“Growing up I was a huge apple fan-boy (fine, still am.) The first NY Apple store in Soho opening was probably the coolest thing that happened to me between the ages 6 and 12. For a while I would spend almost every weekend there. Every year for halloween I was a Mac, and I made a habit of shaving the Apple logo into my head to celebrate every OS launch,” Allen Paltrow blogs.
“My neighbor Brooke mentioned that Steve Jobs, busy as he is, always reads email sent to his public address,” Paltrow writes. “I think I was around 10 or 12, and I sent a very enthusiastic and grammatically incorrect message including a picture of my shaved head.”
Paltrow writes, “Apparently he forwarded it to the head of Public Relations, Katie, and I got invited to the opening of the 5th Avenue Cube. I can never thank them enough. This was probably the high point of my childhood.”
