One thing I love about this company is that we might be a bunch of Type A hard-charging take-no-prisoners people — but we also know how to party. And we party just as hard as we compete. So last night we threw a huge bash on the campus to celebrate hitting the 1 million sales mark on iPhone way ahead of schedule. So much for all this B.S. from Woz and others about our sales being slow and us needing to cut prices to make our numbers. Nope. Sales of iPhone are blowing through every record ever set by any device at any price point. Amazing. At this rate we are going to hit 2 million by the end of the year, easy. Maybe twice that, if we can ramp up the supply chain to meet demand.
Anyway, last night we got everyone out on the lawn, gave out free booze and peyote, and set a giant cell phone tower on fire to represent the way we are about to torch the entire cell industry and change the world forever. Intense symbolism. And yes, we got hit with a huge fine from the Cupertino Fire Department, but you know what? It was worth it. Everyone was blown away. Lots of freaky body painting and nudity going on. I’ve always believed that you don’t really know someone until you’ve tripped together. Last night I really got to know Al Gore and I must say, he’s an awesome human being with a truly elevated spirit. Much love, Al.
