What happens when you cut the security budget for the CEO of the world’s largest search engine?

Random old men come up to you at coffee shops and talk your ear off! Just look!

Huh? What? That’s not some random old guy but Apple CEO Steve Jobs?


While some might speculate that the entire meeting was just a planned publicity stunt, I put it to you that it was entirely random and happened because Eric Schmidt had his security budget cut last year.

Schmidt’s personal security cost Google just $244,542 last year–down from $402,562 the year before. With this drop in budget it’s highly plausible that ol’ Eric was enjoying a caramel latte, when some stranger accosted him. 😉

    Hahaha. Pretty funny. I just randomly run into Steve Jobs at coffee houses every other day. Roaming coffee houses is what he does.

    I find it funny that Steve Jobs can cross his legs and still put both feet on the ground

      I hope that’s an optical illusion because that IS strange.
