Another little spat involving Steve Jobs' email: Gawker's Adrien Chen reprints a not-so-pleasant exchange here between a college journalism student and the Apple CEO that ends with him telling her, "Please leave us alone." Earlier, when she asked for help with Apple's PR staff, he answered, "Our goals do not include helping you get a good grade. Sorry." (Gawker had "tech-savvy" people look at the email headers and declare them legit.)

Long Island University student Chelsea Kate Isaacs got ticked off and made the emails public. "I was like, Wow, Steve Jobs, I get it," she tells Gawker. "You made Apple, you have a shit-load of money but you have no class." A similar spat emerged over the summer, though Apple denied that Jobs himself had written the responses in question. (Including the one telling a customer to "calm down.") See that and other Jobs stories here.
