Drive down posh Waverly Avenue in Palo Alto and, just north of California Avenue, you’ll pass the private residences of Apple’s Steve Jobs and Google’s Larry Page who, like some kind of Silicon Valley sitcom, actually live across the street from one another! What kind of awkward borrow-a-cup-of-sugar conversations do you think these guys have? Or what about when one of the Jobs children accidentally tosses a frisbee over Page’s fence? And do you think Bill Gates just TP’s the whole block for good measure?
Agricultural bonus: guess what kind of fruit tree grows in Jobs’ front yard?
