Did Steve Jobs Hate the State? by Robert Wenzel � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL)

Did Steve Jobs Hate the State? by Robert Wenzel � ~ BLOGGER.GUNNY.G.1984 ~ (BLOG & EMAIL):

..... And who can forget the video which recorded the icy silence from Jobs, when Cupertino city council members tried to shake Jobs down for free Wi-Fi and an Apple Store in Cupertino.

Most fascinating, Jobs never got a license plate for his car.

The auto marketing magazine, Polk, writes:

Mr. Jobs drove a silver 2007 Mercedes-Benz SL55 AMG without a license plate.

Why? Nobody knows for sure, and multiple theories have been bandied about in Silicon Valley. Some think it’s a high-tech vehicle code distortion field or custom-built mechanized plate retractor.

Others insist that overzealous fans swipe the roadster’s tags every time they’re mounted. I even saw one blogger opine it was because the font on California license plates is so ugly. His theory is that Mr. jobs couldn’t stand to mar the aesthetics of a beautiful vehicle with the product of some state assemblyman’s sense of style.

Maybe it’s simply because he could get away with it......
