A reading from the Book of Jobs, Chapters 1 and 2.
And STEVE JOBS came in unto Apple shareholders, and said “Hail, thou that art highly favoured … I shalt conceive in my company and bring forth a gadget, and shalt call it iPhone, yea, even though Cisco may weep and wail.” And the shareholders said, “When shall this be, seeing we know not when it is to be born?”
And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Arnold Schwarzenegger that all the world should be taxed. … And STEVE JOBS also went up from Cupertino, unto the city of San Francisco.
And STEVE JOBS brought forth his gadget, and wrapped it in swaddling clothes, and laid it in a manger, because there was no room in the Apple store and people were lining up around the block to get in.
