Why does a Starbucks store in San Francisco
sometimes gets prank calls for
an order of 4,000 lattes?
From Fast Company magazine:
On January 9, 2007, Steve Jobs took out his iPhone and dialed a Starbucks in San Francisco. "Good morning," answered the polite voice of employee Ying Hang "Hannah" Zhang. "How may I help you?"The magazine found the employee who answered the call.
"Yes, I'd like to order 4,000 lattes to go, please," Jobs said, grinning. "No, just kidding. Wrong number. Goodbye!"
As Jobs hung up, a large crowd in front of him erupted in laughter. That's because this wasn't some private prank call. Jobs was on stage at the Moscone Center, where he had just unveiled the iPhone to the world. His call to the Starbucks that day was the first real public phone call made from an iPhone in history.
