Steve Jobs, Mango Lassi, And The Future of Journalism

Via Saba Imtiaz, a report that Apple CEO Steve Jobs recently had a secret meeting with top executives at The New York Times at the Madison Avenue restaurant Pranna.

Jobs supposedly gave a demonstration of the new iPad and discussed how the new tablet could “serve the future of media.”

Sounds like a fairly typical business meeting. The strangest line in the article? The description of Jobs’ dinner order:

Jobs, who is recovering from a liver transplant last year, requested a mango lassi and penne (neither of which are on the Southern Asian restaurant’s menu, but with a shiny new iPad maybe in it for him, it’s not like the chef was going to say no).

Surely I’m not the only one who thinks that a mango lassi alongside penne pasta sounds absolutely disgusting?
