic and grammatically incorrect message’.

The story is a great little read and there are tons of cool pictures from the opening of the 5th Ave. store, you can see them all at Paltrow’s blog here.
