Mugged Developer Gets Replacement iPad and Email from Jobs

by on June 14th, 2010

Here’s an interesting story to brighten up your Monday. A Chinese developer representing TenCent (China’s dominant IM client) was invited to attend the 2010 WWDC from Apple but ended up getting mugged in San Francisco for his iPad. He gets roughed up and his iPad gets smashed. What’s a guy to do? Visit the Apple Store!

Upon hearing his story, the Apple Store replaces his iPad and not only that, he receives an email from Steve Jobs wishing him a safe journey home. Now that’s what you call taking care of your developers and customers. I wonder if the Microsoft Store would do the same to replace a damaged HP Slate/Courier (vaporware)?

If you take a look at the pictures below you can see a bruise on the guy’s head (he’s also sporting a WWDC jacket). At least he didn’t get his finger ripped off like this guy.
