San Francisco Chronicle sex columnist Violet Blue saw Apple CEO Steve Jobs standing on the show floor at MacWorld Expo yesterday. So she decided to touch him and ask for a photo. Bad idea.

Jobs told her off, saying her request was "rude." Surrounding Apple employees allegedly sniggered. Poor girl. As consolation, her retelling of the tale got her blog more than 3,000 votes on Digg. Ubiquitous egoblogger Robert Scoble caught Blue's reaction to the ordeal on video, eventually crashing Qik, his video-hosting service.
