Steve Jobs – Starbucks prank 🙂
So when Jobs demonstrated Google Maps integration by searching for a Starbucks, finding a local store and then calling and ordering 4,000 lattes to go, the entire audience went wild. That prank call will probably go down in history as one of the more famous ones ever made, and Fast Company has tracked down the barista who took the call to get her comments on that groundbreaking latte order.
It turns out that the young lady who answered the call — coincidentally the first public phone call ever made on an iPhone — Ying Hang “Hannah” Zhang is still a barista at the same Starbucks. She didn’t know that it was Jobs making the prank call until after the event, when Apple fans began visiting the store and mentioning that the Apple CEO had playfully made the mass latte order.
