During the same event, Jobs used the original iPhone to prank call a Starbucks in San Francisco, as part of a demo of Google Maps. He was highlighting how iPhone users could use the Google Maps app to find Starbucks locations.

“Good morning,” answered the polite voice of employee Ying Hang “Hannah” Zhang. “How may I help you?”

“Yes, I’d like to order 4,000 lattes to go, please,” Jobs said, grinning.

“Just kidding. Wrong number,” he quickly added and hung up, in front of 4,000 people.
