Steve Jobs vs. College Student E-mail Battle Goes to Good Morning America
It all started when Isaacs tried to contact Apple's media relations department for a comment to include in a story she was writing for her journalism class. When she got no response, she e-mailed Jobs directly, knowing that he sometimes answers random e-mails. When she asked why his flacks couldn't be bothered to respond to her inquiries (in a much more polite way, apparently), he allegedly responded, "Our goals do not include helping you get a good grade. Sorry." (Unsurprisingly, Apple has refused to comment on the story, but Gawker says its tech team found Jobs' e-mail headers to be "legit." But we all know how gracious and humble Jobs normally acts in e-mails, right?) After a few more e-mails between the two, Jobs allegedly ended the conversation with a simple "Please leave us alone." You can catch the video of Isaacs reading her e-mails and Jobs's alleged responses over at Gawker.
