Steve Jobs walked into the room, as all oxygen in the room exited simultaneously.
We were seven feet apart.
He said: “We don’t like it when you introduce accelerator cards which are faster than our computers.” (At that time, I was the CEO of Newer Technology, which ultimately sold somewhere around 150K+ CPU accelerator cards for Macs.)
Well, that was a nice Howdy Do.

Vincent Nguyen, Editor of MyiTablet (formerly MyiPhone), SlashGear and SlashPhone shares a similar story about his meeting with The Steve.

So when I got to meet Steve at D5 the other day, I was like a kid on Christmas morning again (only with less egg-nog). I almost expected an Apple-flavored electric shock when we shook hands; what I didn’t expect was to get slapped with a legal threat.
Turns out, Steve isn’t such a great fan of MYiPhone as we are about the phone itself. His comment to me about the site was “I recommend you changing the name, we have a team of lawyers to go after that kind of stuff.”
