Death is a serious and heavy topic — and sometimes we need a little reminder that it is all right to focus on happier times and laugh again. In the case of the passing of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, that reminder comes in the form of a video which showcases him as a mischievous prankster.
The footage above comes from the keynote address at the 2007 Macworld Conference — the event during which the iPhone was first introduced to the world. In it, we see Jobs dial up a local Starbucks and order 4,000 lattes to go — before quickly claiming he dialed the wrong number and hanging up.
Now that is how I prefer to remember Jobs — laughing, giddy and impishly letting his inner child come out to play.
