SJ: You sat on the board, and took our ideas. I know it was you, Eric. You broke my heart. You broke my heart!

Steve also showed up at the newest NYC store - upper west side - the one featured in his presentation last week announcing the ipad.
You might say the staff were thrilled. The customers didn't seem to realize who was in their presence.
