SlashGear: At the turn of this century, I worked for a few Web sites that you haven’t heard of because they collapsed in the great tech bubble. I became a High School teacher and stuck with it for five years before I got back into tech journalism. But while I was teaching, I took on some extra jobs, one of which was working at an Apple store at a very expensive mall. I learned a lot in my time there.
For a time, I figured I was the lowliest Apple employee of all. I started working three days per week, but I was also teaching at a charter school, leading an SAT prep class and tutoring rich kids trying to bump their SAT scores above 1400. The Apple store paid fair wages for a retail job in a fancy shopping mall, but I was really there for the fun of working for Apple and making some money talking about Macs
